Hi,

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Keerthi

This is what IBI says will do it. I've never tried it.

. Make sure each field in your File descriptions has a description listed.
(Example: Make sure the DESCRIPTION attribute has a value in it in your
metadata)

2. To enable the Pop Up Descriptions on HTML reports, use SET POPUPDESC = ON
in your procedure or enable Pop Up descriptions from the Report Painter
in Developer Studio under Report Options.

Just tried it, and it works.

SET POPUPDESC = ON

TABLE   FILE CASHFLOW
 PRINT  *
 WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 10
END

Did you also try it with a very wide report, where you have to scroll horizontally?
Try to see the popups for the rightmost fields ...

Looks like the colours are hardcoded.

You will have to create yout own script/function to override the IBI one.

e.g. (tested in ie6)
SET POPUPDESC = ON

TABLE   FILE CASHFLOW
 PRINT  *
 WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 10
END

-RUN

-HTMLFORM BEGIN
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
function IBI_popupDesc(msg)
{
    var content="<TABLE WIDTH=200 BORDER=1 BORDERCOLOR=black CELLPADDING=2 CELLSPACING=0 "+
    "BGCOLOR=YELLOW><TD><FONT COLOR=black SIZE=2>"+msg+"</FONT></TD></TABLE>";

    if (ns6) {
        document.getElementById("IBI_popupHere").innerHTML = content;
        skn.display = ''
    }
    else if (ie4) {
        document.all("IBI_popupHere").innerHTML = content;
        skn.display = ''
    }
}
//-->
</script>
-HTMLFORM END
