Printing Cell Comments

Jul 8, 2009

I have several worksheets that have comments in the cells. Most of the comments i have set to "un-hide" and they can be printed. I now have this one spreadsheet where no matter what I do I cannot print the comments.

I must have something turned on or off but for thwe life of me I cannot figure out what it is. I can see the comments on the screen but when I go to print preview they are not there.

Printing / Not Printing Ranges Based On Cell Contents

Apr 11, 2008

I have a report that is generated from a manufacturing process that looks like the example below. the report is 40 pages long when all the data is printed. i am looking for a way to only print this range if a dimension is "out of tolerance". if the dimension is within tolerance, there is always the "garbage" text of plus and minus. if every row is "within tolerance" in the range the cells in the OutTol column would all contain the "garbage" text but it will not always be identical. so, in summary, actual OutTol values = print and all "garbage" = not printed.

Autoupdate Cell Comment Based On Cell Input / Dynamic Cell Comments?

Aug 16, 2013

I'm wondering if it is at all possible to have a cell comment automatically update depending on what data is input in the cell (via user input, VLOOKUP, etc.)?

For example, if cell A1 contains the text "CHARLES" with a comment saying "Employee of the Month", and is then subsequently updated with the new text "JOHN" (again, via direct input, a VLOOKUP, data validation, etc.) is there a way to have the comment automatically update to say something else, such as "Team Lead" for example?

I've considered using VBA to accomplish my goal, but am unsure how to compose an effective code to do so. I've also considered perhaps creating a named table filled with all the different comment possibilities I would like to have used in this cell and then inputting a formula in either cell A1, or the comment contained therein, that would then call the corresponding text from that table based on the data in cell A1. Honestly, I'm not sure that what I'm trying to do is even possible;

Excel 2007 :: Cutting Portion Of Cell Value To Cell Comments

Aug 9, 2012

I have an Excel 2007 workbook with several sheets, and various cells in several of the sheets have column headers with a description in the same cell enclosed in curly brackets, e.g. Header{Description}. I would like to to keep the column headers in their respective cells, but move (cut) the descriptions along with the brackets to the respective cell comments.

Printing Multiple Workbooks With Printing Preference As Landscape

Jan 15, 2012

I would like to know if there is a way to print several different workbooks at once but keeping my printing format which I would like to be Landscape and Fit to one page. Reason is simple as I work in a office where staff is handed in several jobs to do everyday. They finish the jobs and log all the info on the database. I log on to database and put all their daily diaries and because it is all over the place I have to go in each file and set printing preferences which takes an hour in the morning and hour in the evening. I could do with some sort of automation where all diaries are automatically printed in Landscape and Fit on one page.

Cell Comments Don't Appear When Hovering?

Jan 7, 2013

I have several comments being placed into a pivot table from a macro. However, all of a sudden, when I changed the source of the Pivot table, the comments now do not appear when hovering over the cell. They only appear way off to the right if I click "review," "Show/hide comment" or "show all comments."

Automatic Cell Comments

Dec 28, 2006

I have a worksheet with the following in Column E and F respectively:

ID Name
100 aaa
100 bbb
200 ccc
200 ddd
200 eee
300 fff
400 xxx
500 yyy
500 zzz
500 kkk
500 lll
500 mmm

When I input an ID number in Cell A1 and if it is found in the above table, it should bring all the names corresponding to that ID in a cell comment.

The ID Number is repeated in the above table because the names in Colum F are the dependants name for that particular ID.

Add Cell Comments Macro

Jan 2, 2007

I am trying to add comments in a selection of cells and where there is a value then the comment should show the formula value of the cell ie if the formula in cell A1 is = 9 + 10 then the comment should show this. This I have got to work, but if I have a comment already the macro fails and I have tried to get round this but I am not clever enough.

Dim r As Range

For Each r In Selection
If r.Comment = True Then

Udf That Creates Cell Comments

Feb 15, 2007

I have a list on my first worksheet that is sequentially numbered in the first column, and has work activities in the next column. On my second worksheet, I have those sequential activity numbers as the column headers on a new list. Problem is I don't have any room to label the new list by the activity's actual description(second column, first sheet). If I did, I would just use a simple VLOOKUP.

So, what I would like to do is utilize the VLOOKUP to pass the activity description string to a UDF that will create a comment in those column headers. Then when the user mouses over the activity numbers, the respective activity descripiton will pop-up as a comment thus solving my space problem!

