Sort of a side note on this ... but this free app gives you MUCH more control over tool tips ...

"both English and Spanish "
Do you mean at the same time ?

Is that possible. I figured I would just write out both in the tool tip. However it would be cool if I could stack them on two separate lines. Is that possible...?

You mean display both at the same time?
That will be tricky and potentially confusing

Anything can be done....

How much trouble you want to go through to do it is the tricky bit.
;-)

Untested suggestion for displaying English or Spanish tooltips:
First you must have a table storing both sets of Tooltips (English and Spanish)
You must also store the name of the control as well
Then create some type of variable that stores what language the tooltip should be displayed in. (Based on the user login perhaps?)

Then on the Mouseover event of each control, trigger code to display the appropriate Tooltip>

YourControl.Tooltip=Dlookup("YourTipText","YourTipTable", "YourTipLanguage=" & "'" & YourLanguageVariable & "'" & " And " & "YourControl=" & "'"YourControlNameVarible & "'")

???

First investigate MX's link.

Again, my post was off the cuff, I have not the time right this moment to test the theory behind it, or to create a sample.

But it seems as though it might work...?
