Auto Stretch Text Evenly Across Merged Cells?

Dec 28, 2013

I am using a staff schedule spreadsheet and have each column displaying text of where a staff person is assigned.

Instead of displaying the word "lunch" separately across several columns, is it possible to merge several columns and have the word "lunch" automatically stretched evenly across the several merged columns?

I dont want it to be centered but to literally be stretched to fit evenly across all of the merged cells.

Auto Resizing Inserted Pictures To Fit Merged Cells?

Jan 31, 2013

Ive been trying to find a way of inserting a picture into a defined merged cell. Once I insert the pic I would like it to auto size/fit into the merged cells.

I have only managed to do this by either resizing the pic's first, or running a retro macro to resize the image. Just wondering if there was an easier way?

Wrap Text In Merged Cells Macro

Feb 11, 2009

want to merge cells!

I have several columns "A" thru "J" with simple contents, part#, qty, date, etc. and in column "K" descriptive text which can run several sentences long.

I'm trying to record a macro to insert a row, merge "A" thru "J" in that new row, cut the text from the "K" cell in the row above and select wrap text so it shows up below those headings so my user can read it.

Would look like:

I can get it to look like that if I grab the row borders and drag it to fit, but can I get it to increase row height and wrap to fit the text length automatically with the macro?

Code looks like this so far:

Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+M

Dialog box pops up "This operation will cause some merged cells to unmerge.

I'm going to have a shortcut key in the macro to do this one row at a time, as the data isn't that extensive, but I don't want to have to drag all the row heights.

Autofit Merged Cells With Wrap Text

Aug 6, 2007

I found referred to writing a vba code such as the one below:

Sub Format()
Rows(x).entirerow.autofit
End Sub

I have tried a vba code such as the one above but the issue persists.

I have a worksheet with merged cells [horizontal]; each cell is also formatted to warp text.

The issue is that the row size or cell size [vertical] does not adjust when the user types more text than what the cell size can handle.

Wrap Text In Merged Cells In Protected Document

Jan 20, 2003

I understand that the wrap text feature doesn't work if you are merging cells.

I have a document that users will be able to input certain cells but not others...the document needs to be protected so they can't change formulas etc.

Auto-Merge Dates In 3 Columns And Then Auto-sort Merged Columns

Jan 10, 2012

I have dates values in 3 columns.

A1 - Header - "Holidays in XXXX'
B1 - Header - "Holidays in YYYY'
C1 - Header - "Leaves by YOU"

A2:B11 have static dates consisting of 10 dates in each column.
C2:C11 - the user may enter any date at any point of time.

I would like to auto-merge the dates in all the 3 columns (A2:C11) in a single column say D2:D31 and then the system should auto-sort the column based on dates in any one order. So as soon as the user enters a value in say cell C2, all the 10+10+1 dates should get sorted.

Also the constraint here is a user may not apply all 10 leaves at in a year. So many of the cells may have blank values.

Formula To Return Multiple Criteria Including Stretch Target

Jul 8, 2014

I'm struggling to come up with a formula that ill give me the following:

I have will have a row of data (cells A4:H4 on the attached example), in the respective cells below each value in row 4 I want formula that will give me a value of 10 if it sees 90% in the cell above reducing to a value of 0 if it sees 80% in the cell above. I think that there should be a relatively straightforward formulae for that, my problem is that I want to add a further criteria that says; if the value in row 4 increases above 90% and reaches 95% then I must return a value that is 10 for 90% but "stretches" to 12 for 95%. Anything below 80% should return a value of 0, and anything over 95% should return a value of 12.

Clear Contents Of All Unlocked Cells (many Are Merged Cells

May 28, 2009

I am looking for a code that will clear all of my unlocked cell in sheet 1. That is not a problem but since many of the cells are merged I know it keeps throwing me an error saying cannot change contents of merged cells or something like that. Does anyone know how to get around this without unmerging the cells. I saw a code to unmerge all of the cells on a sheet but I really don't want to do this as I already have worked around most of my problems with the merged cells.

Sorting Cells That Have Merged And Unmerged Cells

Oct 21, 2013

Im having problems trying to sort through data and linking certain data. I will post example below:

Main 1
Main 2
Main
3
Sublevel 1-4

[Code]....

This is just one part of a row of the workbook but shows the Main data which is made up of 4 different sub levels on the right. I merged 4 cells for the main data so that all the cells lined up but I'm still having problems with being able to sort and link the files together so that when I filter, they all do it together. The example didn't paste well.

Cut Paste Merged Cells.

Aug 12, 2009

I now see why alot of you dont like merged cell's. What i am trying to do is Cut and paste a range that contains merged cells. A kit can be created using the Button on the sheet. The cells in column G are merged down to the last kit item. On Row A of the kit the 1st cell contains data validation once the Delete kit cell is re-entered it removes the selected kit from the sheet. Then will select all kits below the (now deleated one) and cut the range, and paste it to where the old kit was located.

When the kit's are pasted into the new location there are issues with the merged cells in column G. Is there a way to fix this issue, or know of another approach to keeping the same layout.

Filtering Across Merged Cells?

Feb 13, 2012

I have exported a report to Excel from a BI tool called ZAP.

Unfortunately the cells in the columns are merged by group eg. salesperson, product, country.

I need to be able to filter by each of the columns - the only way i can think of is to unmerge and copy the information to the rest of the "merge area".

This will be extremely time consuming as there are more than 1000 rows and at least 5 columns that I want to filter.

Reading Into Merged Cells

May 15, 2007

I have a table where sometimes cells are merged. To the right they are not merged, but I need to link to the value of the merged cell. How can I do it if I don't want to do it manually?

Example:
Say A1:A4 is merged, A5 is just normal. I want a formula using those values, say in B1:B5. Now just filling down the formula would reference A1, A2 and so forth. This is wrong.

Alternative To Merged Cells

Jul 22, 2009

I have a workbook in Excel 2007 where I am creating a summation worksheet through the use of arrays which sumif and countif the other worksheets. Things went fine until about halfway through when I started getting merged cell errors. In between the calculations, I had some merged cell rows for section titles. I was not entering the array into them, but researched the error and unprotected the cells. Problem solved. Now, with 10 row to go, I started getting the error again. I unmerged the sectional title rows. I verified that the cells are not protected. However, when I ctrl+shift+enter to input the array, my formula is moving from the cell that I am inputting to, to the cell in the row directly beneath it.

Unmerge Merged Cells

Jun 14, 2008

I have read the posts regarding merged cells and understand they should be avoided, but I am working with spreadsheets created by others. My problem is that I need to sort the data, but some of the cells are merged so it won't work. Is there a macro command to easily find the merged cells and unmerge them?
