Print Preview

Generally the worksheet will appear on paper as it does on screen. However this is not always the case and worksheets can become very large. There are additional commands to affect the printout of a worksheet and adjust it to your needs.

Print Preview allows you to check the appearance of your printout on screen before actually printing.

To view the Print Preview:

  • Click the Print Preview icon on the Standard toolbar Print Preview button
  • Or click File > Print Preview
