I'm currently having an issue with Clear All... which sets the font to Tahoma, size 11. Font is okay, but I have my default size set to 10. Everytime I Clear All on even a single cell, the row size increases from 13.50 to 14.25 (from 17 to 20 pixels).
I am creating a heat map using two variables from a questionnaire: firstly the number of people impacted by a question; and secondly, the level of the impact. Respondents are asked to give these values in two adjacent cells. These are then multiplied to give a weight eg 1000 people x level 3 impact = 3000. I have used Conditional Formatting to colour the cell according to the impact level (0 = none - white (default), 1 = moderate - tan, 2 = significant - orange, 3 = high - red). What I want to do is then change the font size to give an indication of the number of people impacted, eg 1 - 1000 font 8, 1001 - 3000 font 12, 3001 - 8000 font 16, 8000 - 2000 font 24 etc. The size of font and colour will then represent the number of respondents and their impact.
I can't use Conditional Formatting as the value of 3000 could be derived from 1000 people at level 3 (red), or 3000 people at level 1 (tan). Is there another way of setting the font size depending on the cell value, eg by VBA?
Excel 2010. I need to place picture into one cell or one big merged cell, as a background fill. picture must resize to size of cell. must be fixed in, not in front. i still need write into that cell, so it needs to be really background.
Any way to restore the default reference libraries that are checked the first time you open Tools => References in VBA in Excel 2013. I think I accidentally unclicked something that's necessary to run the program, and I can't find a "default restore" option or anything of that sort.
I have excel 2007 and I came across the following difficulty:
If I create a graph (or a chart) the default size is "Letter". However, I can switch this "Letter" to "A4" which I need and then create a template. But I always have to manually choose this template for new charts. However switching this any time I create a new chart is a rather bad way to cope with. Even clicking on set as default obviously does not cause to have A4 size for new chart, it still has got size of Letter when adding a new chart.
I assume the solution could be in XLStart templates, but it probably doesnt work for charts that you add. Or at least I didnt find any clue on the internet for this problem.
I am trying to define a font colour within a macro When I record the macro, I choose a colour from the font colour-picker in the Home section of the ribbon. The colour I choose is one of the grey shades Everything seems to work ok, and the macro saves with the colour defined as a long number, e.g.
is it possible to change the settings on your computer so that when you open Excel, it opens it as a certain type of file? I like working with .xlsb because I work with large sets of data all of the time and find that they open faster and are faster to work with. Currently every time I open Excel, it opens as .xlsx.
I just discovered forms in excel and loving what custom functionality you can create with it; however, I need to include a table into the form but I've come to a road block. I don't see a way possible to render data from a query into a table inside of a form.
I'm looking to set up a spreadsheet whereby individuals answer questions and have to format their answer using a particular font, colour, font size and so on. The idea is that I can then compare their answer sheet to a pre completed one using an =IF function and get a total score. The only problem is =if and =exact only lookup cell text/numbers and don't look at how the text is formatted within them.
I have text of size 14 and 18 mixed in cells in a column. Cells are font size 18 or mixed with both 14 and 18 size text. I need to sort out the text with one column of size 14 and another of 18 only. I am thinking of copying and pasting the column twice and run a macro in first column to remove the text of size 14, and another macro to delete text of size 18 in second column. I need the leftover text to be in same rows.
I tried everywhere and couldn't find a macro for mixed text cells. I am using Microsoft Excel 2010.
I have an Excel file which has a macro that sucks in data from a number of separate files (two Excel, a varying number of csv). The macro grabs all the individual files and loads them into one of three worksheets with some formatting, sorting, and structuring on the way. All good so far.
I then need to take two of the worksheets and copy them to a new Workbook which I can send out to some users. So I use the Workbooks.Add method, and use the Selection.Copy on just the data (UsedRange.Rows/Columns.Count to ensure it is only the data) and Selection.PasteSpecial with the xlPasteColumnWidths, xlPasteValues, and xlPasteFormats options to copy the data over. None of the data is filtered. Just straight data.
