I have a cell that I want to change font size to be as large as possible to fill cell height.
But, I want the font size to change when I have more characters.
Example.... I want cell height and width to maintain, but there are too many characters.
So, we need to reduce font size.  (I am using column C for the data, and the putting in column A by =C3)
cell size cannot change, but I want to change font size automatically
Hope this makes sense.
Thanks

Maybe this......

Sub SetFontSizeToAutofit()
With Range("A:A")
   .WrapText = False
   .ShrinkToFit = True
End With
End Sub
