Excel 2010: Is there anyway to make a file default print the entire workbook, instead of just the active sheet?

WildSteer asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have an Excel 2010 file that contains two worksheets.  I need to print about 200 of these files. I need both of the worksheets to print though, not just the first active worksheet.  

I know I could manually select print 'entire workbook' in the print settings if I want to print one.  But I don't want to have to go into each file and tell it to print the entire workbook when I print all of these.

Is there a way to set this 'print entire workbook' as a default in the Excel program, itself? Or a registry hack?

Thank you very much!
