In some cells on my sheet the data fits the cell. On some rows there is a lot of extra space after the data in each cell. I have tried deleting after at the end of the data, but it does not help. How do I size the cell to fit the data?

Can you provide more info, perhaps a link to the doc, or a link to an example spreadsheet? It's hard to tell what you mean just from the text. – OnenOnlyWalter Jan 7 '13 at 23:55

You can put the cursor on the column divider at the top and drag it to move the righthand border of the cells in the column.


Google Column before


Google Column after
