How to copy Column and or row format properties in excel

Hello Experts,

I am trying to copy the formatting properties in a column in one excel sheet onto another sheet in the same excel document. Is there a easy way to do this?. By format properties i mean the column height, width , etc..

Thank you.

You can use Paste Special (Clipboard Group on the Home Tab).  Highlight the range you want to copy, click on Paste Special and select Column Width (see attached image for a visual).

Select the whole column in your first sheet, copy it. Switch over to the other sheet, select the target column, then right-click it and choose "Paste Special". Choose "Formats".

More details here. It might take a second Paste Special to also change the column width, choosing the appropriate option.

If you want to copy and paste multiple special properties at the same time with a single command, a macro might be your solution.

Have you tried the format painter button just next to the paste button on the ribbon?
