Print headings or titles on every page

If you want to print a sheet that will have many printed pages, you can set options to print the sheet's headings or titles on every page.

Excel automatically provides headings for columns (A, B, C) and rows (1, 2, 3). You type titles in your sheet that describe the content in rows and columns. In the following illustration, for example, Projected is a row title and 2nd QTR is a column title.
