How do I keep my font size consistent?

Hello there. I have several different worksheets I am working with, and they have varying numbers of columns on them. For example, one sheet has 10 columns and another only has 4 columns. I want the columns to fill the page in a landscape view when printed out. The trouble I am having is that when I make the columns fit the page, it changes the size of my font to compensate for the stretching and compressing. This results in large font on the sheets with small numbers of columns, and smaller font size on the sheets with more columns.

Is there a way to make the columns fit the page, but keep the font size consistent throughout the worksheet?


Thanks in advance!

Remove leading & trailing spaces
Save as CSV to remove all leading and trailing spaces. It is faster than using TRIM().

Hi Dan,

Welcome to the board.

Certainly not a way I've heard of,
the only way is to experiment with the font sizes on each page until your happy that they are all of similar 'print' size.

FYI, It doesn't change the size of the Font, YOU change the size of the percentage of the Font.

That's what I was afraid of. I was hoping there would be some way to keep it consistent without having to manually adjust it over the life of the document.


Thanks again,
