inserting text excel

Richard Teasdale
Last Modified: 2012-06-27
In excel I have a comments field.
There are a range of comments I can put in but for example the logic is as follows:
"if cell a2 > 0 then comment is "urgent"". This applies to every cell in column a, down to a200.
Because the comment cell is also used for typed text then any formula will be overwritten.
So I need somehow to be able to click a button and excel will scroll down the comment column, inserting  the appropriate text where the criteria is met.
Is this possible?
