A2K- "floating" form similar to Northwind splash screen, i.e., as an info box?

    I've been looking in the archives but I must not be anywhere near the
    correct term for what I'm trying to which is why nothing is coming up.

    I remember seeing something in Northwind example db, but mine seems to
    be corrupted and I'd have to reinstall but I'm going to describe what
    I remember seeing. It was a sort of splash screen that one could then
    tick on a box in the corner to not have that box come up after that.
    I imagine now that I know more than I did back then, that it was
    probably a form with a graphic with accompanying code in the vbe (?).

    I'd like to create something similar as sort of help box. I have a
    form and it has a close box so that a user can open and close this
    info box, but it opens up as a full-sized form. Is there a way to
    make this a free-standing box like that Northwind "splash screen"-type
    thing I describe above?

    Thanks. :eek:D
