Depending On Value Of One Cell - Pull A Set Of Data From Another Page Varying Length / Width

Aug 12, 2014

I have drop drown menus that allow you to select 1 of 3 choices and based on those a second set which lists the options for the first three (subset). Now depending on the second value I need to pull a set of x y coordinates that can be of varying length. '

Example

Drop down menu 1 1560, 1669, 1554. Drop down menu 2 1560-1,2,3,4 1669-a,b,c,d. This has been done now lets say I select 1560-1. I need the following to be pulled from a list, the data is a block.

1.00 1.543
1.23 -1.25
0.54 -2.75

This can be of any length.

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.

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.

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).

Copying Column Width From Another Sheet

Aug 11, 2009

I have an Excel file where there are multiple people's information on one sheet, and I have to split them out into multiple sheets. So I have written a loop to successfully do that.

However, I need all the sheets to have the same column widths as the original sheet. So after I insert a new sheet and cut and paste the appropriate data, I call another Sub Procedure from my main Procedure to do this. That Sub Procedure looks like this:

Sub MySetColumnWidth()
' Copy the column width for the first 30 columns
Dim i As Integer

For i = 1 To 30
ColumnS(i).ColumnWidth = Sheets("Sheet1").ColumnS(i).Width
Next i

End Sub
However, I am not getting the results I expect. The column widths change, but are not the right sizes, and I have no idea why.

One odd thing I have notice, is that is mind code, whenever I type in:
Columns(i)
VBA automatically changes it to
ColumnS(i)
I have no idea why. I have no code or variables named "ColumnS". I am not sure if this is somehow playing into my problems...

BTW, I am using Excel 2007.

Finding Max Column Width Without A Loop?

Jun 28, 2006

I have a range of cells which I wish to print to a .txt document. However, I would like these cells to stay aligned, one on top of the other. I am currently doing that by finding the cell with the widest piece of data for each column, and storing the width that each column needs to be to an array of integers. Then, when printing out the range, I simply add spaces to each piece of data its width is the same as the max column width. I am finding the max column width using the following loop:

'find the width for each column and store in col_width()
For cur_col = 1 To total_cols
'skip the tag switches column
If cur_col <> 3 Then
max_data_width = 0
For cur_row = 1 To total_rows
cell_data_width = Len(Find_String_Diagnostics(diagnostic_range.Cells(cur_row, cur_col)))
If cell_data_width > max_data_width Then.................

Word Wrap VBA To Specific Column Width?

Jul 11, 2012

I have a database in excel, here's some sample data.

When they click the print button in Cell A2, up comes my form

When the print tags button is pressed, my secondary sheet is populated with the cell they clicked on

Now it's using a font, calibri 11, which isn't proportional but I was wondering if there's a way in VBA to "auto" detect the max width and place words on the next row accordingly (like a word wrap). Here's what I need it to look like:

Here's my existing code to place the comments as is:

Code:

entireComment = "Comments: " & Range("P" & i)
.Range("A" & cnt + 11).Value = Mid(entireComment, 1, 33)
If Len(entireComment) >= 36 Then

Excel 2010 :: Unable To Set Column-width?

Oct 5, 2012

From one moment to another I am not able to set the column width doing the following: right-mouse-button click (the column) and choose column width and then type in the desired width The column width is not set this way.

Setting the column width by dragging the right side of the column works well. Also double clicking the right side of the column (auto width) works fine.

I think I have pressed a certain key combination (I am not aware of) to activate this behavior.

How can I re-activate/enable the above (1st) mentioned method to change the column width?

How To Fix Column Width And Save It Before Closing File

May 30, 2002

I am trying to fix the width of a column everytime I open it but I can't. After I have fixed the column width and saved it before I close the file, when i reopen it, the column width will expand. The data source of that column is a real time query. I tried to lock the cell but when i locked it, I can't refresh the data from the query as it is locked. So, is there any way for me to achieve that?

Determine Column Width Pixels / Characters

Feb 22, 2008

I looked at a couple pages of Ozgrid solutions for people that were having word wrap issues and decided my issue wasnt related to any of them - my cells are not merged and they are not exceeding 1024 characters. I have a sales sheet with column headings as the name of the product, many of which have long names (but all less than 100 characters). For example, one cell value is "Flow Meters And Regulators 2007" and another is "Sphygmomanometers 2007".

My column width pre-format is 8.43 and after format is 7.86

The only code I use to adjust the row and column size is

With Rows("1:2")
.WrapText = True
.AutoFit
End With
Columns.AutoFit

As you can imagine "Sphygmomanometers" breaks into two lines in the short confines of 7.86 width. How can i get the column autofit to adjust to the full word?
