Can I add a tooltip text to a .jpg image that has been positioned in an Excel worksheet cell via the AddPicture method?

I add a .jpg graphic (sh)    to an excel sheet (wsIF)   at cells.row (rw) , cells.column (cl)

within an outer loop...
      With wsIF.Cells(rw, cl)
               Set sh = wsIF.Shapes.AddPicture("D:\bla\myPic.jpg", msoCTrue, msoTrue, .Left, .Top + 1, -1, -1)
               wsIF.Shapes(wsIF.Shapes.Count).Height = .Height
               wsIF.Shapes(wsIF.Shapes.Count).OnAction = "Item_Files_Icons_onAction" 'drive a macro
      End With
                wsIF_dat.Cells(activeItemFile_rowNo_wsItemFile, 1) = sh.Name 'to data

Is there a way of adding a tooltip property to the .jpg, so when the user points the cursor at the .jpg, some advisory text appears? I do not wish to add a comment to the cell in which the graphic appears, because the cell should be approx the same size as the graphic.

Thanks

Hi,

you could maybe use a dummy Hyperlink

wsIF.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=wsIF.Shapes(wsIF.Shapes.Count), Address:="", ScreenTip:="blabla"
