Odd Behavior with Used Range Zoom Macro

Posted on 2014-10-10

Experts,

Please see the attached file and the below code:
Private Sub Workbook_SheetActivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
    ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Resize(ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Columns.Count).Select
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = True: ActiveWindow.VisibleRange(1, 1).Select
End Sub

Open in new window

Why does the zoom range set differently between sheet1 and sheet2 when some of the rows are different heights but it is the same number of used columns?

Is there a better way to write this? I would like for it to only set the active zoom based columns with used cells.....

use this instead of that

Sub UsedRangeZoom()
    'set zoom for active sheet to columns with data
Application.EnableEvents = True
    Application.WindowState = xlMaximized
    ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Select
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = True
End Sub

Open in new window

I got a runtime error 91 as soon as tired to open that file.
I've reattached your workbook with the bits of code not pertinent to this question disabled. Lets just focus on the Zoom issue not any of the environment things you are helping me on in another question....

For me your code doesn't set the zoom at all for used cells in the attached. Moreover your code doesn't even allow me to switch between sheet1 and sheet2.

Given that the "Used Range" is the same between both sheets why the difference just because sheet2 has some modified row heights?

Row Heights affects zoom range and that is why, there is difference.

Going back to my original need, I only want the zoom range to set based upon used COLUMNS, I do not want row heights to effect anything; my original code shouldn't behave that way yet it does....

You select the entire used range, and make the window zoom on that selection.
Then the rows also need to fit the window,
To only zoom on the columns, select the first row only.

So the macro will be

Private Sub Workbook_SheetActivate(ByVal Sh As Object)
    ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows(1).Select
    ActiveWindow.Zoom = True
    ActiveWindow.VisibleRange(1, 1).Select
End Sub

Open in new window
