There is no direct way for you to change multiple row heights based on cell value at once, but, with the following VBA code, it can help you to finish this job as quickly as possible.

1. Hold down the ALT + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste the following code in the Module Window.

VBA code: Change the row height based on cell value:

Sub rowheight()
'Updateby Extendoffice
    Dim hgt As Variant
    Dim WorkRng As Range
    xTxt = ActiveWindow.RangeSelection.Address
    Set WorkRng = Application.InputBox("please select the data range:", "Kutools for Excel", xTxt, , , , , 8)
For Each H In WorkRng
        If H.Value > 15 Then
            hgt = H.Value
            Selection.rowheight = hgt
        End If
    Next H
End Sub

3. Then press F5 key to run this code, and a prompt box is popped out to remind you select the cells that you want to set the row height by the cell values, see screenshot:

4. And then click OK button, the row height has been changed by the cell value as follows:

Note: In above VBA code, If H.Value > 15 Then indicates that if the cell value greater than 15, the row height will be changed, if the cell value less than 15, the row height will be stayed the default height. You can change it as you need.
