dbl click autofit cells with line feeds

dbl click autofit cells with line feeds

(OP)
a corporate system outputs data into an Excel spreadsheet. cell that have line feeds are displayed:
aaabbb, but on double click the cell is expanded and displays:
aaa
bbb
I've trying to replicate this for all used cells. A recorded macro shows:

CODE

Range("A11").Select
    ActiveCell.FormulaR1C1 = "TIN" & Chr(10) & "TIN" & Chr(10) & "" 
and if I debug.print ActiveCell.text before expanding the cell I get:
aaa
bbb

Any pointers gratefully received
Regards

RE: dbl click autofit cells with line feeds

...and your question is....

Maybe a sample workbook?

Skip,

glassesJust traded in my OLD subtlety...
for a NUance!tongue

RE: dbl click autofit cells with line feeds

Just a guess here...
Select all cells, Ctrl+1
Alignment tab - Wrap Text checkbox.
If it is not checked, check it.

Have fun.

There is a great need for a sarcasm font.

Andy,

many thanks. I did it with:

CODE

ActiveSheet.Columns.AutoFit
    ActiveSheet.UsedRange.WrapText = True
    ActiveSheet.Rows.AutoFit
