Printing edge to edge and automatically generating a new page query


L

Can anyone possibly help with the following?

I have set up a dynamic form within a print area in excel. The print
area includes cells which act as a border around the form and
therefore I have no requirement for the additional margins within page
set-up. I would like it to print edge to edge but I can’t fathom how
to do it. I have set all margins to zero but I still have some white
edges surrounding my form on print preview. Can anyone shed some light
on how I go about this? Do I need a VBA code or is it hidden somewhere
within the advanced print settings?

Also the form is to be printed on A4 landscape; I have spaces for
about 24 entires but as this is a dynamic form, the entries may
increase and there will not be enough room on the form for all of
them. How do I get excel to automatically generate another form to
include the additional data and can it be numbered 1 of 4, 2 of 4
etc?

I hope someone can assist?

Thanks in advance

Your printer applies default MIN margins. Excel's (or any app's) margin
settings are in addition to your printer's MIN defaults. There's no way
you can get printouts edge-to-edge on the paper unless your printer
accepts tabloid size paper and you 'lie' to it with a custom paper
size.

Hi Garry,

Thank you for your response, apologies for being so slow in replying

and if I have a bit more time to play around with it I'll delve deeper
into printer set-ups!
