        Dear Thang Ta,

        Thanks for your reply.In fact,the link that I gave you above already includes the instructions of how to make the comments to be displayed in converted document. Here I would like to sum up the steps for you again. Please do the following procedures:
        1. Open your excel document,click on the Review tab, in the Comments group, click Show All Comments.
        2:Click on the Page Layout tab, in the Page Setup group, click the dialog box launcher Button image next to Page Setup to open "Page setup"window.
        3:On the Sheet tab in page setup window, in the Comments box, click "As displayed on sheet">click"OK"to save the setting.
        Finally,please print the opened excel file with Foxit PhantomPDF printer into a PDF document or click on "Foxit PDF"tab>"Create PDF" in excel file to convert it into PDF file.

          Dear Lisa,

          Tks for your reply, but after i did these steps the result only show the comments in pdf file (not convert to notes in pdf file). In attached file, there are 3 pictures (excel_comments.jpg, pdf_comments_actual_result.jpg, pdf_notes_desired_result.jpg).Can you give me different way ?

            Dear ThangTa,I thought you just need to make the comments in excel document to be also included in the converted PDF file,that is the reason why I gave you those instructions. I am sorry that there is not any way to convert the comments in excel into notes in PDF file during conversion.
            You may choose to create a PDF file without including the comments from excel file,then manually add notes into PDF file by using the "Note"tool under "Comment"menu in Foxit Software.
