Chapter 4. Editing Cell Content > Using Comments to Explain Cell Content

Using Comments to Explain Cell Content

Many times, the content we add to or edit in a cell requires more explanation or supporting information than we can easily add to the worksheet. Explaining, for example, that the price contained in a particular cell includes a 5% discount is easy enough to do by typing this text in an adjacent cell. If, however, the 5% discount is offered only to certain customers or will be going up to 8% within the next few days, this extra information might be too cumbersome to add as actual worksheet content. This explanation or parenthetical information can be added in the form of a comment, a box containing text that appears whenever the mouse is positioned over the cell that needs explanation (see Figure 4.25).

Author's Note

Reviewers can also use comments to ask questions of the workbook's owner.
