This is a basic code to add comments to cell A1 in Sheet1. Please amend it for realistic situations.

On Error Resume Next
Sheets("Sheet1").Range("A1").Comment.Delete
On Error GoTo 0
Sheets("Sheet1").AddComment Text:="Blah Blah"

Open in new window

The attached spreadsheet is an inventory snapshot  that has been classified as Surplus, Excess, and Overstock.  

1) I need to review the items on hand (across all locations) and identify the following:
a. What items can be sold, scrapped, or kept as critical spares  

I need to know the best way to enter my comments.

Thanks
