Excel 2013 - Dynamic Comment Box

Does anyone know if it is possible to have dynamic comment boxes in excel?  I'm looking to have a comment box that is linked to the value of a particular cell in excel.  If the cell value changes, when you hover over the comment box it would display the updated cell content.

I've attached a spreadsheet showing what I'm trying to do.

If you are willing to use VBA.

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("H2:I2")) Is Nothing Then
    Range("G6").ClearComments
    Range("G6").AddComment CStr(Range("J2").Value)
End If
End Sub

I don't mind using VBA, I have 7 cells on the page that I will need to potentially update the comments and currently I modified what you provided to code below.

The contents in B24:H24 are vlookups and it doens't appear that the code to update the comments is called unless I physically go into one of the cells in B24:H24 and click enter.  It there a way to tweak this so if the value changes in B24:H24 it will trigger the comment to update automatically without going into the cell and hitting enter?

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
If Not Intersect(Target, Range("B24:H24")) Is Nothing Then
    Range("B24").ClearComments
    Range("B24").AddComment CStr(Range("B28").Value)
    Range("C24").ClearComments
    Range("C24").AddComment CStr(Range("C28").Value)
    Range("D24").ClearComments
    Range("D24").AddComment CStr(Range("D28").Value)
    Range("E24").ClearComments
    Range("E24").AddComment CStr(Range("E28").Value)
    Range("F24").ClearComments
    Range("F24").AddComment CStr(Range("F28").Value)
    Range("G24").ClearComments
    Range("G24").AddComment CStr(Range("G28").Value)
    Range("H24").ClearComments
    Range("H24").AddComment CStr(Range("H28").Value)
End If

End Sub

Thank you,

You should only have to select a different cell, but you have to do something to let Excel know that your done making the change. If Excel were to react to changes in real-time and you entered "Test" into a cell it would run the Change event 4 time.
