QToolTip::add( myTable->cellWidget(0,0), ....

Not quite, QTableItem is not a widget and usually QTable::cellWidget() returns 0. You can place a widget inside a cell using QTable::setCellWidget().


anything i ca do?

You could try to create tooltips for the table itself dynamically, depending on the mouse position.
