_So far i know, Excel doesn't have an option to set column width, row height, or cell size in pixels directly because Excel primarily uses other units of measurement like characters and points.

However, you can get a rough idea of cell size in pixels by using the following information:

1. Zoom Level: Excel's default zoom level is 100%. At this zoom level, Excel generally assumes that one character (the width of the "0" character) is approximately 7-8 pixels wide.
2. Character Width: You can estimate the pixel width of a cell by considering the number of characters that can fit in a cell. For example, if you have a cell with a width of 10 characters, you can roughly estimate its width as 70-80 pixels (assuming 7-8 pixels per character).
3. Row Height: Excel allows you to set the height of a row in points. One point is roughly equivalent to 1/72 of an inch. On a standard 96 DPI screen, this is roughly equivalent to 1.33 pixels.
4. Column Width: Excel allows you to set the width of a column in characters, but as mentioned earlier, you can estimate the pixel width based on the number of characters.

Please note that these estimates can vary depending on your screen resolution and Excel settings. You can use these approximations as a starting point for your designs. If you need precise control over cell sizes in pixels, you might need to consider using other software like graphics programs. The text was created with the help of AI.

I set the units of measurement in Excel to inches, millimeters, or centimeters.

Then, I used this converter to calculate the conversion from desired pixels to the unit type selected in Excel:

Scroll down the page to find other units of conversion.
