- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 years agoHi,
I use this macro to check old values in a range of cell. How can add comments to existing comments with a text.
eg - first value is 1000. then I run the macro is must come as "was 1000" in comments.
now I have changed value to 900.
Next time I run the macro on same cell or cells it must show as
now changed value to 800.
so when I check cell comments I can see value actually dropped from 1000 to 900 and currently it is 800.

1.> I need each row for Col A1(for ID# i.e. A1, A2..A25) as progressive addition when every time new row is entered. If , I'm entering new row after A20 then next row should have ID# as A21. It should always insert the row below last used row.
2.> Similarily, I need to add in progressive hyperlink cell value in the column "H1" onward.
Is this possible, If yes, please advise.
