Selecting All Cells With Comments or Data Validation

Selecting All Cells With Comments or Data Validation
I previously posted this example of selecting only constants or formulas.
You can do the same with cells that contain comments or data validation.
Select the range of interest.
From your keyboard, press F5 to show the GoTo dialog box. Then click the Special button.
To select only cells with comments, select the Comments option in the GoTo Special dialog box, and click OK.
Here is an example of all comment-containing cells that are now selected.
To select all cells with data validation, in the GoTo Special dialog box, select the option for Data Validation, also select the option for All, and click OK.
Here is an example of all cells that are now selected which contain data validation. In column C, I validated the cells for only Male or Female to be entered. In column E, I validated the cells to be a date between January 1, 1930 and December 31, 1997.
