Excel makes it easy for you and your colleagues to insert comments in workbook cells,
adding insights that go beyond the cell data. For example, if a regional processing
center’s package volume is exceptionally high on a particular day, the center’s manager
can add a comment to the cell in which shipments are recorded for that day, noting
that two very large bulk shipments accounted for the disparity.
When you add a comment to a cell, a lag appears in the upper-right corner of the
cell. When you point to a cell that contains a comment, the comment appears in a
box next to the cell, along with the user name of the user who was logged on to the
computer on which the comment was created.
