Chapter 12. Inserting and Removing Cells... > Adjusting Column Width and Row Heigh...

Adjusting Column Width and Row Height with a Mouse

It doesn't take very long when you are working in Excel to realize that the default column width of 8.43 characters doesn't accommodate long text entries or values that have been formatted as currency or other numeric formats. You can adjust the width of a column quickly using the mouse.

You can also adjust row heights, if you want, using the mouse. However, your row heights will adjust to any font size changes that you make to data held in a particular row. Row heights also adjust if you wrap text entries within them (see Lesson 9, “Changing How Numbers and Text Look,” for more about wrapping text). You will probably find that you need to adjust column widths in your worksheets far more often than row heights.
