Adding and Managing Cell Comments
Some cells contain data that requires an explanation or special attention. Comments provide a way to attach this type of information to individual cells without cluttering the cells with extraneous information. A red triangle indicates that a cell contains a comment, which you can view in several different ways. After a comment is in place, Excel makes it easy to edit or delete it.
Right-click the cell to which you want to add a comment.
Select Insert Comment.
Type the desired text into the comment area. When you’re finished, click anywhere in the worksheet to accept the comment.
The cell’s upper-right corner now contains a red triangle, indicating the presence of a comment. To view the comment, hover the mouse pointer over the triangle.
To edit a comment, right-click on the commented cell.
Select the Edit Comment option.
To delete a comment, right-click on the commented cell.
Select the Delete Comment option.
