Display the Print Window in Excel

Add to Favorites
This free Excel macro displays the print window or dialog box in Excel. This is the same window that would appear when you hit Ctrl+P on your keyboard or when you select Print from the file or Office Button menu.

This is a great macro to use when you don't want to give users access to keyboard shortcuts or Excel menus because you can set this macro to a button within the spreadsheet in order to retain print functionality.

Where to install the macro:  Module
