Use a Text Field with some HTML allowed and a formula like this:

"<span title='" & [Notes] & "'>" &
[Field] &
"</span>"

the formula isn't working or I am doing something wrong, the field is appearing blank,
"<span title='" & [Notes]& "'>" &
[Assigned To] &
"</span>"

You might have to convert your [Assigned To] field to Text: ToText([Assigned To])

Thanks it worked but I created a new field, can I combine this with my current field

</span>&nbsp<a href='" & URLRoot() & "db/" & [_DBID_FIELD] & "?a=q&qid=51&nv=1&v0=" & [RecordID] & "'><img src='https://images.quickbase.com/si/16/014-view.png' /></a>",

The above formula is working for what I want but stops showing hover text if there is an apostrophe in the text. Is there a workaround for this?
