excel help

by confuzed / May 12, 2004 12:49 PM PDT

I was wondering if anyone knew how to fit an excel cell to a full sized sheet without going through the hassle of guessing and checking the percent at page set-up. Any help is appreciated.

I read about cells and sheets (worksheets or sheets of paper?) and pages, but I don't see the connection.

Go to File - Page Setup - on the Page tab look about halfway down and you'll see Scaling. Select fit to 1 by 1 page and click OK. That will fit your spreadsheet onto 1 page (or whatever you choose to set in the fields).
