Copy Page Setup Settings to Other Sheets In Your Excel Workbook
Each Excel sheet has its own print setup options (orientation, margins, headers and footers, and so on). These options are specified in the Page Setup dialog box, which you access using the File, Page Setup command.
When you add a new sheet to a workbook, it contains the default page setup setting. Here's an easy way to transfer the settings from one worksheet to additional worksheets:
- Activate the sheet that contains the desired setup info. This is the "source" sheet.
- Select the "target" sheets. Press Ctrl and click the sheet tabs of the sheets you want to update with the settings from the source sheet.
- Select File, Page Setup and click OK.
The Page Setup settings of the source sheet will be transferred to all of the target sheets.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
