Printing Web Discussions

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated November 14, 2013)

If you are using the Web discussions feature available in Excel 2000, Excel 2002, and Excel 2003, you may periodically want to print the discussion comments related to a workbook. While it seems odd to print when the whole idea of discussions is to enable on-line interaction, there may be some off-site person who should see some comments. To print discussions, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the Discussions tool on the Discussions toolbar. Excel displays a menu of actions you can take.
  2. Choose Print Discussions. Excel displays the Print dialog box.
  3. Use the controls in the Print dialog box to specify the parameters for your print job.
  4. Click on OK. The discussion threads are printed on your printer.

You should note that all discussion threads are printed, so it is possible for the print job to be quite long if there are a lot of comments.
