Microsoft Excel 2003 - Printing Spreadsheets - Print a Draft Copy of Your Spreadsheet

Some printers have the option of printing documents in "Draft" mode. Graphics may not look as nice in this mode, yet letters and numbers should be readable but will not appear very sharp. If you have to repeatedly reprint the same Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet for proofing or revisions, however, draft mode lets you do so faster and requiring less printer ink/toner.

If your printer options do not allow you to select a draft mode you can force Microsoft Excel 2003, on a document-by-document basis, to print spreadsheets in draft quality.

1. Click "File" - "Page Setup".

2. When the "Page Setup" multi-tabbed dialog box appears, click the "Sheet" tab.

3. Underneath "Print" check "Draft Quality" as desired.

4. Click "OK" to close the dialog box.
