Sometimes, there may be some texts like “.” in the cell you cannot notice. In this case, you can press Ctrl + End keys on the keyboard to find the last cell you type, and if the cell is not required, delete it. And repeat this operation to delete the cell you do not need. Finally, print the worksheet.
If you print a worksheet with blank pages, maybe there are some formulas which return to blank value you do not notice. You can press Ctrl + ~ keys on the keyboard to show all the formulas in the worksheet, and you can check the blank value formulas and delete them if you do not need them. Then print the worksheet.
Also, you can specify a printing selection to print only.
1. Open the worksheet and select the range you want to print only.
2. Then click File > Print, and in the left pane, select Print Selection from the Setting drop-down list. See screenshot:
If you are using Excel 2007, please click the Office button at the upper-left corner > Print, and then check the Selection in the Print What section of Print dialog.
3. Then after other setting, you can print the selection only.
