Annotating with Text Boxes in Excel 2007

Text boxes in Excel 2007 are graphical boxes that you can use to add explanatory text or commentary to a worksheet or chart. Text boxes can be positioned wherever you like and can be formatted to match the chart or worksheet data that they accompany.

1

On the Insert tab, click the Text Box button in the Text group.

The mouse pointer looks like an upside-down cross.

2

Click and drag diagonally on the worksheet (or in a chart) to draw the box the size you want.

A blinking cursor appears inside the text box.

3

Type the desired text.

The text wraps when you reach the right side of the box. Press Enter as you type if you want to begin a new line.

4

Click outside the text box to deselect it.

The selection handles disappear and the text box contains the typed text.
