Hi all.
I have an Excel Workbook with multiple sheets that is an Order / Invoice / Inventory Program that I developed. In it I want to write comments to help employees understand how to fill out the various sheets in case they run into trouble.
I cannot use "comments" boxes because the sheets are Protected so that various formulas cannot be overwritten.
Is there a way to have the user press a shortcut key such as F9 or something similar that would
1- Preferrably show help for that sheet only or 2- a complete list of all help tips on 1 popup comment box?
Any and all suggestions are appreciated.
Thanks ... Farmboy

Round to nearest half hour?
Use =MROUND(A2,"0:30") to round to nearest half hour. Use =CEILING(A2,"0:30") to round to next half hour.

LOL .....Never mind folks ..... boy am I dumb. I just figured out that if I entered the comments first "before" protecting the sheet that they would be there.
Proves You should always THINK before opening your mouth .. thanks anyway
