AutoFit Row Height On A Merged Cell

May 27, 2009

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.

VBA To Autofit Row Height With A Minimum

Jul 10, 2009

I have a range named "rngOrders" on an Excel 2003 worksheet. I'm looking for a VBA macro that will set the row heights of the range to autofit (for rows/cells with wrapped text) and also set a minimum row height of 19.5 points for all rows.

Autofit Merged Cells From Pdfs

Dec 3, 2009

I've just created a spreadsheet that we will be using as a project review form. In this spreadsheet I have multiple rows of merged cells, column D to N, for comments. I need these comment areas, merged rows, to autofit whatever is cut and pasted or typed into them.

The first problem is cutting and pasting from a pdf. All of the documents we received for the projects we bid are in pdf format. We often cut and paste from those documents into an older version of our review sheet that was built in Word. Trying to cut and paste the same information into Excel ends up in failure. Is there a way that this can be done without jumping through hoops?

The second problem Iím running into is when I cut and paste into a comment area I get the typical Excel error message that the information being pasted does not fit the area it is being pasted into. It there a workaround for this?

My third problem is autofitting the pasted information into the merged cells. Iíve seen some VBA and tried a couple but they donít work automatically when the comments area is filled. How can I do this? I donít know VBA. I'm using MS Office 2003

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.

Finding The Column With The MAX Height In Comparson Wth Othr Columns Of UNEVEN Height

Feb 24, 2009

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?

Autofit Only Current Cell Column To That Cell Width

Dec 15, 2011

When I'm moving around in an Excel sheet, I want to have a keyboard shortcut that Autofits only the column I am "in", and only to the width of the cell I'm "in". So I can arrow-key into a cell, hit ctrl-shift-W or whatever, and the column will autofit.

I try Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFit but that's not what I want, it autofits every column. Sometimes this is not appropriate and I want to do it manually for the columns I want auto-fit.

I guess the more general question is how do I write VBA code for the column I am in and not every column or a specific column - not Columns("A:I") or whatever, it's going to be a different column every time depending on what cell I'm editing.

AutoFit Size Of Comment Box Of Selected Cell(s) To Its Content

Jan 18, 2014

I am wondering within the Excel interface, is it possible to auto-fit the size of a comment box to its content?

I have searched the internet and found that a macro as follows could do the job:

Sub FitComments()
Dim c As Comment
For Each c In ActiveSheet.Comments
c.Shape.TextFrame.AutoSize = True
Next c
End Sub

However, this Macro applies to and resize all of the the comment boxes in the active sheet.

I would like to just auto-fit the comment box only to the selected cell, or even better, to multiple selected cells.

Autofit Problems With A Row That Includes A Formula Referencing Another Cell

Jun 14, 2006

I have a document that I created that has merged cells. In order to autofit the rows of this document, I referenced the merged cells in singular cells that are not visible to the users of the document. (They are not hidden)

It had been working relatively nicely, but now the autofit function is not working correctly. If I copy and paste values into the cell it will work, but this would not be my ideal solution. I have tried playing with the number format, which works for the most part if I set it to "&" - text. It doesn't work for some longer cells with line breaks in them.

Set Row Height To Cell Value?

Mar 16, 2014

Situation. In a Sheet1:

- each cell in row 1 represents the width of its column (i.e., if D1=3, the width of column D should equal 3),

- each cell in column A represents the height of its row (i.e., if A4=5, the height of row 4 should equal 5).

Question1. I need the widths and heights to adjust automatically every time, when values of corresponding cells change. How could that be accomplished?

Question2. I read that the width/height are measured by number of characters (i.e., if width=3, it means that 3 '0' characters of normal format can fit in that space). Will the values with fractions work correctly (i.e. will width=3.5 correspond to 3.5 '0' characters)?
If no, how to adjust for that?

Note. In the current situation, additional rows and colums will have to be inserted, so the solution should work with new rows and columns as well.

Copy/Paste Not Copying Cell Formatting (row Height)

Jun 29, 2007

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.

Reference Merged Cell Value

May 10, 2009

The issue that I am having is with merged cell data. What I am trying to do is check the value of the merged cell against a selection from an array and place the value into a cell.

What apparently occurs is that if the row that I am on is an even number (being as my rows start on an odd number); the reference returns empty. I have tested to confirm that this only affects even numbered rows. My spread sheet has a 2 row merged cell in column 2, and the cell I am referencing from is on the second row of that merged cell.

How To Filter Merged Cell

Dec 19, 2013

I am working on an FMEA and have a slight issue.

I have a number of merged cells in Column B.

I have merged 30 rows of column B to one Failure mode let's say 'Gaps'.

In column C there are 30 individual items relating to gaps.

When I want to filter column B to look at Gaps, it only returns the first row of the merged cells. So instead of getting the entire merged cells as a result of my filter, I get 1 row.

I hope this is clear. My question is, is there a method of filtering so that the whole merged cell is returned?

Watermarks Considered As Merged Cell?

Mar 14, 2014

How to add a watermark to the sheet on each tab. Now when the script is called it stops and give the following errors:

Run-time error '1004': cannot change part of a merged cell.

I searched for merged cells in the document and as far as the script is concerned there are none, other than maybe this new watermark.

So, does VBA or scripting think that a watermark is a merged cell?

Any workaround if it does think of it as being merged?

Here is the current script we are using:

Unmerge Merged Cell And Put Value In All Cells

Nov 6, 2008

Is there any quick and easy way to unmerge merged cells and put the merged cell value in all the merged cells. For example, if I have A6:A15 merged together and its value is "FirstMerge" then I would like to unmerge all A6:A15 and then put "FirstMerge" in all the cell A6,A7,A8 etc. etc. upt oA15. I have lot of these merged cells in a sheet and I get this every month and makes any data processing very difficult. A macro or VBA code or any other solution will be fine.

Merged Cell - Lost Functionality

Automatically Resize Row With Merged Cell?

Dec 21, 2011

Is there a way to automate the resizing of a row to accomodate the text that is pulled into a cell as the result of a formula?

I have a merged cell which receives the result of a DGET formula. The result can be as few as 6 lines of text or as many as 24 lines.

I suspect I need to count the number of lines in the result and resize based on that count multiplied by 15 points.

I don't know how to write the VBA but it would be kind of Resize Row.Countlines x 15 pts. and be executed by the event of calculating the formula from its default setting.

Practically speaking, the default setting is sized per the result of the desired code: there is a blank formatted merged cell that can be manually overwritten that is sized by the typical number of bullet points.

Split Un-merged Cell Into Two Cells?

Nov 8, 2013

I have many columns in my current spreadsheet but I have two columns that I want to split in to two project names.

Currently I have one column with: Project A/Project B And the second column with the total cost of Project A AND Project B combined

The thing is that I can easily just create a new line but that would mean all the data in the other Cells remain the same and the only two that will be different are the above two columns. I will be maintaining alot of rows so I was hoping I do not have to create two rows for every new item then to merge both rows in reach column every time I have to put in a new Item.

I am hoping to have for example the below

Name Comments Project Cost
-------------------------------------------------
Item 1 This item relates Project A $150
to upgrade of Project B $120
SAS system
----------------------------------------------------

Currently I have it as

Name Comments Project Cost
-------------------------------------------------
Item 1 This item relates Project A/B $270
to upgrade of
SAS system
---------------------------------------------------
