Excel has many ways to analyze data and present a picture to users. Occasionally, you may find it helpful to enter a comment or note on a specific field.
To enter a comment, find the field you want to notate and right-click. Select "new note." You may begin typing your commentary. Click somewhere in the free space of your spreadsheet to move out of the comment box.
To view comments you have added, hover over the cell, and you will see the text.
Note: It is not wise to overuse comments. If you need to comment on multiple lines of data, adding a column for notes may be best.
We love feedback from our customers and implement suggestions often. What shortcut do you use the most? If you have a question or idea for a Microsoft Windows or an Excel tip that you would like to see, contact me, and I might feature it!
