Excel Quick Tip "default margin settings"

The problem? We have more data than will fit within Excel's default margin settings. If you go to File | Print Preview, only five out of the six columns are visible.

To correct this, go to File | Print Preview. If you don't see dotted lines representing margin settings, click the Margins button to display them. Mouse over any of the margin lines. When the cursor changes to a bi-directional arrow, click and drag to change the margins visually. 

In many cases, you can pull that last column back onto the page by shrinking the right and left margins. Save even more paper by shrinking the top and bottom margins, cutting a three-page print range down to two.