Sum Numbers In Cell Comments

Dec 5, 2007

I would like to be able to sum quantities held in comments. I am using the Ozgrid VBA module to sum cells based on a fill color, and it works incredibly. However, sometimes I only want to sum a fraction of a cell's contents, and I don't want to use separate fill colors for all possible combinations, so I am thinking to have the comment tab contain the quantity that I want to sum. Example: employee has a total hrs worked of 8 but 2.75 of those hours are to be allocated to sick pay. Typically employees are restricted to taking benefit hours in increments of 4 or 8, and I have some coding to handle that situation.

Loop Through Cell Comments

Jan 24, 2008

I need help with my current macro so that it will look in several cells (myrange) if comment(s) are found, write it in a particular cell, so that you end up with all comments written in that cell. If no comment are found then search until the end of the range(or until all comments are found). My current problem is that it is repeatedly writing the comments it finds and I end up with the same number of comments in one cell as number of cells in myrange.

VBA To Add Comments Based On Cell Text

Jun 5, 2014

I have a VBA that can add a comment based on the cell value, however, I need it to do it for the whole worksheet and not just one cell. I am pretty new to using VBA's, so this is the best code I could find that would perform what I need. If there is a way to have it do run a vlookup, instead of me listing all the cases, that would be great as well.

Sub AddComment()
Dim strText As String
With Range("s6")
Select Case UCase(.Value)
Case "UPT": strText = "UnPaid Tardy/Late"

Removing Comments If Cell Value Changes To Blank

Apr 29, 2014

I have Main worksheet (sheet 9) and some codes in Sheet 10 which I use as a source for data validation in Sheet 9. So far I have a macro which looks for changes in cells and, when someone chooses a code from the list the macro adds a comment to the cell and populates it with an explanation of the code. The explanations are also in the code worksheet (Sheet 10). It works really nicely but I cannot work out how to remove the comment if the user clears the value in the cell.

My Macro thus far is:

Cell Comments - Not Going Into Edit Mode

Jul 9, 2007

I am using a lot of double click routines in my sheet. In order for the sheet to be more user friendly I have used the comments of cells to tell the user what to do. For instance "Double click to choose type" or some such. Everything works great except that after the user selects what they want from the userform and it hides and the focus comes back to the sheet, the comment is in edit mode. While this is not horrible it is not as nice as I would like. I have tried to have my code send the active cell to another cell and then back, but that doesn't seem to work. Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep the comments from going into edit mode?

Transfer Comments With Cell Value Using Formula

Jul 15, 2009

I am dealing with large amount of data.

In the first worksheet, there are multiple comments and I need the property of the cell including the comment to be transferred to the second sheet using a formula.

Suppose in "Sheet1" in cell A5 it says "Number of Sales" with a comment "Check everyday".

Know I need to transfer this to say in "Sheet2" in cell A5. So in A5 of Sheet2 I can type
This only brings the text and in this example it would say "Number of Sales" without the comment. All i need is for the comment to be joined with the cell.

I do not how to use Visual Basic and need your help

I cannot use Copy Paste in this case because the file is too large.

If there is no comment it should just write the value of the cell and if no value in cell than it should leave it blank. I will attach a file as a example

VBA Code - Trying To Index Cell Comments

Jan 3, 2014

I have a worksheet that has user fillable cells from B11-AR53. I want the user to be able to attach comments to cells and then to be able to print them on secondary sheet. I know that excel already can perform this function, but it references the cell address and I don't like that method. I want to have the comments on the printout indexed and tied to an index number in the cell. Creating another worksheet with the comments only is perfectly fine. I am currently using this formula (below) to index the comments on the worksheet that they are attached to.

Ideally my report/second worksheet would list-

1 - Comment that is indexed as 1 would be here
2 - Comment that is indexed as 2 would be here
....and so forth

Sub CoverCommentIndicator()
Dim ws As Worksheet
Dim cmt As Comment
Dim lCmt As Long
Dim rngCmt As Range
Dim shpCmt As Shape

Transfer Cells Values To Cell Comments

Aug 22, 2007

I have a report where, month in month out, i have to append columns on the right, to give a Year to date figure. Now there are many rows with different numbers but one of the columns is call [NOTES]. This is where the user can provide commentry on the weekly figures.

Now whats getting annoying is i have to copy this commentry and then create a comments box then paste the text in there and finally, hide the comment.

So what i want to be able to do is be able to Copy the cell, then, have a right click menu button saying "Paste As Comment", so it paste the selected cells contents into a comment and hides it.
