Excel UDF : Copy cell comment into another cell

Suppose you want to copy cell comment into another cell. As comment changes, value in another cell also changes automatically. There is no such excel function which copies the comment into another cell. I developed a user defined function (UDF) that takes a comment cell reference and return its text.

How to Use :
1. Press ALT + F11 to open Visual Basic Editor
2. In visual basic editor window, Go to Insert >> Module
3. In module, add the above lines of code.
4. In main excel window, type =Getcomment(cell_reference)

Example :
A cell comment is in cell B2 . In cell F2, type =Getcomment(B2).
