Excel 2010: Creating a small 'PIP' within a Cell

Hello Experts,

     I'm curious, is it possible to add a small square (like a PIP (picture within a picture...or in this case a square i can add a number to within the cell itself?  I need to read columns in a particular order and thought if I could add a number to each cell, reading the columns as they should be read would be easier to do.  Thank you.

Will there be anything else in the cell?

Would a comment work for you?

Code could also be added to go to, say, cell C1 after leaving another cell like A1.
You could use conditional formatting to highlight the cells in sequence...

I have mocked up a simple example of how this could work for filling in information (attached).
You could use conditional formatting to highlight the next cell in reading sequence.

If you like the method we can help set it up.
