You may have a need at times to print out a group of selections from different worksheets and have them appear on a single sheet of paper. Perhaps the easiest way to do this is to simply set up a "consolidation" worksheet that you would actually use for your printing. Follow these general directions:
Figure 1. The Paste Special dialog box.
The one big drawback to this approach is that if the worksheets from which you are copying have radically different formatting, you may not be able to merge them into a consolidated worksheet satisfactorily. (You will need to adjust the formatting in the consolidation sheet after pasting the different ranges.) In this case you may need to adjust formatting to get exactly the effect you desire.
