Re: Excel ghosts?

Hi Harry,
I use the auto fit selection, and it seems to work best for me.
First I select the column I want to set (control+space bar)
Alt O for the format menu
Arrow down to column, right arrow for the submenu, then arrow down to auto
fit, hit enter
Your done!  It looks at the column, and automatically auto adjust the width
of the entire column to fit the cell with the most information.  I like this
feature because I don't have to worry about counting characters or worrying
if the column is actually wide enough.  With this feature, the program does
all the work itself!
Hope this helps!
Chris Chaffin
