Printing Multiple Pages On a Piece of Paper

You may want to print multiple pages of your Excel worksheet on a single piece of paper. You can accomplish this in Excel 2000 or later versions by following these steps:

  1. Choose Page Setup from the File menu. Word displays the Page Setup dialog box.
  2. Click on the Options button. Excel displays the printer's Properties dialog box.
  3. Look around through the available tabs to locate one that has a Pages Per Sheet control or a Multi-Page control. On my printer it is the Page Layout tab; on yours it may be different. (See Figure 1.)
  4. Figure 1. The Page Layout tab of a printer's Properties dialog box.

  5. Using the Pages Per Sheet control (or the Multi-Page control), specify how many pages you want printed on each sheet of paper.
  6. Click on OK to dismiss the printer's Properties dialog box.
  7. Click on OK to dismiss the Page Setup dialog box.
