    What do you mean by "variables"? Are you talking about something on a worksheet (cells, rows, columns), or about variables in Visual Basic, or something else?

    A worksheet is always 256 columns and 65,536 rows (Excel 95 through Excel XP), and that can't be changed. Workbook size is a function of used cells and what the cells contain, constrained by memory used and available memory. If this doen't answer your question, post back.
