I attached an example of an Excel spreadsheet that has four columns of data that has Wrap Text enabled. These four columns must not exceed the width of one page as they will be printed.

I would like to see if there is a way, possibly with Visual Basic, for Excel to auto-size this group of wrap text columns so that they take up the least amount of pages.

For example, possibly by shortening the length of the Keyword column and lengthening the width of the Description column, this document can take up less pages. This spreadsheet has only a fraction of the rows that it will have once I am finished adding data, so by determining the perfect length of the columns I may be able to reduce the print out by several pages.
