if it is possible to change the border thickness weight via points? Eg., "1/4 pt".
I find that the xlthin border prints too thick. The only way I've been able to reduce it to appearing thin when it prints is by choosing the second option under "None" in the Line Style option of the Format Cells dialog box.
While that approach prints a thin border, it is actually a dotted line and looks a bit odd on screen.
I am trying to copy one worksheet using the "move/copy" function that is available when you right click a tab name and want to copy the worksheet in the same workbook
The steps I'm using are:
1. Right click the tab name 2. Select Move or Copy, 3. Select Create a Copy 4. Click OK
Doing all of the above does not work. When the new worksheet opens, all columns are the same width. It seems to be stuck on "autofit column width" setting of 8.5. The original worksheet is several columns wide all with different width settings.
I've also used Copy, Paste Special and selected column widths and that does not work either.
Scenario: Two computers running Windows 7 (64-bit Professional) with Excel 2007, same processor, same hard drive, same memory, same everything except the monitors - see below
Computer 1: HP LA2006x monitor (20" viewable diagonal) @ 1600x900 resolution, 91.79 PPI Computer 2: HP LA2206x monitor (21.5" viewable diagonal) @ 1920x1080 resolution, 102.46 PPI
We have an Excel spreadsheet that the column widths on columns A through K must equal exactly 6, 1, 6, 1, 8, 1, 13, 2, 8, 1, and 35 respectively in order for the data to be imported into another program. These exact column widths are set on Computer 1 and the .xslx file is saved to a network location.
Computer 2 opens the .xslx file from the exact same network location. The column widths display as 5.86, 0.92, 5.86, 0.92, 12.84; not the exact columns listed above. So if anyone needs to export the data from Computer 2, they have to manually adjust the column widths or run a macro to auto adjust the column widths.
My question, is there anything I can do on Computer 1 or Computer 2 to make it so the column widths are saved and open correctly no matter which one is saving and which one is opening? The 20" monitor on computer 1 cannot display the 1920x1080 resolution... already tried that.
Using Excel 2010. I have a ComboBox (Not ActiveX) on a worksheet
I'm trying to add an event so that when user click on a choice a macro is fired using the selected item as citeria for a filter When I click on the drop down and make a selection I receive this error msg:
Cannot find the macro "cboUserSelection_Change" The macro may not be available in this workbook or all macros may be disabled
I also tried _AfterUpdate - similar error message.
I added the Combo Box code to the Worksheet code, not a standard module
I was able to run a quick test macro so I do not believe "all macros are disabled"
I am using excel 2010. I have 3 separate form control each with its own macro. I would like to create a combo box with a drop down with a list of each form control case and be able to perform the same function as the individual form control when a specific name is chosen in the list of the combo box.
I have created a UserForm that has a ComboBox and depending on the number selected I want it to show that number of Labels/TextBoxes...
So if I select "0" nothing is shown, if I select "1" one set of Labels/TextBoxes is shown, select "2" and two sets of Labels/TextBoxes are shown... but also if I have selected "2" and then select "1" I want the second set to be hidden again...
Also I know I should have renamed the Label/TexBoxes to make it easer but I was adding things and making it up as I went along...
I'm using Excel 2010 on windows 7.
Code: Sub UnHide_NewRoutings() If (Engineering.ComboBox2.value) = "0" Then Engineering.Label4.Visible = False Engineering.TextBox5.Visible = False Engineering.Label9.Visible = False Engineering.TextBox9.Visible = False
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.
I would like to know if it's possible to change width of different cells in a single column? Example:
Width of cell A1 would be 10, and width of cell A2 would be 15. Can it be done? If yes how, if no damn. The reason I ask is because I trying to fit a report on one page with a chart and a month worth of data, but some cells are to long and they get cut off.
I am using a spreadsheet with a user defined function that contains an if and case statements fromthis thread. I am using a combo box to change the dependent cells but need something to automatically calculate the sheet. is there a way I can have a calculation occur every time a selection is made in the combo box or is there a macro that will do it.
Suppose I have the following UDF, which returns the width of the column, but when the column width change (increase or decrease), the UDF is not able to recalculate the column width...what should I do? .....
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?
I need to know how to format columns in a spreadsheet. What I want to do is autofit the columns, all except for Column A; I want that want at a fixed width of 9. The code below is my attempt to do this, and it's not resulting as I wish. Stepping through the code, it performs the first part beautifully and autofits all of the columns. Where I have the line
This is the scene. Imagine 2 lists of data, each list 2 columns wide (like 2 lists of names and phone numbers). List 1 covers column A and B, List 2 covers column D and E. I want it so that on the push of a button, columns A-E are automatically resized to be just big enough for their longest content, and column C resizes so that column D is on the next page.
The general idea is that you can print the sheet, and put together the pages relating to the seperate lists.
I have a series of worksheets (different workbooks) that have the same exact column widths and line depths. On screen the width and depth is identical but when printed, one takes up less width and more depth and the other vice-versa. Most (over 100) are just fine but every once in a while another is found that is distorted in print preview and printing and there seems to be nothing I can do to correct the problem. One difficult solution is to take the content from the "wrong" worksheet, do a save as on a "right" worksheet and drop the content in there.
Office and Excel 2013Windows 8Saving as different versions (xls instead of xlsx) makes no difference.Same printerSame monitorsAll worksheets are set to 17 pixels for both columns and rows (looks like graph paper)After setting up print area and viewing, the light gray dashed lines that show page breaks are different! The majority ("right") sheets have four fewer columns and four more rows than do the "wrong" worksheets.
I'm looking for one function for each of these properties that will provide them with negligible overhead in all or almost all spreadsheet data cases, such as the normal spreadsheets, autofiltered data, large workbooks, etc.
By the way, by "first row", I mean the first row after the header row, given that the header row is in row 1.
I am looking for some to create a simple macro to sort multiple rows in ascending order based on the values in a particular column in the selected range. I want to sort A4:AI1004 in ascending order by column D. I recorded the following macro in Excel 2010:
Sub sort() ' ' sort Macro ' sort by column D (Sequence #) ' ' Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select Range(Selection, Selection.End(xlToRight)).Select
First of all, I think this code can probably be simplified. Secondly, it does not work in older versions of Excel. In 2007 it always ends in a runtime error. How can I clean this up so that it will work in both versions of Excel?
