Hey Everyone,

Does anyone know a shortcut to adding a comment and then returning to the next cell to enter documentation?

Thanks so much for your help!
 

Excel Facts

Which came first: VisiCalc or Lotus 1-2-3?
Dan Bricklin and Bob Frankston debuted VisiCalc in 1979 as a Visible Calculator. Lotus 1-2-3 debuted in the early 1980's, from Mitch Kapor.

Thank you so much - but, can I change that to something a little less - you know - like control something or, I guess /im is better than having to hit the mouse.

Thank you again

Shift-F2 will get you into edit mode for an existing comment.
Don't know any hotkey to create one other that what Brad suggested using the Standard menus.

You can create a macro with code like this:
Code:
ActiveCell.AddComment
Then use your own Hotkey for that macro.
