This article was previously published under Q171894


SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Excel 97, when you open a workbook, some of the formatting that is applied to a cell comment in the workbook is lost.

CAUSE

This problem occurs if you share the workbook by clicking Share Workbook on the Tools menu and selecting the check box in the Editing tab of the Share Workbook dialog box.

If the workbook is shared and you save and close the workbook, certain kinds of formatting that is applied to comments are not retained.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.

MORE INFORMATION

In Microsoft Excel 97, you can apply many kinds of formatting to text in a cell comment. However, when you share a workbook, only bold and italic comment formatting is retained. When you save and close a shared workbook, all of the following formatting is lost:

   Font
   Font Size
   Font Color
   Underline
   Double Underline
   Strikethrough
   Superscript
   Subscript
                

If you unshare the workbook, all comment formatting is retained when you save and close the workbook.
