# Excel print range

I have a macro that I use to print a range of cells.  If it does not = 0 then it prints.  It worked until I tried the same macro in the Excel 2010 - it works except that it prints all - even if the sum is zero.

Any help is appreciated.

For x = 6 To 19
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 8).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
Sheets(y).Select
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$B\$2:\$F\$21"
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1
End If
Next x

For x = 6 To 19
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 11).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
Sheets(y).Select
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$I\$2:\$M\$21"
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1
End If
Next x
For x = 6 To 19
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
Sheets(y).Select
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$b\$22:\$f\$41"
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1
End If
Next x
For x = 26 To 39
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 23
Sheets(y).Select
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$I\$22:\$M\$41"
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1
End If
Next x
End Sub

Have you tried inserting a breakpoint at the beginning of your code, then step through the code to check the values line by line?
Author Commented:
No - trying to help someone out - not an excel person :)
Commented:
Maybe the values are not really 0 and need to be rounded:
Example:
``````Round(Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Value, 2)
``````

Adjust ',2' up to the number of digits needed.
Commented:
FYI - you can optimize your code from:

``````
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 8).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
Sheets(y).Select
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$B\$2:\$F\$21"
ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets.PrintOut Copies:=1
End If
``````

To

``````    If Sheet2.Cells(x, 8).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
With Sheets(y)
.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$B\$2:\$F\$21"
.PrintOut copies:=1
End With

End If
``````

There's no need to select sheets or use the ActiveWindow to set print areas or print sheets.

I just tested your code out with dummy data and it worked fine for me.  I put a 1 in H6,  K6, N6, and N26 and it printed 4 times.

The test is for non-zero so rounding should not be an issue.  Just check those ranges and advise if the value is not zero.  If that doesn't work, then try this and see what it tells you:

You can try this amended code below which creates a LogSheet (assuming the workbook is not protected) and logs what is happening.  Check the log and see what values are being displayed for these ranges.  If you are getting nothing, then the ranges being examined don't have data - or at least they don't have non-zero data, and that's what the if statement is looking for.

``````Sub test()
Dim wkb As Workbook
Dim wksNew As Worksheet
Dim outCursor As Range

Set wkb = ThisWorkbook

On Error Resume Next
Set wksNew = wkb.Worksheets("Log Sheet")
If Err.Number <> 0 Then
wksNew.Name = "Log Sheet"
End If
On Error GoTo 0

wksNew.Cells.Clear
Set outCursor = wksNew.Range("A1")

For x = 6 To 19
outCursor.Value = "BLOCK 1 Sheet2.Cells(" & x & ",8).Address is  = " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 8).Address & " having value: " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 8).Value
Set outCursor = outCursor.Offset(1, 0)
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 8).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
With Sheets(y)
.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$B\$2:\$F\$21"
.PrintOut Copies:=1
End With
End If
Next x

For x = 6 To 19
outCursor.Value = "BLOCK 2 Sheet2.Cells(" & x & ",11).Address is  = " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 11).Address & " having value: " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 11).Value
Set outCursor = outCursor.Offset(1, 0)
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 11).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
With Sheets(y)
.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$I\$2:\$M\$21"
.PrintOut Copies:=1
End With
End If
Next x
For x = 6 To 19
outCursor.Value = "BLOCK 3 Sheet2.Cells(" & x & ",14).Address is  = " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Address & " having value: " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Value
Set outCursor = outCursor.Offset(1, 0)
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 3
With Sheets(y)
.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$b\$22:\$f\$41"
.PrintOut Copies:=1
End With
End If
Next x
For x = 26 To 39
outCursor.Value = "BLOCK 4 Sheet2.Cells(" & x & ",14).Address is  = " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Address & " having value: " & Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Value
Set outCursor = outCursor.Offset(1, 0)
If Sheet2.Cells(x, 14).Value <> 0 Then
y = x - 23
With Sheets(y)
.PageSetup.PrintArea = "\$I\$22:\$M\$41"

"The test is for 0 so rounding should not b an issue"
-> I did actually run in this kind of issue in the past where the sum of values looked as if it was zero, but they were not.  In the end these are floating point numbers and rounding will make a near zero a perfect zero.
Commented:
I withdraw my comment, you are absolutely correct. 00000000001 may be zero to excel.

Let's see what the test I submitted provides and hopefully there's some answer there as well.

Cheers,

Dave
