Have you ever wondered how to print excel sheets in one page across? so that when you print a large excel spreadsheet the output can be read one page after another, as the normal way (instead of reading the output sideways and down)
Of course, we can use the print settings in Excel to do this very easily.
In Excel 2003:
It is a bit sneaky in Excel 2003 and earlier, but totally worth it.
Go to Print Settings, and from “page” tab, set the Fit to “1” pages wide by and leave the tall field blank (if there is a value, just remove it).
In Excel 2007+:
From the Page Layout ribbon tab, set the width to “1 page” and height to “automatic” to print the worksheet in one page across.
In Excel 2010, it is even more simpler as you can use the backstage view to tell excel how you want your sheets to be printed.

You can use the camera Tool to transfer a section of a worksheet to another location and then that can be part of a printed page
very very special thank you
I am trying to print a spread sheet with Excel 2003. I can't get it to rotate so that the entire text will be left to right not up and down. I tried going to page set up and leaving the "tall" space blank but then it won't let me do anything until a number is entered. There must be a way. Please help me if you can.
