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.

Find Last Number In Row / Add 1 To Current Cell (if Another Cell In That Column Has Text)

May 23, 2014

file storage

1. Look at the "Days so far" section

2. Ignore cell C1

3. All the other cells in that row are shaded blue. Look at these.

4. Look at the "Volunteer" row - all the cells in that row are shaded blue. Look at these.

5. Wherever a name - any name - appears in the "Volunteer" row, 1 is added to the previous number in the "Days so far" section and the result is displayed in cell from the "Days so far" row above that Volunteer's name.

6. For example, we begin in C1 with a count of 12 days so far - this was manually entered

7. In cell H5, we see Henry has volunteered 1 day. The total no. of days so far should now be 12+1. Therefore, the number in H1 should be 13.

8. In cell G47, we see Joseph has volunteered 1 day. The total number of days volunteered BEFORE Joseph volunteered is 15 (see cell D43). But now, with Joseph volunteering 1 day, the total no. of days so far should now be 15+1. Therefore, the number in G43 should be 16.

9. what formula l must put in the "Days so far" row (excluding cell C1, which is manually input) to give me the "should be" results predicted in that row? I'm guessing it will be a formula which looks at each row fragment of the "Days so far" row, row by row, right up to the previous cell in that row, all within one formula.

P.S. I just want to leave the "Days so far" row blank, for any columns where there are no volunteers in the "Volunteer" row, so please don't give a formula which inserts zero for days with no volunteer, and then sums the cumulative total.

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. Its visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.

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.

Find Column A Cell Value If It Exists For Current Cursor Row Position

trying to find the value of column A (date field) if it exists on the row that the cursor is presently on. I'm trying to check for the value before performing the next function to make sure the user is on a valid row. Cursor could be on any column A to F. Columns are always 6 but the rows can vary.

Autofit, But Not The Complete Column

Feb 2, 2009

I have some Worksheets in which cell A1 contains a textual heading for each Worksheet.
On each Worksheet, cells in the range A2 to O5 containg headings; the data goes in rows 6 onwards.

In VBA script, I'd like to autofit columns A to O, but starting at row 2 so the text in A1 is not included. For each sheet, I can determine the last row, to get a "range" to autofit (e.g. "A2:P15").

I've run a search on Autofit; the only examples I can find autofit the whole column or set of columns.

Is it possible to autofit starting at a specific row?

Need To Calculate Cell Width To Decimal Place

Mar 25, 2014

I am trying to found or create a formula that will display cell width to the decimal place.

I can use the formula Cell("width"), but it rounds to the nearest integer. I need to display the decimals. For instance, if the actual column width is 8.43, the Cell("Width") formula will display 8. I need it to show 8.43.

Autofit Column Range By Column Number

Dec 17, 2012

I've been trying various syntax for an hour now and I cannot figure out how to reference a range of complete columns by column number.

I know this works


But the number of columns is dynamic, so I don't know which one is the end. So I have the column number but cannot figure out how to reference the column range by number. I have tried versions of the code below but they all give different errors. This one is Run-time error 1004 Application-defined or object-defined error.

Worksheets(strWS).Columns(Cells(1, 2), Cells(1, lngLastCol)).EntireColumn.AutoFit

I am pretty sure I am close but the referencing is the issue. I can find all sorts of referencing by letter but not number. I've tried

Worksheets(strWS).Columns(Columns(2), Columns(lngLastCol)).EntireColumn.AutoFit
but I get the same error.

Listbox Column Widths And Lengths -Autofit

Dec 9, 2009

I've got a Listbox in a User form that looks at data on another spreadsheet purely for informational purposes, not to be selected. I have two problems with what it's doing:

1) There are 23 columns, of varying widths. However the listbox uses a standard width, so some items are truncated and some have too much room.

2) The data changes, and the number of rows may change from 2 to 15000. I've set the RowSource to cover the ranged from A1:W15000, but if only 2-300 lines are selected the user can't grab the scrollbar button to scroll through, but must instead use the arrow, which is rather slow.

Is there any way to set the column widths to match the data, and the Range to only go as far as the last populated row?

Expand Cell Width - Compile Error Procedure Too Large

Aug 8, 2012

The following code expands a cell width to size 42 when it is clicked on, then minimises it to size 9.29 when clicked elsewhere. Just what I need.

