Autosize Row Height

Mar 3, 2008

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.

Cell Comment Autosize

Mar 17, 2009

I have the code below, and it works perfectly on my Mac. But... on my PC it does not.

The cell comment does not resize horizontally when I enter text. So if I enter a long comment I get a comment box that extends far to the right to fit the contents in. Vertically it is fine, nothing cut off and no extra space.

Any ideas why this would be? Any ideas how I can force the text to wrap in the cell comment box?

Code is below:

Sub AddCom()
Const USERNAME As String = "Greer:"
Dim strCommentName As String
Dim cmnt As String
Dim NoMore As Boolean
Dim Pos As Long

cmnt = InputBox("Please enter a comment")
strCommentName = cmnt & vbLf & Now
On Error GoTo 0

With activeCell...........

Autosize Cell Comments/Shapes Via Macro Code

Aug 25, 2006

Among many attempts to insert and autosize a comment using VBA manually, which errored, i recorded the following bit. When running the macro, it does format the cell - text, not the comment - text and errors in the line highlighted in red.

Range("A14").Select
Range("A14").AddComment
Range("A14").Comment.Visible = False
Range("A14").Comment.Text Text:="Ladida"
With Selection
.HorizontalAlignment = xlLeft
.VerticalAlignment = xlTop
.ReadingOrder = xlContext
.Orientation = xlHorizontal
.AutoSize = True
End With

I just want to add

.AutoSize = True

or something to that effect to the bit below. Any suggestions?

Range("A14").Comment.Text "Ladida"

I am in desperate need of a macros that sets the heights and widths of columns and rows on a list of provided spreadsheets.

VBA Listbox Column Width?

Jun 5, 2012

I want to fill a listbox with n columns so there is no space other than the text in it.

I have tried this:

listbox1.columncount = 2
listbox1.columnwidth(len(activecell.text);len(activecell.offset(0,1).text))

Or:

mystring = len(activrcell.value) or refer to the excel column width

listbox1.columnwidth(mystring;mystring2)

but I get an error message.

Or max of list len or something. The default width is to big and specifying the length could make it to small.

Histogram Bin Width Calculation

Jul 11, 2007

I am looking for an formula to calculate the bin width for a histogram chart.

I am thinking of creating 50 bins for the chart. The range (max - min) of the data can be from 10 to 5,000,000.

A straighforward formula will be (max - min)/ 50. But I don't want decimal point in the bin numbers.

I am thinking of using Floor/Ceiling function, to round the bin-width to whole numbers, but 10/50, 100/50, 1000/50,..., 1000000/50 all need to round up/down to different scales! for example, I want 100/50 round to 5, 1000/50 round to 50 etc.....I was wondering is there a formula I can use to calculate the bin-width based on the criteria above or similar?

Locking Column Width And Row Height?

Jul 22, 2007

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?

Auto Column Width Resizing

Feb 13, 2014

Lets say i type for now...
A1 = USA
B1 = Philippines

and then later
A1 = dog
B1 = cat

Is there a way that the width would automatically adjust even as I change the values of the given cells; meaning, if a word is long, the width will automatically adjust "longer", if a word is short, then it will automatically adjust "shorter".

I know how the "AutoFit Column Width" works but I don't want to press that every time my values change (words becoming shorter or longer).

Print To Fixed Width File

Apr 4, 2012

I have this data below in an excel worksheet. I'm using the ws.Cells(x,x).Value command to read values from the cells an print them out to a .prn fixed width file. However when it writes it to the .prn file my numeric fields don't have are not 0.00 but 0. And also the numeric fields are left justified I would like them right justified in the .prn file.

Excel Spreadsheet values

1.135.102/29/120.000.001.135.202/29/120.000.00

My output to .prn file looks like below:

1.135.1 02/29/12 0 0
1.135.1 02/29/12 0 0

I would like my output to .prn file to look like the following:

1.135.1 02/29/12 0.00 0.00
1.135.1 02/29/12 0.00 0.00

How To Adjust Width Of Columns Faster

Nov 17, 2012

1. Is there a faster way to adjust the size of the columns? I had to use my mouse to stretch the column out. This can be quiet time consuming if there are 8 columns needing to adjust to the same size. ie Col A, B,I, J needs to be the same size.

2. Can Excel determine the best size for the column? Say I need a column with data saying "yes" and "no" and a column for the letter "X" only or do I have to stretch the width of the column myself?
