How to print multiple copies with sequence page numbers?

Have you ever tried to print multiple copies of one sheet with sequence page numbers? That means to print 10 copies of one sheet, and fill the Cell A1 in the 1st copy with 001, in the 2nd copy with 002…, and in the 10th copy with 010. In Excel, there is no built-in feature can solve this job, but in this article, I introduce a macro code to help you quickly print multiple copies with sequence page number in Excel.

Following below steps to print multiple copies of one sheet with sequence numbers by VBA code

1. Enable the sheet you want to print, and press Alt + F11 keys to open the Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications window.

2. Click Insert > Module, and paste below code to the Module script. See screenshot:

VBA: Print copies with sequence page numbers.

Sub PrintCopiesWithNumbers()
'UpdatebyEntendoffice20161031
    Dim i As Integer
    Application.ScreenUpdating = False
    For i = 1 To 10
        Range("A1").Value = "'00" & i
       ActiveSheet.PrintOut
    Next i
    Application.ScreenUpdating = True
    MsgBox "Totally print" & (i - 1) &"copies", vbInformation, "Kutools for Excel"
End Sub

doc print copy with number 1

Note: in the code, A1 is the cell you want to place the sequence number, 1 To 10 indicates to print 10 copies, and "'00" & I is the sequence format, you can change them as you need.

3. Press F5 key to run the code, and a dialog pops out to remind you that print 10 copies. Click OK to close the dialog, then each printed copy has its own sequence number.

I am working on a checklist. Column C and Column M are my columns with sequence numbers in it. I want them to update everytime I print and continue all the way up to 950. So one sheet contains 1 - 60. I would need to print 16 pages once I figure out how to get those columns C10:C39 and M10:M39 to continue updating with each print. Can you assist?
