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.

    Removing the cells that I added as white "color theme" to cover up the text I didn't want displayed and switching it to "No Fill" work for me and printed only the one page that I was trying to print! Thanks for the help, T!

    Do you have any cells filled or formatted that are outside of the pages you want? Even filling cells with white colour will make excel print additional pages. Try clearing any fills/formatting for cells outside the range you want printed.

    I am very frustrated with excel. I can't get any of these solutions to work. Why can't the damn program just print what I wrote and not an additional 30,000 pages?! This bug ought to be an elementary fix.Ugh!!!!
