What This VBA Code Does

In this macro code I list out four different scenarios in which you can use VBA to automatically determine what your column widths should be.  Pick whichever scenario fits your needs and delete the others.

'AutoFit All Columns on Worksheet
  ThisWorkbook.Worksheets("Sheet1").Cells.EntireColumn.AutoFit
