    Try clicking projects, components and then Microsoft 2.0 object library.

    Using these objects put a text box (of the new sort) in a picture box (of the old sort).

    The new text box can have different property values like

    backstyle and special effect; change these values to zero = transparent.

    Now - in the picture box - add your picture and the effect will be a text box with a background picture.

    Hope that helps

    Phil
