When your Microsoft Office Excel 2003 worksheet is completed, you can preview and print its contents. While previewing the worksheet, you might find that rows of data might flow better on one page or the other. You can insert page breaks to control what you print on each page. You can change the orientation of the page from the default of portrait (vertical) to landscape (horizontal). This is helpful when you have wide or multiple columns that would look better on one page. You can also adjust your margins to better fit the worksheet on the page. Previewing a worksheet before printing saves you time and money by not printing unnecessary copies.
After you make layout adjustments you can add headers and footers on the page. Headers are typically a descriptive title about your worksheet or workbook. Footers can include date printed, page numbers , or other company related information. You can add additional elements to your printout by showing gridlines or column letter and row numbers.
To print a worksheet, you can set the print area when you customize worksheet printing or any time when you are working on a worksheet. For example, you might want to print a different range in a worksheet for different people. After you set the print area, you can choose to print your worksheet. The Print dialog box allows you to customize all the options and more, and then you can send your worksheet or entire workbook to the printer.
