Printing from Excel can be very frustrating, especially if your spreadsheet is too wide or too tall to fit on a single page.
You can use the Scaling option in Page Setup to set limits on how many pages wide and tall your document should be when you print it. The problem with that is that you can find your page fits onto one page, but becomes too small to read. Not only that, but Excel ignores any manual page breaks you've entered. This lesson explains how you can print your spreadsheet so it automatically scales to be one page wide without forcing the rows into a single page.
Excel offers a couple of handy functions that you can use to calculate the smallest and largest values in a range of cells. They are simple functions that go by the names of MIN() and MAX().

Excel offers a number of ways to find rows that contain duplicate values. However, most of them focus on finding rows where the value in just one column is repeated.

We then use the COUNTIFS function in combination with Excel's Conditional Formatting feature to highlight duplicate and even triplicate rows.
