Excel gives you complete control over how it prints your worksheets. If desired, you can print more than one copy of your information. To print multiple copies, follow these steps:

  1. Display the Print dialog box. (See Figure 1.) The easiest way to do this is to just press Ctrl+P.
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. In the Number of Copies box, indicate the number of copies that you want to print.
  4. In the Print Range and Print What areas of the dialog box, specify what you want to print.
  5. Check the status of the Collate option.
  6. Click on OK.
