convert cell sizes to inches
I'm using Excel 2003. Is there a formula I could use to set my cells to a certain size in inches. i.e. if I wanted a cell to be 2"x3", how could I figure that out so each cell would be the size I want?

Interesting. How exact do you want this? What I would do, rather than mess about with code, is draw a rectangle, set it's "Object positioning" property (Format > AutoShape) to "Don't move or size" and it's size to whatever, & then use it as a guide.

You can have an AutoShape snap to cell borders by holding down ALT while dragging it around, if that helps. & I read that for row heights, 72pts =1 inch, if that helps too.
