Description Craig Esterhuizen 2002-06-25 14:31:47 UTC
We need to be able to create cell comments using the API.  This can be done in 
Excel 2000 using Insert | Comment. We need to be able to do this using the API.
We are using jakarta-poi-1.5.0-dev-20020416-bin.zip.  I have looked in the 1.7 
version but there is no method on HSSFCell for this.

Comment 1 Avik Sengupta 2002-06-26 04:23:45 UTC
This is not yet suppported. Enhancement.
Comment 2 Bill Bohlman 2002-07-17 02:04:32 UTC
For that matter I have found no way read the comments though you can copy the
field and the comment follows.
Comment 3 Andy Oliver 2002-07-17 23:04:23 UTC
Folks might want to start voting for bugs.  Some of the ones that are low
priority for me I might fix if masses of people voted for them.  Otherwise its
quite honestly based on the 2.0 vision, my interests, my $business interests$
ones that got many votes might peak my interest.
Comment 4 Naga 2003-01-15 16:05:25 UTC
We need this very badly in our project.
Comment 5 Ted Halmrast 2004-06-10 19:57:30 UTC
I have a very strong need for this functionality as well.
Comment 6 Sondre Bjornebekk 2004-09-18 09:14:12 UTC
To us, reading comments in existing cells (created manually in excel) is more 
important than being able to insert new ones. I'm voting for this anyway.  Is 
support for comments scoped for a particular release?
Comment 7 Stefan Proels 2005-11-18 05:36:10 UTC
Has any progress been made regarding this feature? We urgently need the ability
to generate spreadsheets with comments.
Comment 8 Trejkaz (pen name) 2006-01-24 01:00:15 UTC
The ability to read the comments would definitely be a good start and we need
this in our project.
Comment 9 Hakan ERDOGAN 2006-07-19 09:25:57 UTC
I really need this feature, i think comments sould be supported.
Comment 10 bwoods 2006-09-18 15:46:15 UTC
This feature means the difference between POI being useful to us and not. 
Hopefully the ability to read/write/delete comments will become available soon.
Comment 11 Yegor Kozlov 2007-01-08 00:10:44 UTC
The feature is implemented. Enjoy.
