Hi - anyone know a way to determine if a cell has an annotation within the text string?

I've got some data that has annotations and I'd like to highlight the cell if it does include an annotation.

(This source data gets updated each month so manually going through the list is a last resort...)

thanks,

GRC

Which Excel functions can ignore hidden rows?
The SUBTOTAL and AGGREGATE functions ignore hidden rows. AGGREGATE can also exclude error cells and more.

Hi

Do you mean a comment or a note like this?

=SUM(d1:d10)+N("I can write here")

The following deals with both cases:

Code:
Sub Annot()
Dim c As Range


For Each c In Range("c25:c35").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeFormulas)
    If InStr(c.Formula, "+N(") > 0 Then c.Interior.Color = RGB(190, 95, 45)
Next


For Each c In Range("d25:d35")
    If Not c.Comment Is Nothing Then c.Interior.Color = RGB(222, 111, 44)
Next


End Sub
