Print Previewed A Worksheet And Find A Tiny Image With A Small Portion Of The Print Area
Mar 27, 2009
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.
I have used Option Buttons and Combo Boxes on my worksheet. When I print my worksheet, the controls which contain values do not print properly. They only print a fraction of their actual size relative to the rest of the worksheet. The properties are set so that they are printable. What setting do I need to change for them to print properly.
I need to use macro to find the last column index number within the print area. My cell sizes change depending on the data entered so the last column in the print area changes. The code I want to implement involves putting a title at the top of the page and creating a border that spans the width of the page. This is what I have so far:
LastColumn = Cells.SpecialCells(xlLastCell).Column ' replace this with last column in print area
Rows("2:2").Select Selection.Insert Shift:=xlDown Range(Cells(1, 1), Cells(2, LastColumn)).Select With Selection .MergeCells = True .HorizontalAlignment = xlCenter .VerticalAlignment = xlCenter End With
With Selection.Borders(xlEdgeLeft) .LineStyle = xlContinuous .Weight = xlMedium .ColorIndex = xlAutomatic End With
I would like to set the printer area of an Excel worksheet. I would like to print one page starting from row A3005-V3220. However, I cannot change the print area. Excel wants each row to be another page. When I drag the blue print area lines, nothing happens. So right now I have 216 pages and only want one!
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.
Since upgrading to Windows 2007 (I was already using Excel 2007) I am having issues with the content in the cells on the worksheet not appearing the same on Print Preview and when I print. On the worksheet the cell show to be at the best fit both horizontally and vertically. When I look at the contents under print preview, the contents are squashed from the top and cut off from the left. This happens whether I have the format in Top or Central align and is even worse if I use Bottom align. It is also somewhat worse if I have thickened boarders.
I have a pretty large spreadsheet set up that invoices our clients. A few tabs in the front allow us to globally invoice if we did certain services for all clients and then we can also go into each tab and invoice each client for specific services performed on their property. Some invoices are two pages long and other may be up to seven pages long and anywhere in between... So that's the first issue, how do you find how many pages to print and then set the print range for each invoice.
The second issue centers around being able to print all the invoices at one time.
The spreadsheet is set up in this manner: A recap sheet we print to check off that each invoice was printed; an IIF statement to get the Excel info into QuickBooks; a template to set up each invoice's information with dates, dates services were performed,etc.; then there are five Global billing tabs where I can invoice all accounts globally or by their type of account (Saturday or Sunday open, 24/7 etc.); then we get into the tabs for each account. Each account has its own tab with an invoice loaded inside where we can itemize the services they received. Inside all these individual account tabs we have set up 'Zone' tabs where we can invoice all the clients we set up within a zone. There are about twenty of these tabs. Then at the end I have a few more tabs that aren't used any longer, there are about ten tabs there...
Is there a way I can hit Print and get all of my invoices to print out at one time versus having to go into each and every tab, set the print range, and then hit Print for all 250ish invoices?
This is the biggest complaint I have right now about the invoicing program I have set up...
I created an Excel timesheet, no VBA, which 65 people are using. 64 without a problem but the 65th cannot print the sheet as others can. The last cell on the single sheet is AB61. For the 64 who can print it by selecting the fit to print on one page the percent is 71. For the one person with problems the percent goes down to 10. Even when she opens the read only version on the network it becomes 10%. I checked the magins and everything else I can think of. Short of reinstalling Excel (2000 with Windows 2000)
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
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:
I'm trying to dynamically set the print area for a given worksheet. I use the code below and it works perfectly when it's executed upon opening the tab; however, the worksheet has filters which may lengthen/shorten the required print area.
Is it possible to execute the code below when the user selects print rather than when opening the tab?
I have a spreadsheet used for costing jobs giving a detailed breakdown of parts and time. Sometimes the customer requests a copy so I'm creating a macro for my boss that prints the spreadsheet, less the hidden columns that I don't want the customer to see. This I can manage.
My question is this: Is there a way within the macro to set the print area to change to where the last cell is automatically?
Each spreadsheet is a different length dependent upon the work required and setting a larger print area to compensate would use excess paper and ink.
I'm looking for code that would set print area when printing the output of my Macro. Print area will always be the same for all two pages. I need to display first two tables on page one, and the next two on page two. All four tables will always contain the same number of columns and rows. I'm trying to automate this process as much as possible.
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 some code to select a print area depending on wether or not there is data in a cell. The code I have so far partially works but not quite like I need it to. Here's what I have,
Sub selectprintarea() Select Case True
Case Range("C5").Value > 0 Range("A1:M47").Select ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$M$47"
Case Range("Q5").Value > 0 Range("A1:AA47").Select ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$AA$47"
End Select End Sub
It will select the print range if there is data in C5 but if there is data in C5 and Q5 it only selects the first print area. I know I need an "If - Else" or something of that nature but I cant figure that out. Also I need it to look at other worksheets not just the active one. I've tried a replacing the ActiveSheet with Worksheets (Sheet1). but that gives me an error.
I am having trouble setting print area on rows that can vary from 100 to 6000 rows. This code works good except that the print area cuts off the last row of data every time. "AreaBegin"=row 6 and "AreaEnd" = to last row after a set number of rows have been inserted based on a counter.
Basically how do I get this code to capture the last row for print area?
Sub SetArea() ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = Range("AreaBegin", Range("AreaEnd").End(xlUp)).Address
