I can do it using Excel 2003 but I can't define a print area using .PageSetup.PrintArea (it doesn't even show up under ActiveSheet.  Any thoughts?

I recorded a macro in Excel 2007.

Range("A1:J12").Select
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$J$12"

Let's say you have oSheet as the object reference to the sheet.
oSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$J$12"

When I program automation, I try not to use ActiveWorkbook or ActiveSheet since they might lose reference.

It's funny.  I tried what I thought was every permutation but somehow missed.  Regardless, I have it working so thanks!
