How to Change Font Size of the Whole Sheet with Excel VBA (Step-by-Step Analysis)

Worksheet to Change Font Size of the Whole Sheet with Excel VBA

Our objective today is to change the font size of the worksheet using VBA in Excel.


1. Developing a Macro to Change the Font Size of a Single Whole Sheet with Excel VBA 

First, we’ll develop a Macro to change the font size of a single worksheet. We’ll learn the procedure through step-by-step analysis.

⧪ Step 1: Entering the Worksheet Name

First, we have to enter the worksheet name on which the font size will be changed. Here it’s Sheet1.

Sheet_Name = "Sheet1"

⧪ Step 2: Inserting the Font Size

Next, we’ll insert the new font size to which the font will be changed. Let’s change it to 20.

Font_Size = 20

⧪ Step 3: Changing the Font Size

This is the most important step. We’ll change the font size of the input worksheet to the given size.

Worksheets(Sheet_Name).Cells.Font.Size = Font_Size

Therefore, the complete VBA code will be:

⧭ VBA Code:

Sub Change_Font_Size_of_Single_Sheet()
Sheet_Name = "Sheet1"
Font_Size = 20
Worksheets(Sheet_Name).Cells.Font.Size = Font_Size
End Sub

2. Creating a Macro to Change the Font Size of Multiple Sheets with Excel VBA

We’ve learned to change the font size of a single worksheet. Now we’ll develop a Macro to change the font sizes of multiple sheets.

⧪ Step 1: Entering the Worksheet Names

First of all, we’ll create an array of the worksheet names whose font sizes will be changed. Here we’ll change the font sizes of Sheet1 and Sheet2.

Dim Sheet_Names() As Variant

Sheet_Names = Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2")

⧪ Step 2: Entering the Font Size

Next, we’ll enter the font size. Here it’s again 20.

Font_Size = 20

⧪ Step 3: Changing the Font Size

This is the most important step. We’ll iterate through a for-loop to change the font sizes of the given worksheets.

For i = LBound(Sheet_Names) To UBound(Sheet_Names)
    Worksheets(Sheet_Names(i)).Cells.Font.Size = Font_Size
Next i

So, the complete VBA code will be:

⧭ VBA Code:

Sub Change_Font_Size_of_Multiple_Sheets()

Dim Sheet_Names() As Variant
Sheet_Names = Array("Sheet1", "Sheet2")

Font_Size = 20

For i = LBound(Sheet_Names) To UBound(Sheet_Names)
    Worksheets(Sheet_Names(i)).Cells.Font.Size = Font_Size
Next i

End Sub

UserForm1.Caption = "Change Font Size"

UserForm1.ListBox1.ListStyle = fmListStyleOption
UserForm1.ListBox1.MultiSelect = fmMultiSelectMulti

UserForm1.ListBox2.ListStyle = fmListStyleOption

For i = 1 To Sheets.Count
    UserForm1.ListBox1.AddItem Worksheets(i).Name
Next i

For i = 0 To UserForm1.ListBox1.ListCount - 1
    If UserForm1.ListBox1.List(i) = ActiveSheet.Name Then
        UserForm1.ListBox1.Selected(i) = True
        Exit For
    End If
Next i

For i = 1 To 100
    UserForm1.ListBox2.AddItem i
Next i

Load UserForm1

UserForm1.Show
