Changing the page printing order for worksheets
In the Page Order area of the dialog box, you can select the Over, Then Down option to
change the order in which the worksheets will be printed from the default Down, Then
Over. You might want to change the printing order to keep certain information together on
consecutive printed pages. For example, suppose you have a worksheet that is designed to
hold hourly package pickup information; the columns represent hours of the day, and the
rows represent days of the month. If you want to print out consecutive days for each hour,
you use Down, Then Over. In a typical configuration, pages 1 and 2 display the 5:00 A.M. to
11:00 A.M. pickups for the months of January and February, pages 3 and 4 display the 12:00
P.M. to 5:00 P.M. pickups for those months, and so on.
Changing the print order to Over, Then Down for the previous example would print
consecutive hours for each day. Pages 1 and 2 would display the 5:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M. pickups
for January, and pages 3 and 4 would display the same pickups for February.
