hello,

i have just changed my licensing for 365, and reinstalled all office 365 business apps.

i have just opened a excel sheet i had and tried to edit the comments.
the problem is that there is now no "comments" section showing under the "review" tab, and no comment option appearing when i right-click the cell.

note - i have definitely got the latest version.

not sure if anyone else has had this problem.

thanks in advance

I have heard Excel is now referring to Comments as Notes. See if you see something on your ribbon about "Notes"

"Notes" may have added features.
