Add a comment to a cell

Example of a worksheet comment

Comments are notes that you enter for a cell.
  1. Click the cell you want to comment on.
  2. On the Insert menu, click Comment.
  3. In the box, type the comment text.

If you don't want your name in the comment, select and delete the name.

  1. When you finish typing the text, click outside the comment box.

 Note   When you sort, comments are sorted along with the data. In PivotTable reports (PivotTable report: An interactive, crosstabulated Excel report that summarizes and analyzes data, such as database records, from various sources, including ones that are external to Excel.), however, comments do not move when you change the layout of the report.
