Row heights are measured in points.  There are 72 points to an inch.

The number that appears in the Standard column width box is the average number
of digits 0-9 of the standard font that fit in a cell. 

No relationship between the two.

If you want to use VBA to set height and width in mm....which can be converted
to inches....

Ole Erlandson has code for setting row and column dimensions.

When you have say a bar chart and drag the bar downwards this will change the value in the reference source cell.

Setting AutoNumber to Non-Default Value
I would like to use the AutoNumber data type within a field. However I would like the sequential autonumbering to begin from 6000 rather than the default value of 1(for the first record). Thanks for your help in advance. Jeff I suggest you may not want to use Autonumber for that use. Autonumbers are designed to provide unique numbers. It in not designed to provide numbers in order and for a number of reasons may not do so. As a result using them in any application where the user sees the numbers is likely to end up with confusion. There are other ways of providing the numbers...

worksheet_calculate event changes worksheets, but shouldn't
Hi, The code below is in the Sheet1 (Budget) Module: The user is entering data into the "Budget" worksheet. When this fires, it should hide some rows on the Categories worksheet. It does work ok, however, everytime a user enters a new figure on the Budget worksheet, it fires and momentarily flashes over to the Categories worksheet. It is quite distractive, especially when one has hundreds of figures to enter. I set a trap to stop it on the top line of this code - the Private Sub Worksheet_Calculate() line. Then, when I enter a new number on the Budget page, it fi...

Future Value function with differenct cash flows
Excel does not seem to have a FV function or variant that allows you to compute the FV of different cash flows at regular periodic intervals given a constant rate. Is there such a function?

There are several work around solutions I can think of, but they tend to be cumbersome. ---------------- This post is a suggestion for Microsoft, and Microsoft responds to the suggest...
