Them’s the Breaks

Them’s the Breaks

When working with MS Excel worksheets, do you find yourself constantly flipping into Print Preview to see exactly where Excel will put the page breaks?

Or maybe you don’t wait for Excel to place them and you insert the breaks manually.

I don’t know about you, but I usually wait to see where Excel wants to put them and then make adjustments only when necessary.

But, there are times when I’d like to see what Excel’s plans are pertaining to page breaks. So, is there a way to have Excel display the page breaks right in the worksheet?

Of course, the answer is yes and that’s what we’re here to look at today.

The setting for page breaks is in the Tools menu, Options choice.

In the Options window, you need the View tab.

In the Window options section, select the Page breaks checkbox and click OK.

That’s it. When you return to the worksheet, you’ll see page breaks represented by dotted lines in the workbook, which will remove the “where will they be” mystery of Excel’s page breaks!
