I know this on a PC. It is Alt+O,C,A, as explained in this question.

Can someone tell me please what the keyboard shortcut is to fit the column width to the width of the text in Excel on a Mac?

I'm using the 2011 version.

I don't have my Macbook with me so I can't confirm if this is possible, but have you tried assigning a custom keyboard shortcut to it? I believe Autofit Column Width should be under Format. –  Ellesa Mar 21 '13 at 17:21
Thanks for a good idea! Unfortunately 'Autofit Column Width' wasn't in there (under 'Format'). I set a shortcut that pops a window asking me to type a width in inches. I'm still looking for an Autofit solution. –  Nelu Malancea Mar 21 '13 at 18:20
