Hi,

pls try


Sub Macro()
Set sh = ActiveSheet

sh.PageSetup.Zoom = False
sh.ResetAllPageBreaks
sh.PageSetup.Orientation = xlLandscape
Rounding = 40
LastRowRounded = WorksheetFunction.MRound(Range("A" & Cells.Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row, Rounding)
sh.PageSetup.PrintArea = "A1:H" & LastRowRounded
sh.PageSetup.FitToPagesWide = 1
sh.PageSetup.FitToPagesTall = LastRowRounded / Rounding
 
sh.PrintPreview
Set sh = Nothing
End Sub

Open in new window

Tks. It can't really fit into the row that I need, say every 1-80, 81-160,161- 240 and 241-320 into separate page. Any idea ?

I have extracted a coding from my marco. Base on the calculation, page break should occur every 80 rows but it doesn't. Any idea ?

Tks



Rounding = iNumberOfRow * lblHeight
   80 =    4   x 20


LastRowRounded = iTotalRecord / iNumberOfCol * lblHeight
      300 =     60 / 4 *20

stPrintArea = Cells(1, 1).Address(RowAbsolute:=False, ColumnAbsolute:=False) & ":" & Cells(LastRowRounded, iNumberOfCol * lblWidth).Address(RowAbsolute:=False, ColumnAbsolute:=False)
                                                                                                               (4 * 3)
wksheet.PageSetup.FitToPagesWide = 1
wksheet.PageSetup.FitToPagesTall = LastRowRounded / Rounding
                                       300 / 80
'wksheet.PrintPreview
Set wksheet = Nothing
