There's not much detail in your question, but if you're asking how add-ins get their title and comments in the add-ins list in Excel, the Title property of the add-in workbook appears in the add-in list, and the comments are in the Comments property of the workbook.

There are various ways to set these depending on your Excel version and your Windows version, but generally you can use the properties dialog in Excel, or right click on the add-in in Windows Explorer, select Properties, then Details tab, and change the Title and Comments properties. If you don't know how to do this in Excel, tell me your Excel version and I can tell you how to get to the dialog - it varies wildly between 20003, 2007 and 2010/13

Perfect.... I was looking in the Code Editor and couldn't find where to set those properties... Never thought to look at sheet properties as they are hidden when the XLA is active....

Thanks!
