I am using Excel 2007 and I would simply like to autofit every column o that the information fits and is visible. I would do this myself, but when you have to open many files with as many as 100 columns, its not fun.
I am trying to write a small sub which will make do an "AutoFit" for all columns of the Active Sheet. For example, the code below does an "AutoFit" for columns A:J of a sheet. How can I make it do the same for all columns (not only for columns A:J) of the ActiveSheet?
I have a worksheet that has several hidden columns and wish to have the EntireRow.Autofit apply to all rows in the current region based on visible columns. After using the WrapText method on all visible cells, one of the hidden columns with a lot of characters causes the entire row to be much larger than desired. Is there a way to use EntireRow.Autofit to only expand the height of each row in the current region as necessary based only on the visible cell contents in that row?
Set AllCells = ActiveCell.CurrentRegion ActiveCell.CurrentRegion.Select With AllCells .Font.Size = 6 .Font.Bold = False .WrapText = True .EntireRow.AutoFit = True End With
I used the code below to successfully create workbooks from the filtered list using the below code provided on this forum (see link below). The only problem is that I want the resulting columns to fit to width.

Is there a way / code i can put into a macro which can autofit a group of sheets or a whole work book. I have a workbook with 100's of sheets and it takes alot of time to click each sheet and autofit them manually.
I do run a macro for each sheet, so if i could build it into a macro by adding the code to it that would be great
I'm trying to Autofit a number of Rows within a macro. I need to autofit Rows 8 to 80 as the content of these rows will have been updated by lines earlier in the macro. Some rows will now contain more than 1 line of text whereas others will now be blank.
I have a range named "rngOrders" on an Excel 2003 worksheet. I'm looking for a VBA macro that will set the row heights of the range to autofit (for rows/cells with wrapped text) and also set a minimum row height of 19.5 points for all rows.
1. autofit all cells in 38 worksheets 2. copy the previous row without looking up or deleting or inserting. Just a simple copy previous row of values and formulas down one (to the next row empty or not) 3. Hide columns with headings hide in the first cell of the column.
Remember, I have 38 worsheets in the same workbook that it has to cycle thru. 4 of those are pivots, so no need to include those.
I've just created a spreadsheet that we will be using as a project review form. In this spreadsheet I have multiple rows of merged cells, column D to N, for comments. I need these comment areas, merged rows, to autofit whatever is cut and pasted or typed into them.
The first problem is cutting and pasting from a pdf. All of the documents we received for the projects we bid are in pdf format. We often cut and paste from those documents into an older version of our review sheet that was built in Word. Trying to cut and paste the same information into Excel ends up in failure. Is there a way that this can be done without jumping through hoops?
The second problem Iím running into is when I cut and paste into a comment area I get the typical Excel error message that the information being pasted does not fit the area it is being pasted into. It there a workaround for this?
My third problem is autofitting the pasted information into the merged cells. Iíve seen some VBA and tried a couple but they donít work automatically when the comments area is filled. How can I do this? I donít know VBA. I'm using MS Office 2003
I am trying to manipulate some worksheets during a Workbook_BeforeClose event. On sheet names that end with "sd" they need to alphabetize the data and autofit the columns. All sheets should hide on close, except "order". This is what I have but warning - it did something bad to my workbook. I can't get it back again. Had to force close Excel.
Every time I type a number too large for a column, Excel resizes that column. This is definitively not what I want to do. I googled a lot and looked at all options, but I could not find a way to stop this behaviour.
how to disable any Autofit initiave from Excel 2010?
I'm using Office 2007 professional and I'm trying to format a cell (merged cell) so that when you enter text and it goes beyond the size of the designed cell that it will automatically continue and shift the additional text downward, like a paragraph. Also it shift everything below down with it. Is this possible? I have already tried wrap text field and AutoFit row height. This keeps it within the cell but it is not visible or printable once you tab out. I would like to have it continue like in a paragraph. Like a word doc may do. Itís visible and it shifts everything below downward as it grows, which also allows it to be printable.
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 have a document that I created that has merged cells. In order to autofit the rows of this document, I referenced the merged cells in singular cells that are not visible to the users of the document. (They are not hidden)
It had been working relatively nicely, but now the autofit function is not working correctly. If I copy and paste values into the cell it will work, but this would not be my ideal solution. I have tried playing with the number format, which works for the most part if I set it to "&" - text. It doesn't work for some longer cells with line breaks in them.
Same file shared by many users in the office. File is maybe 2200 rows long and 20 columns wide. Last column is a text field where users can explain variances. Cells in the last column are wrapped and the rows auto-fit on the height. Zoom is set at 100%.
One person opens the file and it looks fine on the screen. Print preview also looks fine. File prints out perfectly.
Another user opens the file and it looks fine on the screen. BUT, print preview shows that the bottom line or lines of text is cut off. File prints exactly like the preview showed with clipped text.
Both users can point the file to the same printer, but that doesn't seem to change anything. Still prints with text clipped for one person and perfectly for another...
How do I get the first 4 columns to appear on all sheets?
We have a database of 1000 children. I have a workbook with a few sheets, each sheet tracks different information about the child. I'd like their Names and Dates of birth to appear on all sheets. Right now, I've simply copied those 4 columns to each sheet (and frozen them) but since we are constantly making changes to the list of children, I'd like to just make the change once. (I've tried selecting all sheets when adding or deleting a name, but somehow they never coincide correctly.)
Is it possible to have 4 columns appear on all sheets? (but not as copies of themselves)
The code below compares values on sheet 4 column A to sheet 3 column A and then colors a cell "Green" (Temporary), later I will place data from sheet 4 into sheet 3.
I dont know why but when it finds data on sheet 4 that is not 100% numeric it errors out.
Run-time error '91' Object variable or With block variable not set.
The data in sheet 4 column A is primarily numeric, there are and always will be some numeric/alpha strings. I can change the value of sheet 4 A2 to "123x" from "123" and the code stops as described. Leaving sheet 4 A1 as 100% numeric, which works fine.
