Before we learn about how to add comments in a sheet, we have to understand about the comments. What are comments and how can we identify that if it is a comment in Microsoft Excel.

We can use the Comments in Excel to remind ourselves and inform someone else about what the cell contains. To add the comment in a cell, Excel provides the Insert Comment function.After inserting the comment it is displayed with little red triangles

To Add the new comment follow below given steps:-

  • Select the cell E11.
  • Right click with the mouse.
  • A popup will appear, from the list select Insert Comment.


  • You can write your remarks in this comment box.
  • Let’s say if we want to put the remarks in this yellow box for that particular date related write Saturday off.


  • Click anywhere in the sheet.

Where you had put the comment, the cell will appear with a red colored triangle.In this manner we can add comments in all the yellow marked cells.
