Adding and Viewing Cell Comments

Some cells contain data or formulas that require 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.


1.gif Right-click the cell to which you want to add a comment, and choose Insert Comment from the shortcut menu that appears.

2.gif Type the desired text into the comment area. When you’re finished, click anywhere in the worksheet to accept the comment.

3.gif The cell’s upper-right corner now contains a red triangle, indicating the presence of a comment. To view the comment, move the mouse pointer over the triangle.

4.gif The comment appears as a ScreenTip. To remove it from view, simply move the mouse pointer away from the triangle.
