Comments

Comments are annotations that you and other document reviewers can add to a document. These notes can be viewed on screen but don't print unless you want them to.

To insert a comment

1.
Select the cell for which you want to insert a comment (Figure 5).

Figure 5. Start by selecting the cell you want to enter a comment for.


2.
Choose Insert > Comment (Figure 6).

Figure 6. Choose Comment from the Insert menu.


Two things happen: A comment marker (a tiny red triangle) appears in the upper-right corner of the cell and a yellow box with your name and a blinking insertion point appears (Figure 7).

Figure 7. Excel prepares to accept your comment.


3.
Type your comment into the yellow box. It can be as long or as short as you like (Figure 8).

Figure 8. Enter your comment in the yellow box.


4.
When you are finished, click anywhere else in the worksheet window. Your comment is saved and the yellow box disappears.
