Add Comments to Your Spreadsheet

Excel offers an easy way to include some documentation within the spreadsheet you are working on. A few reasons for including comments in your work may be to explain a complex formula, note possible future changes or to remind you that you have some hidden columns you might want to come back to.

Adding comments is a very simple process in Microsoft Excel. There are two easy ways to go about adding a comment.

Adding a Comment #1: Select the cell where you want to add the comment. Select the “Insert” toolbar menu and select “Comment”. A box will appear and then go and enter your comment in the bubble/box provided.

Adding a Comment #2: Select the cell where you want to add the comment. Right-click inside the cell and select “Insert Comment”. Go ahead and enter your comment in the space provided and that’s it.

After your comment has been added, you can easily identify what cells have comments attached to them by the red triagle on the right side of the cell. To Edit the commented Cell, select “Edit Comment” from your right-click menu. To delete the comment, just right-click on the cell and select “Delete Comment”.
