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.
Currently working on an excel worksheet. I merged 5 rows to a single cell. Want to be able to auto fit all the textl. Enabled auto wrap but when the contect surpass the 5 rows, only portion of the text are appearing. Any way to force the cell to autofit whatever text is within?
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
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.
Is there a way to get cells in a column to adjust their height automatically, or with a macro to account for text overflow/wrap?
For example, lets say a column is 200 px in width and it's height is enough to view a single line of text, and the column is set to wrap text. Now more text is entered into the cell and it needs to be re-sized to fit two lines of text.
Is there a way to create a macro button to have this done automatically?
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.
I'm trying to create an excel spreadsheet to manage personnel and various ongoing projects, what I'm trying to do is create a custom box with a selection of options (5) that will automaticaly fill a selected range of cells with a colour and 'merged' text that was selected from the custom box.
I have a worksheet where i need three columns at fixed widths and in one of these columns i need the text to wrap. I have a macro and have included a wrap text function in it but it doesn't seem to wrap text!! No cells are merged and the row height has not been altered from the default height. I would very much appreciate if one of you could look at the macro(pasted below) and tell me why the text won't wrap. I have looked through forums and found answers to this question, but none of the solutions I have come across seem to work
I added a shortcut Button using a Macro on the Menu Bar on Word Wrap (Format > Cells > Alignment > Tick Wrap Text). However, that button is working only on the Workbook I created. When I created the macro, I did not have the option of putting it in "Personal Macro Workbook"? How can I make that button work on all Worksheet I operate in Excel from now?
how I can get the text that is reflected in the Edit bar for cell A1 of the attachment to display fully within the cell boundriesof A1? I've reseached Qzgrid and found no previous answers. Is it an Excel 2003 bug that I just have to live with? You will see I've set the Text Control under Format Cells > Alignment to "Wrap text".
Text Wrap in TextBox within an Excel form. I canít get text to wrap within a textbox even though the ďWrapĒ option is selected for ďTrueĒ in the textbox properties. The textbox value is from a cell that has text within it. The textbox code is: Me.txtC1 = Format(Worksheets("Data").Range("T46"), "0")
The form code is: Me.txtC1.Value = Worksheets("Data").Range("T46").Value
I have a sheet that copies text info (merged and centered cell)from a cell in another sheet (text alt+enter to create more line), the text wrap is on, however i have to manually expand the cell to see all of the text
1. autofit all cells in 38 worksheets 2. copy the previous row without looking up or deleting or inserting. Just a simple copy previous row of values and formulas down one (to the next row empty or not) 3. Hide columns with headings hide in the first cell of the column.
Remember, I have 38 worsheets in the same workbook that it has to cycle thru. 4 of those are pivots, so no need to include those.
This is my current code to unwrap text for a given range
I would like to build in a IF function to say if the given range is unwrapped (Cells.WrapTEXT = False) THEN wrap the range (Cells.WrapTEXT = True) i.e. everytime the macro button is clicked it will wrap and unwrap the data range
I'm trying to execute something like this: [URL] ......
but without changing the cell value... I basically want a button that will wrap/unwrap all of the cells in the "B" column with one click. If i have to do the cell range for every individual cell in column B that's fine, but I can't seem to make the above example work while keeping the cell contents the same.
Is there a way to specify if there are 46 characters in a cell, to apply text wrap, indent the second line, and resize the row height to 25.5?
For example, I always will have text on merged cells B7:C7. I'd like to have a macro that determines if the text goes over C7 (I figured that it would take 46 characters to do this), that the merged cells will be text wrapped, then row 7 will be resized to 25.5.
I know how to record a macro that will text wrap and resize the row height but am not sure how to do the "if" condition.
A user inputs a string into a message box. A particular cell on a worksheet is then given the value of this string. I would like to have this cell automatically format to Wrap Text if the string is longer than 100 characters and skip to the next line after each 100 characters. However, if 101th character is part of a word, then that word would be on the next line. If the string is less than 100 characters then the cell is simply given the value of the inputted string ( I know how to do this )
I have been playing with custom formats recently and I'm wondering if there is anyway to make them wrap?
specifically I have several results that I have been formatting to show what they are related to
397235 visitors 392648 visitors 365487 visitors
I want these to display as visitors, but still be numbers so that they can be summed etc. The problem is that I need the text to wrap so that visitors is on the second line in the cell. unfortunatley all i get is a ########## error to show the cell is not wide enough even with wrap text turned on.
I have a sheet that has a section in range (c18:k25) (it is merged and text is wrapped) If that amount of space is not adequate to fit all their information I would like to add a macro that when activated it asks how many rows would you like to add and then based on that number whether it be 1-10 it would insert a new row to that merged range so they can continue adding more information . I have the sheet locked down to prevent changes so it would have to be unlocked and then re-locked within the macro.
I have a number of cells where I've put to wrap text, but the cell size is not adjusting when I type past the size of the cells, how do I get the cells the get bigger automaticly to fit all the text but bigger in height not length?
This is not related to macro - it's an excel question regarding wrapped-around text within a cell (i.e.: text brought onto next line by <Alt>+<Enter>)...
SayI have the following in a cell : Car<Alt>+<Enter> Truck<Alt>+<Enter> Van
and say I want to add a figure (in this example 1A) to the first part of the cell and then another to the second line of wrapped text and so on. How can I split the cell (or lookup the first 'wrapped' line) so that I can then perform changes (using formulas with '&' to combine etc or whatever) so that in the end cell have the following:
I need to count the number of Carriage returns in a string of text in a group of merged cells also I need to add a carriage return after the 1024 character because I have the wrap text on. My overall goal is have copy text fit into a group of merged cells without any being cut off by excel.
