Program Excel's Page-Order Print Sequence


Key to Instructions

To help readers follow the instructions in this article, we used two different typefaces:

Boldface type is used to identify the names of icons, agendas and URLs.

Sans serif type shows the names of files and the names of commands and instructions that users should type into the computer.

Most of my Excel worksheets don’t fit on a single page, so when I print them, the sequence is important; if they print out of sequence, I spend loads of time putting the pages in order. How can I be sure the second page to print is the part of the sheet to the right of the first page or below it?

To control the sequence, click on File , Page Setup . Be sure you’re on the Sheet tab. At the bottom of the panel, right under Page order , make your selection: Either click on Down, then over (a graphic of that choice will appear to the right), or on Over, then down (and a graphic of that sequence will appear, too).

Then click on OK and proceed with your printing.
