Print only part of a worksheet

A print area is one or more ranges of cells that you designate to print when you don't want to print the entire worksheet. If you print a specific selection on a worksheet frequently, you can define a print area that includes just that selection. See Change or clear a print area on a worksheet

Print a worksheet or workbook

You can print entire or partial worksheets and workbooks, one at a time, or several at once. And if the data that you want to print is in a Microsoft Excel table, you can print just the Excel table. You can also print to a file instead to a printer. See Print a worksheet or workbook
