Printing Reports

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated March 12, 2016)

Printing a report you have defined with the Report Manager is both quick and easy. Just follow these steps:

  1. Select the Report Manager option from the View menu. Excel displays the Report Manager dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Report Manager dialog box.

  3. Select a report from the list of defined reports.
  4. Click on the Print button. Excel displays the Print dialog box.
  5. Use the controls in the dialog box to specify the parameters you want used when printing, such as the number of copies.
  6. Click your mouse on the OK button. Excel saves the current condition of the workbook and starts printing the report sections.

As Excel is printing your report, you are kept informed on the status bar, of each step being performed. When the printing is complete, you are returned to your workbook, exactly where you were before you started to print the report.
