Hi.  I have an attendance form in Excel that I print out every year.  Normally I print out about 300 copies of the form and then stick employee name labels on each hardcopy but I'm thinking there has to be an easier way.  

Cell P2 on my excel form has a space for the name.  All of the employee names are in a separate excel sheet.  Can anyone think of a way to pull the name from my excel table and insert into cell P2 on my form for each print of this form, printing just enough copies of the form as there are records in the employee name spreadsheet?  thanks

Hi

you could it like this

In a sheet calles Names you have the employee first names in ColA LastNames in ColB with a Header

The Sheet called Form will be filled with the Full Name Of Each Employee and printed

Sub Macro()
Sheets("Names").Activate
For Each c In Range(Range("A2"), Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp))
    FullName = c & " " & c.Offset(0, 1)
    Sheets("Form").Range("P2").Formula = FullName
    Sheets("Form").PrintOut
Next
End Sub

Open in new window
