Excel Facts

How can you turn a range sideways?
Copy the range. Select a blank cell. Right-click, Paste Special, then choose Transpose.

Hi there

Without protection, if you increase the font size the column is likely to increase in width to fit it. You might try selecting all cells and formatting them (Alignment tab) so that text will shrink to fit.
