Default FORMAT CELL TO MILLIMETERS

Certainly. What's in the cell right now? Meters, kilometers, millimeters,
micrometers? What's wrong with simply specifying whatever numeric format you
want?

Regards,
Fred.

Default FORMAT CELL TO MILLIMETERS

In the number format section you can create a custom format like this
0.0 "mm" and apply it to the desired cells

This will display the entered or calculated number to 1 decimal place with
the mm tag at the end (13.1 mm). It does not do any conversion or
calculations, just shows the units. You can use as many decimal places as
you desire.

You want the actual measurements of a cell to be in mm rather than points or
pixels?

The only way you can do that is through VBA.

Do you want to go that route?

If you want to use VBA to set height and width in mm.

Ole Erlandson has code for setting row and column dimensions.
