I am trying to save an excel spreadsheet that I have set the column width - when I re-open it, the column width has gone back to the default.
Is there a way that I can get the file to maintain the specific column widths. I need to provide the results to other persons and they use it to upload to a third party vendor. The vendor is looking for the output in the specific formatting.

Thanks!

Hi pslady05

Are there any Open and Close macro's that act directly on that column or the one surrounding it. Excel wouldn't necessarily resize a column without being told to.
