Adjust Cell Height To Fit Text


way to get Excel to automatically expand the cell height when the text becomes to long to display. Is there something I am missing that will accomplish this, or do I need to write some VBA that will make the cell larger once the character limit that will fit on one row is exceeded?

Adjust Userform Height Via SpinButton Linked To TextBox
I have a userform with a listbox set to a range of numbers from 1-10, I would like my userform to expand/collapse dependant on the number within the listbox. The problem I am having is the forms height does not adjust from using the toggle controls only when you select back into the listbox itself.

Private Sub ListBox1_Change()
If Me.ListBox1.Value = 1 Then
Me.Height = 180
End If
If Me.ListBox1.Value = 2 Then
Me.Height = 210
End If
If Me.ListBox1.Value = 3 Then
Me.Height = 240
End If
End Sub

I have tried using click/after change events however I get the same response. Am I missing something from my code or should I be using another control (SpinButton for instance).

Finding The Column With The MAX Height In Comparson Wth Othr Columns Of UNEVEN Height
Finding the Column with the MAX Height in comparison with other Columns of UNEVEN Height

I need two things :

1. I have several columns starting from Column B till Column F, each column having values starting from the third ROW.

Ex:-

Lets say Column B contains two values in B3 and B4, Col C three values in C3 C4 and C5, Col D four values D3,D4,D5 and D6, Col E two values in E3 and E4, Column F five values F3,F4,F5,F6 and F7.

So, the answer is F3:F7.

2.I am using 10^{4,3,2,1,0} in a particular portion of a formula, Now the number of elements in the array or in the Curly Braces depends on the number of Columns filled from Column B as explained in the Point 1.

Now, since I have five columns under consideration I have this order as mentioned here {4,3,2,1,0} , I would like to know whether I could make this dynamic, as in if there were only four columns then this would be {3,2,1,0} and if more this array could self-fill and expand..

If that's possible, then how do we use it in the formula, Is it by the virtue of the INDIRECT function?

Automatically Fit TextBox To Text
I have a textbox showing 7 lines of words.

When it is shown in my computer, everything looks fine.

When I use another computer, the lines in the textbox could be shown completely since the height of the textbox is not enough to show the whole text. I guess it is because the resolution of the screen is different.

How can I let the text be shown completely in a textbox even on different computers?

Create UserForm TextBox At Run-Time & Auto Size To Fit Text
I have a user form on which I need to create a textbox every time the user clicks a button. There are too many to create them all in advance and make them visible when needed. The sample attached, from this forum, is good, except, the numbers in the text box just scroll along and I need to see all the text typed into my textboxes. I would like the textboxes to be multiline, wordwrap and have them resize according to the amount of text.

AutoFit Row Height On A Merged Cell
I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. Itís visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

Using A Value To Adjust A Cell Reference
I have a spreadsheet set up for my son to roll up D&D characters. There's a combo box to select Race and another for Class of character. What I now need to do is automatically insert the correct set of racial and class bonuses into the relevant squares.

The Combo box points to a list of Races on Sheet 0, in cells A3 to A12. The cell reference for this returns a value between 1 and 10 depending on race selected, i.e. 'Dragonborn' yields a 1, and 'Tiefling' yields a 10. Cells H3 to H12 contain the Strength modifier for the different races.

When I select for example a Dragonborn (1) in the combo box, I want the Strength Modifier cell to pick up the value from cell H3, and if i change the selection to Tiefling (10) I want the strength modifier cell to pick up from (obviously) cell H12

How do I use a variable in the cell reference to adjust the cell data is retrieved from?

Copy/Paste Not Copying Cell Formatting (row Height)
I am having a problem with a excel spreadsheet. There are no formulas or anything, just text that I used excel to get everything lined up. I haven't had any issues before, I was copying and pasting within a document. It was all text with different row heights set. I ran into a problem now where the text copies and pastes fine but the row heights aren't coping into the cells I am pasting into, just the text. What do I have to do so they will copy? I don't want to have to go an individually adjust each cell.

Autosize Row Height
I have a spreadsheet in which double clicking on any of the cells in the range A4:C17 changes the contents of cells F4:I33. The following code tells me which is the active cell and then pulls the values for F4:I33 from a lookup table based in this.

Private Sub Worksheet_BeforeDoubleClick(ByVal Target As Range, Cancel As Boolean)
Range("B100") = ActiveCell.Address()
Cancel = True
End Sub

code to stick in this (probably after the third line) that autosizes rows 4 to 33. There are no merged cells involved.

Picture Width And Height Adjustment
I need to paste a picture from the Clipboard to my Worksheet. I select the origin and paste it with the macro.

I need to adjust that picture to fit in a defined space from left corner of Range($J$10) to the right corner of
Range($BJ$35)

Actually, i'm using this procedure

ActiveSheet.Unprotect
RANGE("graphique_PL").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste
Selection.ShapeRange.LockAspectRatio = msoFalse
Selection.ShapeRange.Height = 358.25
Selection.ShapeRange.Width = 725.

