Excel Row Height

Excel Row Height

Excel Row Height

I have text that I need to format on my spreadsheet. It needs to span multiple columns (merge) and then wrap. I don't know how many lines it will wrap to in advance. Is there a way to calculate what I should programatically set the row height to since "Wrap" doesn't change the row height for merged cells?



RE: Excel Row Height

What you want to do isn't very clear, but this is how you merge and set all the cells in the merge to wrap text.

    RangeString = "C27:E34" ' you can construct this string any way you want to.

    With Selection
        .HorizontalAlignment = xlGeneral
        .VerticalAlignment = xlBottom
        .WrapText = True
        .Orientation = 0
        .AddIndent = False
        .ShrinkToFit = False
        .MergeCells = True
    End With

I'm not sure if this will do the trick but I will check it out. Thanks. DB
