Re: How to resize columns and rows in Excel

After selecting the column, if you press alt+h, then o, then I Excel will choose the proper width for the column, based on the widest cell.

Hello everyone,



I wanted to know how to resize columns and rows in MS Excel.



When we enter text in a cell in Excel, at times the text overflows out of
the cell. Depending on whether the adjacent cell has any text, the
overflowing text either is displayed or disappears behind the contents of
the adjacent cell. In either of the two cases, JAWS will read the complete
content of the text, and so, a JAWS user may not understand if the text is
appearing properly on the screen. I wanted to know if there is any way to
resize the column such that the cell is wide enough to display the text
completely. At the same time, how does one know that the new size of the
column is not excessively wide such that the worksheet appears poorly
formatted.



I am aware of the wrap text formatting option of Excel, and would
appreciate
if an alternative approach is suggested by the group.



Lastly, is there any way to resize the rows in this fashion too?

Re: How to resize columns and rows in Excel

paul lemm
 

Hi,

It would depend which version of excel your using. If its 2010 then you go
to the home menu, then cells, then format, then auto fit either row or Colum
depending on which one you want to change.

I think for older versions of excel (the versions before the ribbon
toolbars) you go to the format menu and it's been a while since I've used
the older versions but I think there is a cells option in there somewhere
with the auto fit options.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Paul Lemm

Dear Friend,

In Excel 2007, press Alt + H followed by O & I for adjusting column width.
Press Alt + H followed by O & A to adjust row width.

The above commands will increase the column/ row width to fit the largest amount of data appearing in that particular column/ row.

Press alt to get to the home tab.
Down arrow to the edit submenu and open it with right arrow or enter.
Arrow to 'fill button, drop down' and press spacebar.
Arrow to series and press spacebar.

You are now in the fill dialog,.

FS told me in an email that they have been made aware of no problems with
IE10 and Win7 using JAWS 14. I alerted them to a couple of potential

this combination, but they are ready to address problems that arise.

If you are running the latest Build of JAWS 14 and all the windows Update
for Win 7, you should have no trouble with Internet Explorer 10.
There is very little difference if you are currently using Internet Explorer
9.

You can obtain a recording of the Webinar held yesterday, 3/13/2013 from
Freedom Scientific on Internet Explorer 10 with JAWS 14. Go to the Training
Webinar page to request a copy.
