Macro or Function to make text size to suite text Length?
I would like to find Macro or Function that will make text size to suite
eg. if the first cell has "bill smith" then the text size would be 10.
But if you had "Christina Vandermear" then the text size would be as small
as 7 in order to fit in that same size cell.
I know it's a bit of an odd request, but is there a way to do that? thanks
only possible with VBA. You may download the following addin for this
extension of the conditional format (as Excel's build in format can't change
the font size):

I have a series of excel documents being sent to me over a period of
time, and I would like to import this information into one sheet
automatically. The documents being sent to me are all identically
designed, so importing is no problem.
Here is an example of what I am receiving:
ALPHA 1 0 0 1 1
BETA 2 1 0 1 0
OMEGA 0 0 1 0 2
Each line represents a single excel doc I get back. ALPHA, BETA, etc
are the names of the people who sent it in. The filenames are always

I'm sorry but i posted this already in programming. Yet i noticed the
remark that it would be better to post it here. As it isn't the most
simple question around.
I tried to use the worksheet change functions, yet they only seem to
act when you actively enter into a certain cell.
However i need to call a certain macro when the output in a certain
cell changes due to the change in the specific if function. Therefore
without user intervention.
Is there any way to do this?

I also have a pivot table based on this worksheet.

I've tried naming the input range, then using a macro to update the
extent of the range and using that to update the pivot, but it never

...How can I get Dictionaries for Office XP?
I find vague references online to to an "Office XP Proofing tools" but the
online stores seem to have no references to it - only Office 2003 Proofing

No, they are not compatible. If you can still find Office 2003 Proofing
Tools online, then I would advise upgrading to Office 2003 so you could use
Office 2003 Proofing Tools. You have very little chance of finding Office
