Assuming 96 pixels per inch you could approximate but at different resolutions
your approximation can be off.

If you want to use VBA to set height and width in mm...........

Ole Erlandson has code for setting row and column dimensions.

Value of cell Defines Range

I can put the value for the row in column $C in a cell like D1 but I cannot think of a way to put that in the range automatically (See Example below). Any ideas? Example Range is =$A$1:$C$?. D1 contains the value of 8. So I want ...
