G'day everyone

I'm adding comments to an Excel file using Excel 2007, and every time I right-click a cell and add a comment, Excel scrolls the sheet to the right so that the cell I'm commenting on is no longer visible. Quite annoying -- this means I have to scroll to the left again every time I start writing a comment. Does anyone know how to stop Excel 2007 from doing that (i.e. not scroll to a different position in the sheet simply because I'm adding a comment to a cell)? There is no reason for Excel to scroll here -- there is enough room on the screen for the comment box without scrolling the sheet.
