Printing More than One Copy

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated August 18, 2018)

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 (Excel 2007.) The easiest way to do this is to just press Ctrl+P. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. In the Copies box, indicate the number of copies you want to print.
  4. Set any other printing parameters you want, such as what you want printed and whether it should be collated or not.
  5. Click on OK.

If you are using Excel 2010 or a later version, CTRL+P displays the Print settings page. Follow the above steps to indicate the number of copies you want to print and with what printing parameters you desire. (See Figure 2.)
