One Tall Solution

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS

Q: When printing large worksheets in Excel 2003, is there an easy trick to figuring out how many pages tall the print job needs to be to ensure that my worksheet prints out as wide as possible on the page, but no wider? I usually set the page width to one page, and then use the trial-and-error method to figure out how many pages tall the print job needs to be.

 

A: Yes, there is an easy solution. Leave the tall box blank in Page Setup, and Excel will automatically calculate the number of pages tall the report needs to be to print your worksheet based on the number of pages wide you specify.

 

Note: The Excel 2010 and 2007 Print dialog boxes both provide the menu option Fit All Columns on One Page that accomplishes the same result.
