I can get the first example to work.

Sub MakeComment()
    With Worksheets(1).Range("A2").AddComment
        .Visible = True
        .Text [F2].Value
    End With
End Sub



I am having a problem with this one which would loop.  i would like to populate comments in  A2 to  A7 with the values in F2 to F7.  How would I code below to do that.


   Sub ValueToComment()
    Dim rCell As Range
    For Each rCell In Selection
        With rCell
            If .HasFormula Then
                On Error Resume Next
                .Comment.Delete
                On Error GoTo 0
                .AddComment
                .Comment.Text Text:=CStr(rCell.Value)
            End If
        End With
    Next
    Set rCell = Nothing
End Sub
