How to Copying a Cell Comment

Before we learn about how to copy 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 acell, Excel provides the Insert Comment function. After inserting the comment it is displayed with little red triangles.

To copy the cell comment one cell to another cell we will use the Paste Special option. Paste Special option is used for pasting only the cell contents (without formatting) or only the formatting (without the cell contents).


Let’s take an example and understand how we can copy the cell comment one cell to another. We are having working hour’s calculator sheet. In which we have inserted so many comments to remind the time calculations for our self and for users too.
To copy cell comment from one cell to another cell follow below given steps:-

  • Select the cell E11 in which comment is inserted.
  • Copy the cell by pressing the key Ctrl+C on your keyboard.
  • Select the cell where you wanted to put the cell comment.
  • Right click with the mouse.

  • Paste Special dialog box will appear.
  • Click on Comments and Click on ok.
