Repeating Rows on a Printout Except On the Last Page

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

Export (Copy Paste the data to word and then choose and Right-click inside the first row of the table and choose Table Properties. In the Table Properties screen, click the Row tab if it is not already selected. Select the option to <Repeat as header row at the top of each page>. Click OK to confirm your selection.
Be aware that you won't notice any difference to your table if the table doesn't currently span more than one page. You may want to add extra rows to the table just to be sure.
Note that you can choose more than one row in your table. This means that multiple rows from the top of your table will repeat on each page. If you want to configure more than one row as the heading for your table, simply select the first row and any additional rows, then repeat the steps above. Note that you can select as many rows as you want, but you MUST include the first row of the table for this to work.

Is it possible to print the title rows on all but the FIRST page?
