Comment insertion macro


Walter Briscoe

I use Word 2003.
To insert a comment box, I select some text, click Insert\Comment, type
some text and move focus outside the box.
I recorded a macro to automate a box, containing "Full stop?"
with instructions
Selection.Comments.Add Range:=Selection.Range
Selection.TypeText Text:="Full stop?"

when I ran that macro, it also opened another window containing a list
of all the comments in the current document.
I added a line to close that window:

When investigating the behavior, I found
Selection.Comments.Add Range:=Selection.Range, Text:="Full stop?"
does not open the additional window.

Why are the behaviors different?

The loss of Google Groups search facilities means I was unable to
reearch the question as I would have liked and others will have
difficulty finding this thread. ;(
