Enlarge data view

Hi Experts,

I would like to request Experts help. Currently I’m using Data Validation method for selecting data at Column A,B,K,L,M,N,W and X based on Listing sheet. The problem is the dropdown lists are extremely small to see. It that possible to write a script to enlarge the display so that we can see this list more clearer for selection? Hope Expert can help me to create this feature.

Attached the workbook for Experts perusal.

It's not possible to change the size of the data validation font.  You could theoritically ZOOM on the page, which does increase the font size, but also increases the size of everything else.

You font size is very large and to see most things at once you zoom out. I suggest to change the font size of all cells and reduce the size of the rows and columns which will make as if the size of dropdown increased. See the excel file attached.

This code at the worksheet level will cause the workbook to zoom to 200% when on a validation cell, and back to 100% when you move off it....It's a little disorienting though:-)

Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
Dim test As String

On Error Resume Next

test = Target.Validation.Type

If Err.Number = 1004 Then
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = 100
Else
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = 200
End If

End Sub

Hi,

Apology for the late respond.  I have modified my workbook as suggested by srikanthkotha. However, when print the font size was extremely small. Is that a way for us to set the font size (15) and width (18) of the rows (A13:A42) only for print page ? Hope Expers could help me with this.
