RE: Excel Subscripts

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Drew's got the right point about concatenation, but the subscript part is a 
 bit more difficult. You would probably have to run a macro something like:

With ActiveCell.Characters(Start:=x, Length:=y).Font
        .Subscript = True
End With

Where "x" is the starting position of the character you want to make 
subscript and "y" is the number of characters you want to subscript.

Have fun with that!

To me, it would be easier just to highlight the characters you wanted to 
subscript and hit the subscript function. I only use subscripts for names, 
not results.

Do any of the resident Excel experts here know how to append a calculated 
number to an alphanumeric character as a subscript?  For example, a wind 
load is calculated for 3 different conditions so that there are 3 different 
 answers to be appended to W as a subscript.