The problem with it is, the Height and Width is arbitrary to the size of the cells at the moment. I would like to had a procedure to calculate does value. They represent the distance between the defined cells location for the image. Actually, if cells width or height change, the picture is misplaced.

Formula To Calculate Row HEIGHT
I need a formula to calculate the height of a cell. Basically I will repeat this formula thoughtout the database, and each cell in column U will have its row height.

have come up with the following

Function RangeHeight(rng As Range) As Double
RangeHeight = rng.Height
End Function

Now, the problem is, that the formula does not automatically update when the row height changes, and when I open the file on another pc, all the formulas change to #NAME since it does not recognise the custom formula.

Row Height Specifically For Page Breaks
I have a spreadsheet that I use for work that I have set the row height specifically for page breaks. I use the top 3 rows on each page as a header with that page info.

If I update it at home, then email it to work, the row height has changed. No real problem, I just go in and adjust the row height. Then if I email it back to home from work, it does the same thing.

It's just this particular sheet that does it. All of the other sheets that I use always keep their row height properties intact when emailing.

VBA Can Keep Track Of Total Row Height?
I was wondering if VBA or Excel has the capability to add and total Row Height or Pixels? For example I have my Rows set to a height of 14.25 (19 pixels). My Range that I am working with is A2:T41 for a TOTAL ACCUMULATED ROW HEIGHT of 570 (40 Rows X 14.25) and 760 Pixels (40 X 19).

What I would like to accomplish is that once the TOTAL ACCUMULATED ROW HEIGHT of my Range reaches 570 then Row 1 appears. If the TOTAL is less then 570 then Row 1 remains Hidden.

Does anyone know IF and HOW this can be done? I need this due to the fact that the Rows will Autosize and I need to have my header Row appear. I can't just Freeze Row 1 because my actual Headers are on Row 16.

Hope this makes sense and hope that someone has a solution.

Bye 4 Now,
Mar

to apply a zoom to Fit Selection on all worksheets upon file opening? I've read many posts on this and understand how to apply this via worksheet activation, but haven't discovered how to make this to happen to all worksheets when the file is opened.

Zooming the selection needs to happen in the workbook module due to additional sheets being added at random and because it will facilitate the flow of the meeting so that we don't have to wait for the user to select and zoom.

Private Sub Workbook_Open()

Calculate Best Fit Equation Of Curve
I am trying to calculate the equation of a curve which best fits some data. On the x-axis is date and y-axis the readings. The curve is quadratic, so on the chart I am fitting a 2nd order polyomial and displaying the equation. To prove that the equation the trendline gives me is reasonable, I am applying the equation on the x parameter to get the y parameter estimate and looking to see the error between predicted and actual - see attached.

The equation and the output from it are clearly rubbish, even though on the graph the trendline is a reasonable fit - see attached. Has anyone any ideas why? I think it has something to do with using a date on the x-axis but no idea why. Is there a way to correct for this? I also tried using the following I to calculate the coefficients which came up with a reasonable forecast (although linest should only be used for linear data): =LINEST(C3:C15,B3:B15^{1,2,3})

Delete Rows That Fit Criteria
I have an excel 2007 file, which is quite big: ~10mb. There are situated plenty of columns with coordinates. I would like to transcribe it, modify those data, but it will take me ages. I'm not acquainted with macros, but I heard that people can do with them everything using computers' abilities. I'll abridge my whole problem.

I give you a sample of that file, so please open it. In the file you can see two 'columns'. Every column has two other columns called x and y. As you are thinking now these two columns are containing arguments (in x column) and their values (in column y). Every third column is empty. In attached file you see, that arguments are repeating and values are increasing by one. Sometimes there is an argument without repeats, and sometimes there are only two repeating arguments.

What I wanted to do is delete those repeating arguments leaving arguments with the highest and the lowest value. Example: Please look at range A230:B232. There are three repeating arguments and for this case I should delete row 231 from columns A&B and then move cells up to join separated columns. There are also not repeating arguments, which I need to double. If there will be only two repeating arguments I would like leave them. In the end I should have a clear view for all those coordinates.

Manipulate Chart Data Labels Height, Width....
I m working with bar charts and as I've heard these labels can be a bit of a pain. I've got the labels in roughly the right position 90% of the time however that other 10% has me in rolling fits.

My issues
1. A label within the chart area is wrapped on two lines, how could I restrict Excel from wrappign the label
2. A Labels position covers some of the data reported and thus makes the graph messy

how could I find the position of the end of the bar and also the length of the datalabel so I could reposition it. Note I am using 2003 and that I am trying to use

activeChart.seriesCollection(s).item(i).Datalabel.left

for finding the position although this is only really where im getting to. finding the wrapping position and also being able to manipulate the length of the label is proving tricky.
