Is it possible to make row height static in Excel 2010

I have differing row heights depending on the data contained in the rows.

Every time I insert a new row it changes other rows to the default height.

Is there a way to make row heights remain static?

Thanks

No, it can always be adjusted. There is no "lock" option on row heights.

You can stop users formatting rows, including height, by protecting the worksheet. I don't believe this will stop any auto adjustment though.

Use SelectionChange method:
Private Sub Worksheet_SelectionChange(ByVal Target As Range)
    Rows(3).RowHeight = 20
End Sub

Open in new window

In the Protect Sheet dialog, there are various options that the user can still do after protection is applied; one these is to allow users to insert rows.
