    How can I auto adjust the printed page size with VBA?

    I have a tool that has a couple of macro buttons. One of these buttons adds a group of columns to the sheet. Another button then exports the excel sheet to a .pdf file. When exporting, the code only prints the original number of columns. How can I adjust the VBA code to capture all of the applicable columns?

    This is where your macro sets up your column static print area:

    Your sheet is loaded with "Merge & Center" cells. Accidents waiting to happen. Get rid of them and use "Center across Selection" instead. (Google it and you'll see what the experts think of it.)
    There are different ways to calculate your last used Column and Row.
    In your attachment you dont want to print up to the laste used Column because that is Column R which is used for the conversions.
    It looks like the best way would be to find the Column in row 24.
    If so, the last column could be calculated with

    If it needs to be another row, change the 24 to the row number that suit your needs the best. (NOT merged cells)
    If you have the conversion table in another sheet or all to the left of your print area, following would be the best way.

    For your last used row, it looks like there will always be data in Column A so the last used row is calculates as

    If there is never going to be anything below the area to be printed, you can use this also

    So your PrintArea would be like

    or equivalent.

    BTW. 20 meters is not 6.1 ft. The other way around is closer to the truth.

    Thanks for letting us know that it worked.

    These sites are to help people, just like you were helped.
    If you would look for help again, found a thread that had the same problem solved that you are looking to solve but they had deleted part of the explanation, in your case the attachment, would you be happy?
    I don't know why you decided to delete the attachment, I did not find anything personal in it, but you deprive other people from possibly being helped.

    Hey jolivanes, I had realized that I left company contact/address information in the sheet and didn't want that displayed. I will reupload a version without it. Sorry for the confusion.
