cell content into a note

hey guys,

just curious if this can be achieved or how it can be achieved

say i have this

Column A Row 1 = Short Description
Column B Row 1 = Long descriptoin

B2:B10 = are all the short descriptions
B2:B10 = are all the long descriptions

is there a way to just put the comment into the short description
cells from the long description cells via a note and then hide the
long description column?

can anyone advise as to how this can be achieved?

You could add Comments to the column A cells with the text from Column B cells
and have Column B hidden.

Sub Comment_Text_Add()

    Dim addtext As String
    Dim cmt As Comment
  For Each Cell In Range("A1:A10")  'or Selection
  Set cmt = Cell.Comment
  addtext = Cell.Offset(0, 1).Value
    If cmt Is Nothing Then
      Set cmt = Cell.AddComment
      cmt.Text Text:=addtext
      cmt.Text Text:=addtext
    End If
    With cmt.Shape.TextFrame
      .Characters.Font.Bold = False
    End With
Next Cell
End Sub

Changing Cell Colour in Protected Sheet
Hi, I'm trying to protect some cells on a spreadsheet from having their formulae deleted accidently etc. The only problem is I run a VBA program ontop of the spreadsheet that consists of a load of forms. The inputs into these forms add data to the cells on the spreadsheet and it all works well until I protect the sheet. The reason being is that I use some VB code to change the colour of a cell.

Fill a Cell
Using Excel 2000. I have forgotten the data entry syntax for filling the width of a cell with a particular character. For example, if I want to fill a cell from left edge to right edge with a hyphen (-), what is the syntax? Seems to me that in older versions I was able to use a slash or backslash followed by the character and it would fill the width of the cell.

How to place a colored rectangle BEHIND some data cells?
I have various cells in use but I want a graduated colored background behind all of them. If I use a colored rectangle, it covers them. Can I move the rectangle to the back, so it only shows where no data cells are in use? Don't think that's possible since it floats above the cells. Perhaps an alternative way to get the visual that you're after (in xl2003): Select and copy the cell(s). Hold down Shift key, click Edit > paste picture link. This creates a linked picture object that can be formatted with graduated fills. Right click on the linked picture object > Form...

Calculations within summary cells, reflecting the visble cells only after filtering
Hi Wonder if someone can tell me whether it is possible to have calculations reflecting only the data of visible cells following a filtering exercise. For example, the columns below show data corresponsing to specific individuals (the name of the individual, initial, first date of absence, last date of absence, no of days absent and certification type). Below this data range is a cell with today's date and a cell with the date 12 months previous to this date. There is also a cell which reflects the total no of absence periods within this data range (20) - see calculation below. Would l...

Cell formatting #3
Hello people, When I open a .csv (comma seperated values) file with EXCEL, I would like EXCEL to open all data as text data. This is a requirement for me because some data I wish to display to the user begins with a - or = so EXCEL automatically treats this data as an equation. This wouldn't be a problem, except EXCEL allows a much lower number of characters to be entered into an equation than into a text cell. Therefore, the text in some of the cells that are being treated as equations is truncated when I open the .csv file. Does anybody know an EXCEL option I can change so that it t...
