Property Value

Type Description

A Double value that is the number of characters that can be accommodated in a column width when a column is formatted with the built-in Normal style.


Use the DefaultColumnWidthInCharacters, Worksheet.DefaultColumnWidthInPixels or Worksheet.DefaultColumnWidth property to set the width of worksheet columns whose width is not specified explicitly. If you need to set the width of all columns on the worksheet to the same value and override all previously applied column width settings, use the CellRange.ColumnWidthInCharacters property of the Row object corresponding to any row on a worksheet.

For more information on how to change the height of rows and the width of columns, see the How to: Specify Row Height or Column Width example.
