Tooltips in VBA

I need to create tooltips on a form I'm running in Excel. I'm neither particularly familiar with VBA (most of my Microsoft dev experience is in C# and VB6), nor tooltips.

Does Microsoft provide a nice simple way to do this, or is there a free package out there I can use (with source code, as I need to ship my Excel sheet around and don't want to include a .dll with it)?

If you are using a userform in excel and you added objects to that form then you can use the "ControlTipText" option in the property window of that control to add you tooltip. So when the user is hovering over the object that text will be shown.

I hope this works for you
