My macro selects cells containing data - then i want the macro to set the print area to those selected cells - works fine - but the selected cells won't be the same each time i run the macro. Here's how it looks now:
I have a document which will require signatures after printed and want to keep the signature portion at the bottom of the page (currently rows 102-104). The problem is that the document will not need to be that long for every person and was wondering if it would be possible to have a macro that checks (C7:C:100), stops printing when it reaches the blank cells, and then prints those last 2 rows?
The macro below works perfectly except for one problem. I only want it to set the print area from Column A - Column M . It currently selects data i have in Columns N and beyond and i do not need that to print. From A - M is 13 columns.
I need a macro to select the area within the blue invoice sheet box, so everything within the blue invoice sheet box is selected , and then the selection should be printed. I will have hundreds of these invoice slips made, right below each other, i was wondering once this is done, is there an easier way to to have each invoice selected, instead of making a custom button for each sheet ( which selects just that invoice , and prints that selection ).
( Column m through v, starting at row 2 stoping at row 68, is the selection required in this example, everythign within the blue box. ).
I'm looking for a way to set the print area based on the value of a cell. I have a worksheet that prints a 12-page document, with data pulled from separate sheets. At the bottom of these twelve pages is an additional 2-page section that I only need in certain instances.
For example, if a cell (let's call it A1) on Sheet1 says "brown," I need the print area set to include these additional pages. If that same cell ('Sheet1'!A1) reads "yellow," however, I don't need to include the 2 pages in the print area.
I have a report that has a set template except that the number of columns change.
I have 3 rectangular shapes with text boxes inside each rectangle. The Shapes take up space vertically between row 8 and 15. In some reports the columns will change, the size of columns might change due to longer text. Is there a macro that will select all the shapes and text boxes and center them column wise between the print area?
I am looking to create a macro that will ask the user to define the row number of the beginning and ending locations that they would like to print. The columns are fixed in that the first starting row will be from column A and the ending row will be column M.
I have built a pipe tally used in the oilfield that keeps track of large amounts of pipe figures but very often is the case that there is the need to print a section of the tally data in reference to a certain depth. With the vast knowledge base located here I was able to build the first macro that prints the whole active tally but now I need something more refined.
Below is one of the copies of the macro that I was trying to get to work and it is missing a couple of things but the most important part shows up and that is how to get the inputbox variables into the defined print area.
Sub TallyVariable() Dim StartRow As String Dim EndRow As String StartRow = InputBox("Please Enter Starting Row you would like to print") EndRow = InputBox("Please Enter Last Row you would like to print") ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "A" & StartRow.Address:"M" & EndRow.Address End Sub
We run a small gardening shop and use a simple spreadsheet to track of various things.
Row A contains headers, with the data following in the rows underneath. This table is now quite large, and we therefore hide 600 or so rows so that only rows with data from the last week is shown. We often need to print this for easy reference. I currently do this by highlighting the area I want and setting it as print area. The print therefore doesn't include hidden cells, which is what I need.
The problem we have, therefore, is that we have to manually select this print area each time. My experience with macros is VERY limited, to the point where I can record one which will select the print area and print. However, as the list gets longer and more rows are hidden the range obviously needs to change, and my simple macro will not keep up.
So my question is as follows. Is there a simple macro I could write to assign to a button that could "keep up" with the moving range? So either it always prints the header row and the, for example, 50 rows beneath (exlcuding the hidden ones), or, even better, it prints the header row and all rows with data in them that are relevant to the last week. Each row has a cell for the date it concerns so assume this may be possible?
I need to write a macro to set the print area to the first two columns (A & B), and the last 12 columns (the last column may change). In both cases I need to print all rows (start is row 1, last row is variable). I am trying to achieve something like the "Freeze Pane" effect with the printer. The first two rows contain column headers (dates). The first two columns contain information that needs to be included on the printout, whilst the last 12 columns contain the most recent data. Various cells withing the selected ranges may be blank, but no row or column will be entirely blank.
How can I print 2 selected area (highlighted area). I know there is a trick to do that. Right now I can only select (highlight) one area to print, but would like to know how to print 2 or more areas at same time
Trying to put together a macro that looks down active sheet for all cells that contain a value, sets a print area and then prints !
