Does any body know How to Convert

Excel Rows Height to Inches

Excel Column Width to Inches

Or Is there any formula to Convert

Row Col H W Points to Inches

Excel Rows Height to Inches

Excel Column Width to Inches

Or Is there any formula to Convert

Row Col H W Points to Inches

Can You Explain Little bit More

It's not working that way in Excel

Rows and Columns have a different

set of nos. I don't know why.....

Col Width of 10 is lot more than

Row height of 10

I am cofused Please Explain Little More

about it

Thanks

Making Squares

--------------------------

One of the (many) frustrating things about Excel is that it uses different units of measurement to specify the height of rows and the width of columns.

Row height is pretty straightforward--it is measured in points. Column width, however, is measured in character widths. If your Standard style is set to Courier 10, then a column width of 12 means that you can fit exactly twelve characters in a given column. For proportional fonts, the character 0 is used to count the characters. (Yup, it's absurd.)

This leads to problems if you want the height and width of a

particular cell to match, thereby making a square. Fortunately, with a little macro wizardry you can bypass this oddity of Excel and achieve the desired results. Consider the MakeSquare macro:

Sub MakeSquare()

Dim WPChar As Double

Dim DInch As Double

Dim Temp As String

Temp = InputBox("Height and width in inches?") DInch = Val(Temp)

If DInch > 0 And DInch < 2.5 Then

For Each c In ActiveWindow.RangeSelectio

WPChar = c.Width / c.ColumnWidth

c.ColumnWidth = ((DInch * 72) / WPChar)

Next c

For Each r In ActiveWindow.RangeSelectio

r.RowHeight = (DInch * 72)

Next r

End If

End Sub

This macro prompts you for the dimension of the square you want to create, and then calculates exactly how wide and high to set each cell. You can run the macro with a single cell selected, or you can make a larger selection set.

The "math magic" is done in the calculating of the WPChar variable. This is set to a value derived by dividing the width of the column in points (returned by the Width property) by the width of the column in characters (returned by the ColumnWidth property). This value, which is the number of points in a character at the current settings, is then used to calculate how many characters should be used to set the width in the next program line.

for the Square Macro

What I was trying to achieve

was to print Labels in Excel

instead of Word So I can use my Excel

data but unfortunately it seams

immpossible to format the rows and

columns to print Labels

Thanks again for all effort.....

a) Mail merge your Excel data into Word and then use its Label feature. Please ask another question if you need assistance on this matter.

b) Not recommended but feasible: With some try and error you can format a worksheet such that the cell(s) will be printed ok. Whether you use one cell per label (*) or one cell per line is a matter of personal preference, I would take the latter unless you data structure does not allow it.

(*) Use the "&" operator (or the CONCATENATE function) to gather the data. Format the cell as word wrapping. As most probably the line breaks are not where you want them, use the following trick: In one cell, say A2, focus the formula bar and press Alt+Enter. This is equivalent to Shift+Enter in Word. Then use &$A$2 (or $A$2) to enforce wrapping.

1 twip = 1/1440 pouce (inch)

So... 72 points = 1 inch

You also posted your question twice so you should go to the other question and withdraw it.
