Brought to you by Alandale Training a great resource online for tips and on-site computer training courses in Vancouver, BC. Visit their site at

As I work on a spreadsheet in Excel I find I sometimes want to record why I entered a specific value in the cell or what a complex formula does.  Comments let you do both of these things.

To add a comment to a cell:
1. Right-click on the cell
2. Select Insert Comment
3. Key in the text and then click outside the comment box

A small red triangle (the comment indicator) appears on the top right corner of the cell.  To display the comment, move the mouse pointer over the cell.

To edit or delete the comment, right-click on the commented cell and select Edit Comment or Delete Comment.

Now you can capture the thought process behind all those great spreadsheets!
