Nancy knows how to format a worksheet so that rows are repeated at the top of each page of a printout. What she wants to do, however, is to have the rows repeated at the top of each printed page except the last one.
There is no direct way to do this, but you can simulate such a printing by using a macro to do the task. All you need to do is have the macro print all except your last page, then change the page setup so that rows are not repeated, and finally print the final page of the printout. The following macro provides an example of this approach.
Sub PrintWorksheet() Dim lPages As Long Dim sTemp As String lPages = Application.ExecuteExcel4Macro("GET.DOCUMENT(50)") With ActiveSheet.PageSetup ActiveSheet.PrintOut From:=1, To:=lPages - 1 sTemp = .PrintTitleRows .PrintTitleRows = "" ActiveSheet.PrintOut From:=lPages, To:=lPages .PrintTitleRows = sTemp End With End Sub