Is this possible?
FYG, I have a column that run from 3 - 2000, which contains a formula, which may produce a value depending on corresponding cells.
I used this code from a post on a similar topic, but excel is complaining code in bold
Private Sub Print_Area_Click() Dim lastCell As Range Set lastCell = Cells.SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Offset(1, 0) Do Until Application.Count(lastCell.EntireRow) 0 Set lastCell = lastCell.Offset(-1, 0) Loop ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = Range(Cells(1, 1), lastCell).Address End Sub
I just converted from Excel 2003 to 2007 and print previewed a worksheet and find a tiny image with a small portion of the print area. When I look at the sheet in page break preview mode, I see the 8.5 x 11 sheet broken up into approx 77 smaller sheets. When I try to move the page breaks to include the whole sheet it states the change cannot be made as it will result in an image less than 10%. I have attached two images - the first shows the print preview I get, and the second show the multiple pages when I view in page break.
with creating vb code that will select certain rows in a spreadsheet, set the print area to those rows and print them out, and then reset the print area back to default. The data is all on one sheet, but is split into 5 different areas, each below the next, with the column headers at the top of each. e.g.
and so on. At the press of a button it'll set the print area to the first section and print (the section includes the headers as well as the data). Then at the press of another button it'll set the print area to the next section. There could be any amount of rows of data in each section so it needs to cope with that.
I have a sheet that will be about 5 pages long if printed. To minimize wasted ink and paper, using VB I would like to be able to have it only print the portion uses (data entered) along with a section at the top and bottom. The section at the top would print on the top of the first page and the section at the bottom would print on the last page.
I know I could record a macro to select an area and print that but it would not do what I am trying to accomplish.
I use the code below to print a portion of a sheet. My problem is that the area always changes. The $A$476 should be the first cell in that column that contains "HEA" The "536" in $F$536 is the last row that contains data. There are conditional formats all the way down to row 1,000 but not data
Private Sub CommandButton1_Click() Dim strCurrentPrinter As String, strNetworkPrinter As String ****strNetworkPrinter = GetFullNetworkPrinterName("Adobe PDF") ****If Len(strNetworkPrinter) > 0 Then ' found the network printer ********strCurrentPrinter = Application.ActivePrinter ********' change to the network printer ********Application.ActivePrinter = strNetworkPrinter ********ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$476:$F$536" ********ActiveSheet.PrintOut** 'print something ********' change back to the previously active printer ********Application.ActivePrinter = strCurrentPrinter ********ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "" ****End If End Sub
Obviously there is a function also that finds the full network printer name, I didn't think it was important, because my issue is the print area. Everything else works fine. If you need it let me know and I will post it.
Looking for a macro that will set the print area on an accounts spreadsheet to the last non blank row, bearing in mind that all the rows contain formulas, have tried some macros but they assume the cells with formulas in them are non blank
copying a document that was made in word into Excel. I set the print area and page size but it seems I can keep adding columns. When I check the print preview it still shows the one page but it appears wider.Will it automatically create a new page if the page size limit is reached?
I can define a name to calculate the desired Print Area for a page. For example, print_area_notes: =Notes!$A$1:INDEX(Notes!$A:$Z,final_Note,5). I can then use that name when defining the Print Area via Page Setup.
The problem is it calculates the cell range immediately and substitutes that in the Print Area field. When print_area_notes changes the actual Print Area does not. Is there some formula I can enter in Print Area that will allow this value to be set dynamically? I have tried setting Print Area to =indirect("print_area_notes") but it doesn't like that. I could, but prefer not to, write a VBA function to set the Print Area but even then how do I set it to be called automatically? I'd prefer to be able to enter a formula and do it without VBA code because you then have the security issues every time the spreadsheet is opened.
I have 2 codes that set up different "print areas". Every time i run one of the codes the print area doesn't get set unless i run the same code again. So if i run code A which will set the print area with no issues and then right afterwards i run code B then code B's print area won't get set unless i run code B a 2nd time. And if i now i run code A, the same issue happens and the print area to Code A won't get set properly unless i run the code again.
Here is part of the code that discusses the print area:
