Copy Column Widths

Reader rating: 7 out of 10


Note: This How-To Article only applies to Microsoft Excel 2000 and above.

If you need to make several columns with the same width, you will find that this is difficult to do. Excel 2000 has a new feature that allows you to copy and paste a column width.

Copy Column Widths

1. Right-click the cell that has the column width that you would like to copy to other cells.

2. From the menu that appears, select "Copy".

3. Highlight the cells (or click the single cell) that you would like to copy the width to.

4. Right-click these highlighted cells and select "Paste Special..." from the menu that appears.

5. Click the "Column widths" selection box.

6. Click OK.

7. The column widths will now be pasted.

8. To finish, just double-click the cell that you originally copied to stop the copying process. (This will stop the paste function, and bring Excel back to normal mode.)
