I'm looking for a Lotus 123 equivalent feature in Excel.

In 123 I could enter into a cell:

+23+10;and some notes here

and the cell would evaluate to a value of 33, and the notes would be in view in the edit box when one selected the cell.

(The Excel cell note feature is not what I am looking for, wonderful though it is.)

thanks for your interest.

The N() function allows you add comments directly inside your cells on your formulas. To use the function to add a comment, simply add a plus sign (+) to the end of your formula, and then enter some text in quotes inside the parentheses, passing that text to the N() function.

jsdray,

N() is the correct/best way to do this task... and it is available in previous versions also, not just 2013
