AutoFit Columns in Excel Sheet Export

I need to Auto Fit a sheet of columns after they are exported. Can anybody help me on this.

should only be one line or two?

Below is the code I have.

Excerpt:

'//VBA Works, but not here since its VBScript

Cells.Select

    Cells.EntireColumn.Autofit

'// Worksheets(“Loaned Still Out Report").Columns(A:I).AutoFit

Full script

'// ****************************************************************

'// Export of multiple objects in different formats (data & image)

'// In one case (sheet "Sales Overview") two objects are placed on

'// one sheet.

'// ****************************************************************

sub exportToExcel_Variant3

Dim aryExport(2,3)

aryExport(0,0) = "CH178"

aryExport(0,1) = "Asset Value Chart"

aryExport(0,2) = "A1"

aryExport(0,3) = "image"

aryExport(1,0) = "CH179"

aryExport(1,1) = "Asset Value Chart"

aryExport(1,2) = "A25"

aryExport(1,3) = "image"

aryExport(2,0) = "CH180"

aryExport(2,1) = "Loaned Still Out Report"

aryExport(2,2) = "A1"

aryExport(2,3) = "data"

Dim objExcelWorkbook 'as Excel.Workbook

Set objExcelWorkbook = copyObjectsToExcelSheet(ActiveDocument, aryExport)

'VBA Works, but not here since its VBScript

Cells.Select

    Cells.EntireColumn.Autofit

'Worksheets(“Loaned Still Out Report").Columns(A:I).AutoFit

'// Now either just leave Excel open or do some other stuff here

'// like saving the excel, some formatting stuff, ...

end sub

'// copyObjectsToExcel

'// Parameters:

'// qvDoc - Reference to the QlikView document (normally just use

'// "ActiveDocument", but you can also use copyObjectsToExcel

'// outside of QlikView ...

'// aryExportDefinition - array of settings

'// ~~

'// Version 1.02

'// ~~

'// The aryExportDefinition is used to pass the following properties to

'// copyObjectsToExcelSheet:

'//

'//   Index Description

'// ------------------------

'// 0 - Id of the QlikView object to copy from

'// 1 - Name of the sheet (in Excel) where the object should be copied to

'//

'// (If a sheet with the same name already exists no new

'// sheet will be created, instead the existing sheet will

'// be used for pasting the object)

'//

'// Note: the sheetName can be max 31 characters long

'//

'// 2 - Range in Excel where the object should be pasted to

'// 3 - PasteMode ["data", "image"]

'// Defines if the objects underlaying data should be

'// pasted ("data") or the the image representing the object

'// should be used

Hi

Set obj = ActiveDocument.GetSheetObject("CH02")

    

     XLApp.ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(2).Activate

   

        obj.CopyTableToClipboard true

        XLApp.ActiveWorkbook.Sheets(2).Range("A1").Select

        XLDoc.Sheets(2).Paste()

       

  

        set Selection =   XLDoc.Sheets(2).Columns("A:N")

With Selection

.Borders.ColorIndex = 0

.EntireRow.RowHeight = 12.75

.AutoFit

  

End With
