In Microsoft Excel 97, if a worksheet cell containing a comment is located above a frozen pane, the comment may appear partially obscured or truncated at the border of the frozen pane.
Comments in Excel 97 are on sheet objects, and behave like other objects on the worksheet when you scroll the document. In the frozen pane, Excel only displays the portion of the comment that would normally appear in that part of the worksheet if the pane were not frozen.
To prevent this behavior, click Unfreeze Panes on the Window menu, or select a row underneath the comment before clicking the Freeze Panes command.
This behavior is by design of Excel 97.
For more information about comments, click the Index tab in Microsoft Excel Help, type the following text
and then double-click the selected text to go to the "displaying" topic.
