Printing a Portion of a Worksheet

It is a safe bet that you already know how to print a worksheet. What you may not know is how you can quickly print just a portion of a worksheet. You can accomplish this by following these steps:

  1. Select the cell range you want to print.
  2. Display the Print options in Excel. (You can display the File tab of the ribbon and click Print, but the easiest way is to just press Ctrl+P.)
  3. Click the rectangular button immediately under the Settings heading. (This button is initially set to Print Active Sheets.) Excel displays some printing options.
  4. Choose the Print Selection option.
  5. Click the Print button.

If you are using Excel 2007, then the steps are a bit different:

  1. Select the cell range you want to print.
  2. Display the Print dialog box. (The easiest way to do this is to just press Ctrl+P.) (See Figure 1.)
  3. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  4. In the Print What box, choose the Selection option.
  5. Click on the OK button.
