I am here to ask anybody who is having trouble like what i am having. I had to put an explanation so instead of putting that in a cell, I have put that into comment section and saved a file as .xlsx but when I tried to open that in different version of excel it opened the file successfully but it had no undo the comment section or in other words it did not show the explanation that i had put in comment section. What to do as I have a lot of work in comment section and that **bleep** in not openkng up in different version. It sucks here!

@Ahsan135 The legacy comment feature has been changed to support threading, where you can include other people in a running dialog, similar to instant messages. In its place are Notes, which are the same as your original comments.

 

See: The difference between threaded comments and notes , and Insert comments and notes in Excel for more details.
