Change length of Functional Band

Change length of Functional Band

I'm creating a Cross-Functional Flowchart with veritical Functional Bands within Visio Standard 2002 SP-2.  I'm able to change the width of the bands, however I'm unable to change the height.  
Thanks in advance for any assistance.

RE: Change length of Functional Band

I believe I've figured it out.  

Highlight the outline of the band, richt-click properties, then select protection.  Uncheck the Height selection box.  Click ok.  

Select Window>Show ShapeSheet.  The first grid should be Shape Transform and the Height value will have a GUARD() function.  Remove this wrapper.  For example, change =GUARD(Sheet.62!Width*1) to =Sheet.62!Width*1.  

Click the blue checkmark on the menu bar to accept the change.  

You should now be able to change the height of the Functional Band.
