A printout of data can be more useful if you print gridlines and column and row headings. The gridlines help keep you on track. The headings help you identify and find specific values. You can print both with your spreadsheet data, but neither is automatic. Enable both when printing as follows (versions 2003 and earlier):
- Choose Page Setup from the Print menu or choose Print Preview and click Setup.
- Click the Sheet tab.
- In the Print section, check Gridlines and Row And Column Headings.
- Click OK.
- Click the Page Layout tab.
- Check Print And Headings under Gridlines.
