I'm finding some way to make Excel comment box auto-size when I add a lot of text into it.
Some tries with Google and I've got this from Ozgrid but it doesn't work on my Excel 2010. Please help me some idea to make it work! Thanks!

Sub robot_comment() 

    ' robot_comment Macro 
    ' Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+R 

    Dim objComment As Comment 

    Set objComment = ActiveCell.AddComment 
    With objComment 
        .Visible = False 
        .Text Text:="robot" 
        .Shape.TextFrame.AutoSize = True 
    End With 
End Sub

  • What does "doesn't work" mean in your case? Do the comments get created at all?

    Just to check: you did specify the keyboard shortcut Ctrl+Shift+R to call this macro? Because it's not sufficient to paste this code in the editor - the shortcut needs to be set in another menu.

Keyboard shortcuts must be defined in the macro creation screen, not in the macro comments.
