Set a print area, then record a macro which does File/Print
then stop the macro recording.
Add a button on sheet 1 that runs that macro.

Hello,

the exact steps differ depending on your Excel version. In Excel 2007 and later:

Click Sheet2
Select the area you want to print
click the Page Layout Ribbon > Print Area > Set Print Area

If you're not familiar with Excel, I don't think using a macro would be suitable.

Without a macro, you can then enter data into Sheet1, click on Sheet2 and open the Print Preview (again, this differs from version to version). In Excel 2007 or later, you can quickly add the Print Preview icon to the Quick Access Toolbar (QAT), so you only need one click to open the Print Preview.

cheers, teylyn
