Hi All,

Following are the question:
I am using XSSF POI object. I have added comments in the excel generated. I donot understand how to modify comment box background color and comment box border using XSSF.

At times I am getting transparent comment box while at other time I am getting normal excel feature comment box using XSSF object. Please let me know how to resolve this.

Please respond at the earliest.

Can you provide some sample java code that shows the problem? Preferably as unit-test so it can be added to the test-suite for POI?

Closing due to no response in over a year.
Refer to the user guide how to create a cell comment in XSSF. With that code, I get the default yellow background in Excel.

Please take usage questions to the POI user mailing list.
