Comments are an invaluable tool for people that often work in teams on their Excel spreadsheets. It allows a conversation to occur concerning the data in your cells, and doesn’t require you to use an additional program or application to communicate ideas. But comments don’t print with your spreadsheets by default, which can make it difficult to cooperate on a project that involves printing your Excel files.
But it is possible to print comments in Excel 2013, and you have the option of including those comments where they occur in the spreadsheet, or as one big list at the end of the spreadsheet. Our guide below will show you how to start printing your Excel comments today by following a short series of steps.
