You didn't post the correct workbook. The one you posted doesn't have the "Windows" button.

This works by adding a "memo" as a comment in a cell in column "C". Click cell C35 to see it work. I suggest you set your Display options like they are in the picture.

Adding the date isn't hard but we have a small problem. If you click on C35 (or any cell in column "C" and then update what's in the memo on Sheet1, clicking on C35 again will write over the updated text in the memo. I'll see what I can do about that.

As it turns out adding a date is hard, but when you click the new "Edit" button under the memo box, if a date isn't there it will add one. Give the new button a try and let me know if you have any questions or problems.

It looks good Marty, Can i get it that when i click on the button where it generates the date on the Memo box.

---Have it on the top of the Memo box skipping previous date and having a blank line in between previous and new information that will be input.

OK. i also removed some of the old code annotations (like '******* 28979574 Start *******) because while they are very useful, they get in the way if there are too many. This included adding a module called modChanges.
