How do I set a listbox or combo box's column widths in VBA using twips?

1 Solution

AFAIK, you can't. This is managed by user settings on the machine.

You can build functions that translate those, of course. Just divide your Twips value by 1440, which is the approximate number of Twips in 1 inch. So if you determine that you need a column that is 500 Twips wide, then a second that is 800 Twips wide:

Me.MyListbox.ColumnWidths = (500/1440) & ";" & (800/1440)
