Rows a1:a10 are merged and the problem is that all cells next to these are now not wrapping. I remember reading that when a call is merged this is what happens to the cells adjacent, but is there any code that can help to wrap these adjacent cells?
If I want to write some text in a cell but am not sure how much I am going to write, how do I set the row hight to auromatically expand to fit the text I enter? I have tried row height auto-fit but that doresnt seem to work.
I am preparing a very large spreadsheet of text. Once I reach a certain point (a few paragraphs?), the program stops wrapping the text. All of my text is visible in the box at the top of the spreadsheet when I click on the cell. I double checked to make sure it's set to wrap, which it is. I tried merging two cells, no change.
I am running windows XP SP2 with Office 2000 SP2 I have a spreadsheet in Excel and I have one cell I'm trying to wrap the text in so the text will fit in the cell but it's not working, some of the text is hidden in the cell unless I drag the cell block way over to expose the text contents.
I have tried all possible ways to make the entire text appear in the cell. I changed the cell sizes by dragging the row and column margins, changed text-general format and a lot other things but it appears that excel does not even know I have text in the cell. I also entered ALT+Enter to add a line break. Nothing happens. The text remains the same way. Dragging the margins only feels like uncovering the hidden layer of text under it.
if there is maximum number of characters in a cell, above which wrapping and the row height auto-fit functions will not work? I typed a paragraph into a cell and have the cell set to wrap and the row height to auto-fit but it does not display on print preview or on actual printing past a certain character in the cell. Even when I manually increase the row height, it still does not display.
Currently working on an excel worksheet. I merged 5 rows to a single cell. Want to be able to auto fit all the textl. Enabled auto wrap but when the contect surpass the 5 rows, only portion of the text are appearing. Any way to force the cell to autofit whatever text is within?
I am using Office 2007. I have a cell that is set to wrap the text. Only thing is when it goes over 273 characters or so it no longer wraps and all I see is ###########. Is there a text wrap limit? I don't recall there being a limit. I tried making the cell height larger but that didn't work.
I have several columns "A" thru "J" with simple contents, part#, qty, date, etc. and in column "K" descriptive text which can run several sentences long.
I'm trying to record a macro to insert a row, merge "A" thru "J" in that new row, cut the text from the "K" cell in the row above and select wrap text so it shows up below those headings so my user can read it.
Would look like:
I can get it to look like that if I grab the row borders and drag it to fit, but can I get it to increase row height and wrap to fit the text length automatically with the macro?
Code looks like this so far:
Keyboard Shortcut: Ctrl+Shift+M
Dialog box pops up "This operation will cause some merged cells to unmerge.
I'm going to have a shortcut key in the macro to do this one row at a time, as the data isn't that extensive, but I don't want to have to drag all the row heights.
I am using a staff schedule spreadsheet and have each column displaying text of where a staff person is assigned.
Instead of displaying the word "lunch" separately across several columns, is it possible to merge several columns and have the word "lunch" automatically stretched evenly across the several merged columns?
I dont want it to be centered but to literally be stretched to fit evenly across all of the merged cells.
I'm trying to create an excel spreadsheet to manage personnel and various ongoing projects, what I'm trying to do is create a custom box with a selection of options (5) that will automaticaly fill a selected range of cells with a colour and 'merged' text that was selected from the custom box.
I want to take a list of phone numbers in a single column(800,000+ rows)and spread the numbers across the page horizontally to fill the page. Each of the new rows will have probably 4-5 phone numbers. below is an illustration:
I Want users to be able to copy a reference number from a an external program into excel, this works well for single cells but the cell I want them to be able to paste the information into is a merged cell and keep getting the "Data on the clipboard is not the same size and shape blah blah error". What I can do to get this information to paste? Is there some VBA that can kinda trick the cell to believe its single or when pasting it unmerges and then remerges again?
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.
The issue that I am having is with merged cell data. What I am trying to do is check the value of the merged cell against a selection from an array and place the value into a cell.
What apparently occurs is that if the row that I am on is an even number (being as my rows start on an odd number); the reference returns empty. I have tested to confirm that this only affects even numbered rows. My spread sheet has a 2 row merged cell in column 2, and the cell I am referencing from is on the second row of that merged cell. Here is some
Is there any quick and easy way to unmerge merged cells and put the merged cell value in all the merged cells. For example, if I have A6:A15 merged together and its value is "FirstMerge" then I would like to unmerge all A6:A15 and then put "FirstMerge" in all the cell A6,A7,A8 etc. etc. upt oA15. I have lot of these merged cells in a sheet and I get this every month and makes any data processing very difficult. A macro or VBA code or any other solution will be fine.
Is there a way to automate the resizing of a row to accomodate the text that is pulled into a cell as the result of a formula?
I have a merged cell which receives the result of a DGET formula. The result can be as few as 6 lines of text or as many as 24 lines.
I suspect I need to count the number of lines in the result and resize based on that count multiplied by 15 points.
I don't know how to write the VBA but it would be kind of Resize Row.Countlines x 15 pts. and be executed by the event of calculating the formula from its default setting.
Practically speaking, the default setting is sized per the result of the desired code: there is a blank formatted merged cell that can be manually overwritten that is sized by the typical number of bullet points.
