Excel For Noobs Tutorial: How to Print a Single Worksheet Using Page Break Preview
Printing your workbook in Excel is pretty simple, but it isn’t as easy as you might think. As you know Excel has millions of cells and it would be impossible to print the content of an entire worksheet if it consist of multiple tables, charts and images. To get introduced to how to print in Excel let’s start with a simple example.
The most basic way to print in Excel is to print the current worksheet. But before you just go and print your worksheet, you need to make sure that part of the worksheet and any graphics such as charts won’t be cutoff with different parts printed on separate sheets of paper.
Take a look at the worksheet below. You can see that I have a table that consist of more rows than can fit on the screen and a chart lies to the right of the table. This chart, as you can see is also not entirely viewable. Now this might be okay if you are viewing the workbook on your computer, but if you want to print this worksheet out, you are going to have to make sure it actually fits properly on the printed sheets of paper.
Follow the steps below to learn how to properly print this Excel worksheet.
- Click on the View tab and in the Workbook Views group click Page Break Preview.
Now your Excel worksheet should have dotted lines at the end of the very last column that will fit on the printed page and at the bottom of the last row that will fit on the printed page. Each part of the worksheet that will be printed on its own sheet of paper is enclosed with these dotted lines. Each part will be labeled Page and a number such as Page 1, Page 2, Page 3 etc…
- Zoom out so that you can see the entire worksheet and all the pages.
- Now work with the table to try and make it fit properly within Page 1.
You can delete any unnecessary columns, resize the text and resize the column. For our example we simply deleted column A which effectively moved our table one column to the left. There really isn’t anything you can do about the length of the table but it is common for long list and tables to be printed on multiple worksheets so this shouldn’t be a factor.
- If you have any graphics such as charts and images try to resize and move them to make them fit on a single page. If this is not possible such as in our case, you can just print the chart alone which we will show you how to do later.
- Now go to File > Print and the Print Panel will appear. Choose the number of copies you want to print, the printer you want to use and then in the settings group select Print Active Worksheet.
- Click on the Print button and if your printer is setup properly your worksheet should print out.
