Word-wrap for name.controltiptext.

I have a series of controls on a form that I want to add a Pop-Up help for.  "Perfect" you say, use the controltiptext method.  This works just fine. However, some of the help is fairly long.  I want it to word-wrap.   I can accomplish this with VBA in the form-open (for example: name.controltiptext = "this"+chr(13)+"works").

My questions is: can I accomplish this without using VBA.  I tried to set controltiptext to "this"+chr(13)+"works", I get that string as the pop-up help wrather then word wrap.  

Since I have about 15 controls on the screen, I would rather not have code all 15 of them in the form-open procedure if possible.

Thanks.

Use Alt010 on the numeric keypad for the word wrap. That is, hold down the Alt key, and type 010 on the numeric keypad (Num-Lock has to be turned on first). So, for your example, type:

This{Alt010}works.
