Word Processor sheet in a workbook
I often have to include extensive notes, or an introduction to explain the use or purpose of a spreadsheet.
It would be good if there was a type of worksheet that could be inserted that was basically just a Word document.
Insert a text box. Text boxes support word wrapping and text formatting. I will often draw a rectangle, and add text to it. Writing on shapes is good because you can have more than one on a sheet. You can also draw arrows from the text box to cells to point things out.
Although it might be cool to add more word processor features to the text boxes, such as bullet lists, auto-number lists, tab controlling, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd level headers, styles, etc.

This would be so helpful for accountants preparing financial reports. Financial reports are mostly number, but often have a large amount of text, that is terrible to maintain in an Excel worksheet.
