Excel 2013 - Want comment box to open automatically depending on a condition

Attached is a file where the user wants a comment box to automatically open if the "NO" radio button is selected from a cell. I'm assuming it can be done with code, but don't know how. This file is super slow in loading - not sure why, as I did not design it. Can someone help?

First of all when you open the Data sheet it has lots of REF error in formulas this may be a reason for the slowness but it is not slow in here.

Noticed you have over a zillion and one Option button in this sheet major reason for the slow down as they have been copied and recopied and they are laying on top of each others.

I will work to fix all this and revert.

Ya I know this workbook is a mess. This is only a portion of the original. So don't spend a ton of time on it unless it will be easy enough to incorporate the changes into the original. Not sure who created this monster.

ok I have no clue what is the use of this but here it is. I am not at all convinced but here it is. The problem with this file is that the option button chosen are of Form type and they do not have events to capture when they are clicked the only way to activate their status is in selecting a cell other then the active cell.

So here is how it works.

Go and click as many as No as you want and N/a and Yes ... when you are done simply click on any cell in Col A and the macro will run for a While ... (as you have zillions of these option buttons (I encountered a figure of 11359 but sure there are more ..) and when it is done all the No that are chosen will have a Comment with Red and all the rest will not have a comment.

The problem:
As you can see the original file had the Columns very stuck to each other in a way that you cannot see the red triangle indicating a comment so I spaced them a bit but still this is not enough as you cannot click on the red triangle to see the comment you need to get the Column wider.

Anyway pls check your source as why this is needed so we can propose something more descent !

Okay gowflow - thanks for looking at this. I probably didn't make myself very clear, as the user actually wants the comment box to come up AS they choose No, so they can make a comment right away as to why they chose No. I'm not going to have anyone spend any more time on this, because it is a mess, and it does need to be set up more appropriately - probably in a database actually.
