Printing Comments

Posted by David Achterberg on January 30, 2002 9:44 PM

This is a repost, since it seems to have gotten lost in this board.

I have done a fairly extensive search for this on the web (and on this site's archives), so unless I overlooked something I cannot find what I want.

I am in the process of re-vamping our office timesheet, partly to learn more about Excel and partly because the thing needs improvement.

For some jobs, each team member needs to keep a detailed daily list of what was done by him/her. I am trying to create a worksheet so that a short description could be entered, but that will balloon into several pages being printed if I create a description for every project, every day, for up to two weeks. So I hit upon the idea of using Comments, which will work perfectly for this situation, except (and here is the question (finally!), How can I format the printing of the comments (which I will set up to print at the end) to include the Project Name (already on the worksheet) and Date (already on the worksheet) of the cell the comment was entered in, along with the comment? Something like:

Project Name:Date:Comment

The Project Name, Date and Comment are all on the same worksheet.

Any ideas? Anyone can reply directly to me as well as the message board.

Thanks for any help.

I only have part of the question answered for you.

If you want to print the comments at the end of the sheet follow this path:

File > Page Setup
Print tab
Under the print section by comments,
select At End of Sheet.

That's all I know how to do at this time!

Hope this helps out!

Thanks for the reply, but I already tried that; it just references the cell as far as I can see. I need to be able to reference a project and date.
