Printing Multiple Pages On a Piece of Paper

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated August 1, 2015)

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

  1. Display the Page Layout tab of the ribbon.
  2. Click the small icon at the lower-right corner of the Page Setup group. Excel displays the Page Setup dialog box.
  3. Click on the Options button. Excel displays the printer's Properties dialog box.
  4. Look around through the available tabs to locate one that has a Pages Per Sheet control or a Multiple Page control. On my printer it is the Features tab; on yours it may be different. (See Figure 1.)
  5. Figure 1. The Features tab of a printer's Document Properties dialog box.

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