We are exporting Kendo grid content to Excel files. We’re really impressed with how well it works and how easy it is to use. Unfortunately, it is missing one feature that is critical for us. We need to be able to set cell comments in the exported Excel file. I posted the “idea” below to the Telerik site. I think this would only be a few lines of code for Telerik to implement. Our schedule is really tight – we’d really appreciate any help we can get - even if it is just guidance on how we could hack Kendo JavaScript to make it work (as a short-term solution).

This is the 'idea' that I posted: Add support for exporting cell comments to Excel

I'm going to explain this in a number of different ways just to help clarify what I'm asking for: 1) When exporting Kendo grid to Excel, add support for setting the cell comments. 2) Please add support for a "comment" property to sheets.rows.cells. The value of the "comment" property would be used to set the cell comment in the generated Excel file. 3) In the link below, there is support for sheets.rows.cells.format. Add a similar property named sheets.rows.cells.comment that is used to set the cell comment in the exported Excel file. http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/api/javascript/ooxml/workbook.html
