Printing random page in Excel

Ok, I have a big sheet. When I take the printout it prints some 40 pages. When I go back and print for example, only page number 35, Excel takes time going thru those 34 pages, and then print the 35th page. Its really slow. Is there a way, I can print page number 35 without Excel taking time to count all 34 pages?

Dear Sanja,

Sorry I did forget you..

Here is a macro that should help you..

If you click on the print button, you see a userform that ask the pages that you want to print.
after you click print it prints just this page not others...

Kind regards

1) I presume you mean that a lot of time is spent on pagination - you are not actually printing those 34 pages alright?
2) Are you sure that Excel is actually paginating and not RECALCULATING the cells?
Try to disable automatic calculation and see if this is the case.

Could you upload an example file so I could have a look?

I am sure I can think of a way to just print the page you want..

Kind regards

Let me check and revert. I keep VERY busy. Please give me a day or so to revert.

Works fine, requires some tweaking, and the end user needs to work with the macro. Therefore, direct printing of nth page number will however, take some time.
