Add Comments to Excel worksheets
Sometimes it helps to make notes as you develop an Excel worksheet. Adding comments to cells is easy in Excel 97. Just right click the cell to which you want to attach a comment, then choose Insert, Comment. Type in your comment, then click anywhere outside the comment box when you're finished to save it.

When you add a comment to a cell, Excel places a small red triangle in the upper-right corner of the cell. To read the comment, move the mouse pointer over a commented cell. The comment will be in view as long as the mouse pointer remains over the cell.

To remove or change a comment, just right click that cell again and choose either Edit Comment or Delete Comment.
