You can select the word Resize and then press f1. (though the parameters are just number of rows and number of columns)

No, you won't get the tooltip hints that way. There may be a keyboard shortcut to re-display them, however I find that the most effective way of gaining information is to position your text cursor (AKA click once) on the ".Resize" method, and press the F1 key. This directly brings up the help window for the "current" object/method/keyword/etc. In the case of methods and functions, just expand the Applies To section that is relevant to what you want to know about, if needed, and the parameters are all explained in detail.

The online MSDN library on VBA can also help, though takes much longer to access and is less convenient for this kind of exploring.

You may also find that if you select the opening parenthesis and delete it, then retype it, you get the tooltip back up.

rory,
did you try in my file?  I still can't get the screen tip even after that.  Send me a screenshot if you do.

Ah, no it won't work with Selection because it cannot determine at design time what type of object selection might refer to. F1 should still work though.