I would expect the newly added workbook to be smaller than the one with the macros because the one with the macros has two extra sheets that I don't transfer, and the sheets I do transfer are identical.
And that's where it gets weird. The file with the macros and more data is 18.7Mb, but the new one with only two sheets is 24.8Mb. One is .xlsm and the other is .xlsx (because it has no macros).
I've tried opening the new workbook and saving as .xlsm (no material difference to the size) and as .xls (it got even bigger). I've opened the new workbook, gone to the end of the data and deleted all the blank rows and columns, but no effect (because the rows are already empty).
Why would the file with less in it be so much bigger (or bigger at all)?
I am using this formula (Below) and it is working great. Only problem is that I want the client name to be be bold and font size 12, then I want it to highlight in Red. I also want the rows in colunm L to highlight in bright green.
Sub InputData() Dim varUserInput As Variant Dim LastRow As Integer
It involved opening a new workbook and changing the number of worksheets in a new workbook, cell sizes, font, and font sizes... and then saving the workbook in one of the system folders under the name "workbook" to change the default workbook attributes, or "worksheet" to change default worksheet attributes.
I have a workbook that includes a drop down list with three options. One of the options is "TA". The default font type for these cells is "Wingdings" but when "TA" is chosen I want the Font Type to change to "Arial".
I would like to know if there is a way to change the font type in a cell, if a condition is true in another cell. e.g font in cell C3 is Arial Rounded MT Bold and if condition is true in cell F3 then font is changed to Arial Narrow.
I am trying to set up conditional formatting in cell C4 to change the font to a smaller number based on the value of C4. If C4 = 0 then Font Calibri 16, otherwise Font Calibri 24. However, the font size is not availabe, it is greyed out. Is there another way to accomplish this without using VBA? In the worksheet could I use an if() statement to change the font size?
What I am trying to do is that I have an excel file with macros and it is a read-only file. In order for the user to save, I want them to only be able to save as a .xlsx file as it disables all macros. If for whatever reason, the user wants to save the file as another .xlsm file, they should be allowed but before they save, a "are you sure you want to save as .xlsm?" message should pop up.
All the options in the save as box should still be available in case they want to save in that particular format. Just that the .xlsx should be the default.
I have my Excel set up for a default font size of 12 point.
I often download CSV data to insert into spreadsheets. It opens in a new spreadsheet, and it's properly displayed in 12 point size. When i copy and paste it into the ultimate target spreadsheet (which is also set to 12 point size) the pasted data shows up as 10-point and I have to change the font size back to 12-point every time.
Why is this happening and how can I avoid that re-sizing that occurs?
This probably sounds really weird, but does anyone know whether the size of the text in Cell A1 on Sheet 1 can be linked to the size of the text in Cell B2 on Sheet 2? Like, when I change the size of Cell A1's text, is there a way to have the size of Cell B2's text change as well?
I currently have an Excel spreadsheet already created. I have added drop down lists using the Validation>Data feature and can get this to create the drop-down box, but the font is unreadable. If I create a new sheet and create the drop-down list it becomes readable. I can't figure out why the first is unreadable due to its small size. I eventually plan to add formulas to calculate how many yes's or no's in a column, but will address that later. I use Excel 2003.
I was just wondering how I can type in a different colour. I.e. I have a document and I want to type in random cells but I always want to be typing in red, or blue etc. Hoe can I change the default text color?
Is it possible to control the font size in a cell with a sliderBar?. I have a template I use to print labels on cd sleeves and need to change the font a lot. Looking for a fast and easy way,seems like a sliderbar would be easy.
How do you increase the font size of a drop down list in excel apart from zooming in. I have 10 dropdwnbxs each with about 16 items.
Everything works fine but users can not see the contents of each drop down box(fonts are too small). Is there a solution to this? (or just keep zooming in/out). Example i have a drop down box in A2 with source from F2:F17.....etc
