Hi. I am using the following code to ass a ComboBox to every cell in a selection.
I need the cells to fit properly but they aren't as shown in the picture. How do I get them to fit properly

Sub ControlToCell()
     
    Dim iLeft As Integer
    Dim iTop As Integer
    Dim iWidth As Integer
    Dim iHeight As Integer
    Dim cell As Range
     
    For Each cell In Selection
       
        cell.Select
        iLeft = ActiveCell.Left
        iTop = ActiveCell.Top
        iWidth = ActiveCell.Width
        iHeight = ActiveCell.Height
         
          ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Add(ClassType:="Forms.ComboBox.1", Link:=False _
        , DisplayAsIcon:=False, Left:=iLeft, Top:=iTop, Width:=iWidth, Height:= _
        iHeight).Select
       
       
    Next cell
     
End Sub

Try adding a pixel (I think they're pixels, might be points) or two to the width and height.

This is what I use with my DynamicDV! utility:http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Office_Productivity/Office_Suites/MS_Office/Excel/A_6429-Part-II-Drop-Down-List-with-Unique-Distinct-Values-ComboBox-ListBox-and-Data-Validation-List-Bonus.html

Dim cboTemp As OLEObject
Dim Target As Range

    Set Target = Range("A15")
   
    Set cboTemp = ActiveSheet.OLEObjects.Add(classtype:="Forms.ComboBox.1")
    cboTemp.Name = "TempCombo"
       
           
    With cboTemp

        .Visible = True
        .Left = Target.Left
        .Top = Target.Top
        .Width = Target.Width + 5
        .Height = Target.Height + 5

    End With
