    Inserting a comment/text box to a picture (excel 2007)

    I'm trying to attach comment/text boxes to pictures or shapes on excel, so it pops up when you click on the picture (like it does when a comment box is attached to a cell).

    I need to attach it to the picture not the cell, so it will move with the picture.

    I would be very very grateful if any one knows how to do this and wouldn't mind sharing their knowledge with me

    You will need to write VBA to have a shape/picture display extra commentary.

    See attached.

    Thanks for sending that Andy!

    I'm having a few problems opening the document though.

    When I open the document i get the following messeage:

    846198[1].xlsm is locked for editing by 'another user'

    So I choose 'read only' to open the document, then when I click on the shape, I get the following message:

    Cannot run the macro "C:\Documents and Settings\lingard\Local Settings\Temporary Internet
    Files\Content.IE5\I2AGCPQI\846198[1].xlsm'DisplayExtraComment'. The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled.

    I have checked, and I have all macros enabled under macro security.

    Do you know what the problem might be?
    Apologies for my lack of knowledge, it's probably something simple!?

    Thanks

    Louis

    Start by saving the attachement to a folder and then opening it in excel.
