Add this to your form code containing the dbgrid. It changes the tooltip text to reflect the contents of the cell over which the mouse is positioned.

Private Sub DBGrid1_MouseMove(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
    On Error Resume Next
    With DBGrid1
        .ToolTipText = .Columns(.ColContaining(X)).CellValue(.RowBookmark(.RowContaining(Y)))
    End With
End Sub
