Default How to preserve cell size when pasting between worksheets?

How do I preserve the cell size of the source worksheet when doing a copy and
paste to another worksheet?

Default How to preserve cell size when pasting between worksheets?

If there is a way, I've never been able to find it. Cell formatting just
does not include column width, which I guess makes sense.
Couple of things you can do instead:
Maybe just copy the sheet and delete unwanted portions, instead of selecting
and copying to new worksheet. When you copy the entire sheet, you get column
widths, too!
Or, fill across worksheets to copy and while you have the sheets grouped set
the column width. You're still having to set them for the other sheet, if
there's just one, but you can use the original as a guide AND they'll at
least both be the same!
Good luck - have fun!
