Tame your computer – nifty numbering

22 Jun

Do you use page numbers in Excel and if so, have you ever had the need to change the page numbers in your header or footer so that they are not the same as the actual page numbers?

You might do this in Word, but did you know you can do it in Excel as well?

Here’s how:

  1. Click the Page Setup Dialogue Box Launcher (the tiny arrow in the bottom right hand corner) in the Page Setup group on the Page Layout tab.
  2. In the First page number box, double-click on Auto and type the starting page.number.
  3. Click OK.

Headers and footers are not displayed in Normal view. So perhaps you spot that you want to change your settings when you preview and print your workbook from the File tab. If so, simply click on the Page Setup link at the bottom of the page and complete steps 2 and 3.
* Unless stated otherwise, these tips were written for Microsoft Office 2010.
