Comments in MS Excel

How to Edit-Update Comments


Sometimes more than one or two person are working on same Excel sheet, so to understand every step which you have taken for next person, we use comments.


To add any comment to a particular cell, we will right click on it and select 'Insert Comment' option. After that we can write whatever we want to in that comment.


Now that particular cell with comment will show a red arrow on top right corner of it. This will help the next person to understand that this is where comment is written. For reading that comment we just need to hover our mouse pointer on that red arrow.


We can also add comment by going to our REVIEW tab and selecting add comment option.


So by using comments we can make our work book for our Excel sheet very easily understandable for the next person or next user.


Shortcut for adding comment is 'Shift+F2' keys.
