A Dot matrix display


After reading a entry on my friend Dick Kusleika's blog about pixilation I was compelled to construct this example. 
The responses he received to his follow-up blog entry were a pleasant surprise
The display is constructed from a standard xy chart. All of the chart data is calculated via worksheet formula. The displays movement is manually controlled through a scrollbar, although I have included a vba routine that can be copied to a code module and used to automate the scrolling.
You can also construct you own typeface via the Alphabet worksheet. The example below shows how the letter A was defined.
To build a new character you simply enter a 1 in the appropriate location of the 5 by 7 matrix
