I'm trying to get the comments from the cells that are on another sheet to appear when my users hover over cell where drop-down list is.
Please help, Mike in Cali...

Mike,

If you're comfortable with a vba approach you might consider the following...

Code:
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim cmt As Comment
Dim dvRange As Range, r As Range
Set dvRange = Sheets("Sheet2").Range("D4:D7") 'Change to your sheet name and range

If Not Intersect(Target, Range("H4")) Is Nothing Then 'Change to your Data Validation range
    For Each r In dvRange
        If Target.Value = r.Value Then
            Target.ClearComments
            Target.AddComment.Text r.Comment.Text
        End If
    Next r
End If
End Sub
The code should be pasted into the sheet module corresponding to the sheet with the drop down.

Cheers,

tonyyy
