i want to programmatically read a cell comment (in VB)

to write the comment, i can do, for example:
Range("A1").Comment.TEXT TEXT:="user:" & Chr(10) & "some words"

but there doesn't seem to be anything to read it back.

Hi,

This will assign the variable to 'a' and then display it in a message box....

Sub hello()
    Dim XL As New Excel.Application
    Dim wbk As Workbook
    Dim a As String
    Set wbk = XL.Workbooks.Add
    Range("A1").AddComment "Hello"
    a = Range("A1").Comment.Text
    MsgBox a
    Set wbk = Nothing
    Set XL = Nothing
End Sub


Hope this helps
