Default Adding Cell Comments

Context: Word 2003 Tables

How can I insert comments in a table cell that behave like cell comments in
Excel? (i.e.; The little yellow message pop-ups when you hover over the
cell)

I can't find a Word help topic that explains this.

Thank you
Jim

There is no such thing in Word. You can insert a comment in a table
cell by using the Insert Comment command, but it doesn't behave much
like Excel's comments.

Default Adding Cell Comments

Well, I currently have a word table that has some of those comments in the
table heading and they work just like they do in Excel. I'm just trying to
add some more of them and I can't fiigure out how it is done.
I've attached a sample document for your pleasure. To see the effect, hover
in the column heading for Actor, etc.

Cheers.

Default Adding Cell Comments

What you are seeing are footnotes. Look at the bottom of the table; the
footnotes are there.

Default Adding Cell Comments

In the file you attached, the "comments" are really endnotes (like
footnotes, but collected at the end of the document). Notice that each
one has a superscript number, which is the connection between the
location you see and the text of the endnote.

You insert a new one by placing the cursor at the end of the table
cell (or anywhere else in the document), clicking Insert Reference
Footnote, and choosing the Endnote option button. When you click OK,
the cursor jumps to the end of the document, where you can type the
text of the endnote. To return to the table, double-click the
superscript number at the beginning of the endnote text.

To hide the fact that the endnote text is really at the end of the
document, you can modify the Endnote Text style to make the font color
white. The text that appears when you hover over the column heading
will still be black on yellow. To be able to see the endnote text
while you're typing it, apply a dark-colored highlight to it.

Thanks folks!
Sometimes I get stumped by the simplest things expecting more complex
things.
Duh!
