I have a data point and would like to attach a comment to it in the cell, similar to inserting a comment in a cell in an Excel spreadsheet. Is this possible?

Hi @acitretin,

What @ron_horne suggested is to use the label/unlabel option for the column to display values.

With it on you can display additional details as seen in the attached.

cheers,

Stan

Re: Is there a way to insert a comment in a cell?

You can add a color to a cell, or add a comment column:

You can also add a comment for an entire column and for an entire data table via the columnProperties->other or the data table's NewTableVariable.

In addition, one can use the comments column as a label for graphs. In which case it is possible to label just that row or as many rows you want.

Dear Ron,
