Changing row heights and column widths
Changing row heights and column widths
When you create an Excel workbook, the default worksheet
rows are tall enough to accommodate text and numbers
entered in the standard character format (Calibri, 11 point) and
wide enough to display about eight characters. If your text takes
up too much space to fit in the cell (for example, because you’ve
changed the font size for a column label), you can widen the
column so that the contents of every cell can be seen. You can
also increase the height of rows in your worksheet to put some
space between values, which makes your data easier to read. If a
column is too wide or a row is too high, you can make it
narrower or shorter as needed.
Resize a row
1 Hover the mouse pointer over the lower boundary of the row that
you want to resize until the mouse pointer turns into a two-headed
arrow.
2 Drag the boundary until the row is the height you want.
