Excel/VBA rewrite

Question
Hi Tom

I have recorded the following three pieces of code.  When activated the size of the font in the ranges increase or decrease to a specific size.

Is it possible to write two pieces of code?  The first will increase the size of the font in the given ranges by 3 points every time the code is activated.  The second to decrease the size of the font by 3 points every time the code is activated.

Thanks in advance

Chris

'    Range("B8").Activate
  With Range("B1:G7,I1:N7,I8:N14,B8:G14").Font
      lsize = .Size + 3
      .Name = "Calibri"
      .Size = lsize
      .Strikethrough = False
      .Superscript = False
      .Subscript = False
      .OutlineFont = False
      .Shadow = False
      .Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone

Sub DecreaseFontSize()

dim lsize as long

' largetext Macro

Call UnProtectMe

'    Range("B1:G7,I1:N7,I8:N14,B8:G14").Select
'    Range("B8").Activate

      lsize = .Size - 3
      .Name = "Calibri"
      .Size = lsize
      .Strikethrough = False
      .Superscript = False
      .Subscript = False
      .OutlineFont = False
      .Shadow = False
      .Underline = xlUnderlineStyleNone
      .Color = RGB(255, 255, 255)

  End With
'    Range("U13").Select
  
  Call ProtectMe
  
End Sub


I didn't put in any protections so don't run it if the size will go negative.

Code is untested, but I would expect it to work.

You can actually remove attributes you are not changing and not use the lsize variable.
example:

Sub IncreaseFontSize()

Call UnProtectMe

  With Range("B1:G7,I1:N7,I8:N14,B8:G14").Font
      .Size = .Size + 3
  End With

  Call ProtectMe
  
End Sub
