This code only displays part of the last column, it's not wide enough
Sub SetGridWidth()
    Dim i As Integer
    Dim iWidth As Long
    Dim LineWidth As Integer
    LineWidth = 20
    
    For i = 0 To gridStats.Cols - 1
    With gridStats
    iWidth = iWidth + .ColWidth(i) + LineWidth
    End With
    Next i
    gridStats.Width = iWidth

The width of your columns are given in twips, however the width of the control will be in the units as defined by form.scalemode.

Also, it wont work if the font is different in each cell

You can set it at runtime by using

Form1.ScaleMode = vbtwips
