Can't Edit Worksheet Comments


P

Paul Calcagno

I'm running Vista Home Premium SP2, 2 GB RAM, Firefox, Spyware Doctor, MBAM,
SAS and CCleaner, Office 2007.

All of a sudden only one (of many) worksheets inside one particular (xlsx)
Excel file will not allow me to edit the comments in any of the cells where
the comments exist. When I right click the cell and select `Edit Comment'
(which is not greyed out) nothing happens. If I try this on any other xlsx
files I have or any other xls files, comment editing works fine. I tried the
help manual and a reboot to no avail.
I've been using/modifying this file for years. It contains tons of comments
that need updating all the time. Comment editing on any other xlsx files, or
in any cells on any other worksheet within this file or other files is
allowed just fine.
This file (and some of the other worksheets in it) has links that I
routinely enable. Would this somehow be causing this problem? My other xlsx
and xls files also have links but I have no problem editing comments in
those files. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I thought of doing a reboot and then selecting `Last Known Good
Configuration' but don't want to dump anything I may have downloaded.


Thanks.......Paul C.
