I am using a automatic script to move my mouse and click on stuff.

I need my excel cells to stay the same hight regardless of what stupid stuff I do to my spreadsheet.

I dont know if there is a direct way of stopping the row height being changed, but this

Sheets("Sheet1").Rows.AutoFit

or

Sheets("Sheet1").Rows.RowHeight = 15

dropped into one of the worksheet or workbook events, perhaps Worksheet_Activate

will quickly resize them

Or you  could hide the row and column header completely, which makes it quite hard to resize them

    ActiveWindow.DisplayHeadings = False

Lock it ... not particularly well but with some VBA we can force it back!

The change event handler for the sheet as below resets the row to a fixed value ... 22.5 for example with every change.

As you can see it is applied to row 6 but this is adaptable as required.

Chris
Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
    Me.Rows(6).RowHeight = 22.5
End Sub

Open in new window
