I am using autofilter to select certain numbers for editing a long list which is very wide. I am zoomed at 25% - and the list is very legible - but when I press the down arrow on the column I want to sort - the figures are so small as to be totally unreadable. A larger zoom scale improves the legibilty but makes the worksheet unmanagable. as I know what I am looking for in the filtered list is there anyway I can type in the number on the list I require - or otherwise make it legible at the screen zoom scale I want to use?

Hi there
You could make yourself a macro button with code like this:

Put the number you wish to filter in B1 (or change code to suite). Select a cell in the filter range and click button

Selection.AutoFilter Field:=Selection.Column(), Criteria1:=Range("B1").Value


hope this helps
regards
Derek

Hi again
Ah, the above macro requires your autofilter range to begin from Column A, if not you will need to change the formula to specify which field you wish to filter eg Field:=1

Hello,
Not sure if you can manipulate the size of the drop down list directly, however you could make a small form with a combobox referenced to the column you wish to filter(Even removing dupelacates if you wish)with a comand button to filter the selection you make. That way You can set the font size etc..of the combobox. There may be better ways....
Regards Ron
