I do not want some cell annotations to be available to others. If I am making an invoice, sometimes I would like to add a private note to myself which I do not want a client to see. Is this not possible?
I think you could only do this with VBA
To hide comments
Application.DisplayCommentIndicator = xlNoIndicator
To show comments
Application.DisplayCommentIndicator = xlCommentIndicatorOnly
Hi Please see below. Hope it helps. Select File, Options, Advance and under display section the option will be available.
Showing or Hiding the comments and/or the indicator by changing options from the Excel Options dialog box, can be reversed from the review Tab of the Ribbon.
Comments are seen by HOVERING.
If you want to add a comment that YOU only can access, there is a work around that limitation by doing the following:
You are the only one who could select the cell (so long as you can unprotect the sheet) and accordingly read the comment.
Hope that helps
