How to Add a Page Break in Excel

If you find yourself working with a sizable Excel spreadsheet, you might consider incorporating page breaks for improved data organization. Page breaks can be introduced either manually or automatically. This guide will demonstrate the process of adding a page break in Excel.

Manually Adding a Page Break

To manually insert a page break, start by choosing the cell where you want the break and navigate to the "Page Layout" tab on the ribbon. Within the "Page Setup" group, click on the "Breaks" drop-down menu and choose "Insert Page Break." The page break will be added at the selected cell.

Automatically Inserting a Page Break

Excel can automatically insert page breaks based on your worksheet's data. To achieve this, go to the "Page Layout" tab and click the "Breaks" button in the "Page Setup" group. In the "Insert Page Break" dialog box, select either "Fit all columns on one page" or "Fit all rows on one page" and click "OK."

Removing a Page Break

When the need arises to delete a page break, select the cell containing the break and click the "Breaks" button in the "Page Setup" group. In the "Delete Page Break" dialog box, opt for either "Page break before selected cell" or "Page break after selected cell" and click "OK."

Adjusting Page Breaks

Page breaks' locations can be adjusted by dragging them to a new position. To do this, access the "Page Layout" tab, click the "Breaks" button in the "Page Setup" group, and choose "Page" in the "Breaks" dialog box. Click "Modify," select the desired cell for the page break, and click "OK."

Previewing Page Breaks for Printing

To preview where page breaks will appear when you print your worksheet, visit the "Page Layout" tab, click the "Breaks" button in the "Page Setup" group, and select "Page" in the "Breaks" dialog box. Click "Insert," choose the cell for the page break, and click "OK."

Clearing All Page Breaks

If you wish to remove all manually added page breaks from your worksheet, head to the "Page Layout" tab, click the "Breaks" button in the "Page Setup" group, select "Page" in the "Breaks" dialog box, and click "Clear All."
