Excel - Excel: How do I auto expand Cells to show all the wrapped text?

Asked By DonnaTypes0 on 12-Jun-07 08:22 PM
Trying to make row heights change to accommodate varying amounts of text
without manually adjusting the row height.  Is there a setting I can use?

Format>Rows>Autofit with cells set to Wrap Text under Format>Cells>Alignment

NOTE:  if you are using "merged cells" autofit will not work and needs VBA event
code to change row heights.

I don't see a reply to "Laisviak"  last question, so I am replying in the
hope of getting an answer.  I too have done all I can to adjust row height
and wrap text, but it is not working.

I have Outlook 2007, cells are all formated to Text, wrap, allignment
general and top

Some of the cells wrap and auto height the rows to show all of the text

Some of the cells will not auto height the rows and if I manually expand the
row using my cursor, the text still does not show.  It only shows when I
double click the cell.

I have hightlighted all rows and chose auto-row height and still some cells
will not adjust.

I'm having the same problem as AnnieB. Have auto row height set, word wrap,
etc. Have not maxed out in the # characters/cell.  Auto height worked when
only approx 50 characters, but now, as more text added, only getting the ####
error -- even when manually increasing the row height.  Can see the actual
text when the cell is double clicked.

Please - does someone have a solution?  Am using home version Excel 2007 and
Vista OS.
