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.
