Can one say
a. What he said made me happier than at any other time in my entire life.
?

Does it mean
1. What he said made me happier than I'd ever been.
or
2. What he said made me happier than anything he'd ever said.
?

Many thanks

It means 1.

If you want to say something similar and have meaning 2, I would suggest:

What he said then (or - at that time) made me happier than at any other time (or - in our entire life together).
