    Hey

    I Office 2004 on my mac. I need to change the column sizes in pixels instead of inches,cm, or mm for my engineering course. Does anyone know how to change the units to pixels, download an update, or convert the measurements.

    Thanks,
    BlizZ

    The simple answer is no. It doesn't make sense for it to measure it in pixels either since it's for documents. Printers don't print in terms of pixels. It has no idea what they are. pixels are only for the screen.

    What are you trying to accomplish? Are you going to take a snapshot of some cells and make a image of it or something? There's likely a better way to accomplish what you need, just state what you're trying to accomplish overall.

    Yeah, that's a weird request, especially coming from an engineering instructor. That should make the Dilbert in any good engineer cringe. :eek:

    Can you please explain what you were asked to do?
