Hi All
The code below adds a button to the ribbon in Excel 2007. The problem Im having is that the tooltip is all added in one line. Is there a way to make it go to the next line so it looks something like this?
Prepare an MS Word document with
 suppliers profiles and automatically
 e-mail it to them. The document will
 contain the name of the company,
and where available the name of the
 contact person. The template must
 be available in C:\Data\SupplierProfile.docx.
Thanks in advance
Elmo

screentip="Prepare an MS Word document with &#10; supplier profiles and automatically &#10; e-mail it to them. The document will contain the name of the company, and where available the name of the contact person.

Hi Simon
I thought I deleted this question. Obviously I did not. You cannot use any of the standard XML ways to force a line break in the screentip tag. What does work though is to use the supertip tag. The line is automatically broken where needed and you can use &#10; or &#13; breaks where needed.  Using these breaks in the screentip just gives you those little box characters like this
