Defining Page Setup Options
The Page tab of the Page Setup dialog box lets you change page orientation (portrait or landscape) and paper size (e.g., letter size or legal size). The default paper size in Excel XP is 8.5 x 11 inches with a portrait orientation, which prints up and down on the long side of the page. A landscape orientation, on the other hand, prints up and down on the short side of the page.
The Page tab of the Page Setup dialog box lets you shrink the spreadsheet data so it fits on a specified number of pages when you print. Click the Fit to: option button, then enter the desired number of pages wide and pages tall.
The Page tab of the Page Setup dialog box lets you define the resolution of the print job. Print quality is measured in dpi, or dots per inch. A higher dpi provides a better print quality.
