    Excel Printing Question

    I downloaded a Excel chart to keep track of my blood pressure and it is only 1 page. Is there a way to get the same page to print on both sides of the paper in Excel or a way to save it as 2 pages.

    Depends in part on your Printer. Some are auto-duplex and others you have to manually turn over the pages (manual-duplex) to print on the other side.
    Also it depends on how you have selected the Print Areas in Excel, Chart properties, and the Excel Print options.

    If your printer offers duplex, when you click File, Print look at the printer name, on the right usually is Properties or something similar, that's where I change to "both sides" printing.

    Set Excel to fit the chart to the page, select to print 2 copies and set the duplex mode which may need you to manually turn over the paper

    Thanks for al the suggestions. When I select print both sides the second page is blank. I'll try the suggestion from Steve C and see what happens. I made a 2 page copy by manually making a copy with the scanner on my Epson printer so I'm good for now.

    After trial and error I came to the easiest method for me. The good old sneakernet and manual make a 2 page copy with my scanner. Thanks for the suggestions. I do appreciate the help.

    Regardless of what you do, realize double sided printing is a printer function not an Office one. Meaning you can layout how you want but if the printer isn't set or capable the layout means nothing.

    Generally speaking, automatic duplex printing and copying does rely a lot on the printer having the ADF/Automatic Document Feeder feature.
