    I've spent the last four hours trying to solve this/use info that's similar to my problem to no avail. I feel I'm so close I can smell the answer is near! :)

    I have a form I use for work that I manually have to fill in 50 times a day with mostly the same information. This is definitely a job for a computer!

    Ideally, I would like to open the spreadsheet and have a button that says 'Print' and it will print what I need - 50 forms with the right information.

    So far I have done the following:

    Created a custom page size (16cm x 14.7cm)
    Scanned an original to use as a background so I can line up the information
    Adjusted the Excel boxes to print the info in the right place.

    Now I need to print the following number ranges as identifiers:

    1 - 22, 29-42 and 51-54

    I feel I'm close with using this macro:

    Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
    [copy] = [copy] + 1
    End Sub

    I use both Excel 2003 and 2007, depending on where I am!

    I have NO experience of macros until today, so any advice is very welcome.
