I've tried to use this but it's replacing the entire contents of the cell with the replacment value, even in the cell doesn;'t contain what it's looking for. How can this be fixed?

@excel now there ist a difference between comments and notes. Notes are converted properly. comments not. are you working on a solution?

I would like to change the text in "selected" cells instead of changing the comments in the active sheet or workbook. Is there a solution for this operation?
