Printing More than One Copy

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) or the print options (later versions of Excel). 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.

Hi Shirley,
I have to print items for my tennis club in various sizes such as A4, 6x4 index card, half A4(297mm x 105mm for a narrow clipboard)

I was able to create custom sizes in the printer dialogue box and save them with unique names, such as A4 poster/6x4 Membership card/Narrow Clipboard.

However I can't save a custom size and colour option but the printer is an October 2008 model.

Hopefully your printer will allow you to save custom size/colour options.

Hope this helps?

Hi
I often have to print several pages of a workbook in colour, but I have to get the print set up for each sheet. Is there a way of selecting colour prints for all the individual sheets I need ?

Thanks
