Print large worksheets

Occasional Visitor

I made a large excel worksheet (160 l x 160 c), that I would like to print at A1 height (24", 60 cm), but that would take over 120", 300 cm length. Is that at all possible?

(e.g.  printer with roll paper feed)

It is possible by installing a printer, even if only virtual, that can do DIN A1 or by creating a user-defined page layout.

In Excel itself, (as far as I know) there are no setting options for this.


If you want to print it as A1, you could print / save it in PDF file and then print it to the plotter as A1 using PDF Creator. This is intended as a detour solution. From this moment on, Excel is logically out ...


Or print out A1-sized posters in 4x A3 formats, if the printer can only print until then. In the printer's own settings; look for any poster option for dismantling, if available. Alternatively, look for freeware software for posters and print from them. Take a Look at the Windows Shop.


I would be happy to know if I could help.
