SharePoint - When mouse over field in form, how change text displayed

Asked By JEFF HICKS on 30-Apr-09 10:18 AM
I am using MOSS 2007, and I am trying to have it so when a user puts the cursor over a field in a form they need to fill out, text will show explaining what is needed in that particular field. Ultimately, I would love to bind each field to a coresponding description located in a 'field help' list. The list has only 2 columns; a name column and a description column. I only have access to SP designer 2007. Hopefully I gave enough info for someone to help me....I'm stumped.

Under General Settings, you can select the option that says, "Show Detailed Tooltip in MouseOver Event"
But i am not sure how to configure the popup contents.

And you can use Javascript to show content on mouse over as described here,