For instance, this would work for column 4.

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Columns(4).ColumnWidth = IIf(Target.Column = 4, 42, 9.29)
End Sub

However, I need this to cover the first 1000 columns. More if possible. I can easily copy this 1000 times, changing the column number to then look like this (First 10 shown for example)

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Columns(4).ColumnWidth = IIf(Target.Column = 4, 42, 9.29)
Columns(5).ColumnWidth = IIf(Target.Column = 5, 42, 9.29)
Columns(6).ColumnWidth = IIf(Target.Column = 6, 42, 9.29)

[Code] .....

The problem is if I do this 1000 times i get a Compile error that the procedure is too large. Is it possible to make the code more compact to basically cover all columns from 4 onward?

I have 2 workbooks, A (source) and B (destination).
Workbook A has 1 sheet named 'master' and has 10 columns a:j

I would like to copy a range of data in worksheet 'master' for entire 10 columns while the cell value (moving down worksheet) of the next cell in column A is greeater than the current cell. eg. if cell values of range a1:a6 = 1 then cell value a7 =2, then copy range a1:j6 to workbook B in sheet 'r1'.

Then I would like to go back to Workbook A sheet 'master' and begin process again starting from where it left off at a7.

Last Occupied Cell To The Left And Equal To Or Above Current Cell

Nov 22, 2009

I've been pounding away at a project for two days trying to determine a way to identify a solution, to no avail.

Here is some experimental code. Under the assumption that in Column "A", every fifth line contains some text (a, b, c, etc) I want to place a function in column B that would identify the closest occupied cell above and to the left of the cell containing the function. The sub achieves this, but the function has a problem because of the Activecell line. Is there a way to identify the location of the cell containing the function to act as a reference point for the range?

Sub find_last_heading()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
x = ActiveCell.Address
ActiveCell.Offset(0, -1).Select
last_heading = ActiveCell.Text
Do Until last_heading ""
ActiveCell.Offset(-1, 0).Select
last_heading = ActiveCell.Text
MsgBox last_heading
End Sub
Function cathead(Optional reference)

Dim cell

Adding Column Widths Of Merged Area To Match Single Column Width

Sep 19, 2012

I needed to match the width a merged area of seven columns to a single column width (for row autofitting). Adding the column unit values and setting the single column to that value produced a significantly narrower width.

The documentation mentions that the column width unit is scaled to the font type and size and the absolute width is given in points.

This is set by the normal style setting in Excel Options or by VBA application.standardfontsize = 8 (in this case).

For instance, ten columns of Arial font 8 at 8.5 units you would think to be equivalent to a single column of 85 units.
In points, the difference is 420 vs. 386.25, or 33.75 points.

Well, the standard character zero has a width at this setting of 4.5 points and 1 unit is 8.25 points, leaving 3.75 points for margins.

Then (10-1) margins allowances time 3.75 points resolves the difference.

Determining the margin allowances is straightforward, and reveals that the gradation with size is stepped by MS design.
For instance, sizes up to 11 use 3.75 points for margins and increasing points for characters (except between 9 & 10).
Sizes 12 through 18 use 5.25 points, 20 & 22 use 6.75, 24 & 26 use 8.25, etc.

I have created a table for this purpose, however I rarely use a "normal" other than 8, so I can probably use that set in programming.

Increase Current Cell ONLY When Different Than Target Cell

Jul 27, 2007

I am looking for a way to avoid the circular reference issue. I would like to monitor a cell that is being incremented and decremented so that I can automatically retain the highest and the lowest values that were entered into that specific cell over time. Since the data is only entered into that specific cell and not retained in for example a column, the MAX/MIN option is not usable in this case.

More simply stated, is there a way to put a formula in a specific cell ( A1 ) that will equal the target cell ( B1 ) only when that target cell ( B1 ) is greater than A1?

Locking Column Width And Row Height?

I'm creating a map like image with Excel, and I've set the column width and row height to certain dimensions. Now I'm entering in some text into them, and I noticed that when I added in 2 digit numbers, the column width expanded a little bit. I want to prevent this from happening, and still be able to enter in the 2 digit text (since it WILL fit, and it's expanding to keep that extra bit of space).

Is there any way to lock the dimensions?
