VBA to change font size for cell with large text

Hi guys,

The following code works for a cell
If Len([C13]) > 27 Then [C13].Font.Size = 8 Else [C13].Font.Size = 9

however I need to cover a worksheet Range(C13:U500)

Please send the correct code.

Thank you,

Robert

Assuming you want to do this test on every cell in the range(C13:U500):

Sub changeFont()
Dim r As Range
Dim rng As Range

    Set rng = Range("C13:U500")
    
    For Each r In rng
        If Len(r.Value) > 27 Then
            r.Font.Size = 8
        Else
            r.Font.Size = 9
        End If
    Next r
End Sub

And then, try this:

Sub changeFontV3()
Dim r As Range
Dim rng As Range
Dim rChange As Range

    Set rng = Range("C13:U500")
    
    rng.Font.Size = 9
    For Each r In rng
        If Len(r.Value) > 27 Then
            If rChange Is Nothing Then
                Set rChange = r
            Else
                Set rChange = Union(rChange, r)
        End If
    Next r
    rChange.Font.Size = 8
End Sub

Are any of these faster?

Unless it gets VERY VERY large, the Union should be a pretty fast player.  I sometimes do that to "mark" ranges that I want to do something with like delete, or whatever - and it occurred to me it might speed you up with font changes.

Take care,
