How to repeat first column on each page when printing in Excel?

When you print a huge sheet with hundreds of columns, except the first page, other pages you print may lose the row headers (first column) as below screenshot shown. Here in this article, I am talking about how to repeat the first column on each page while printing in Excel.

To repeat the first column on each page, the Print Titles feature can help you.

1. Enable the sheet you want to print the first column on each page, and click Page Layout > Print Titles. See screenshot:
doc repeat column 2

2. In the popping dialog, under Sheet tab, click doc select icon 1 next to the Column to repeat at left to select the first column into the text box. See screenshot:
doc repeat column 3

3. Click OK. Now the first column has been added on each page while printing.

Note: If you want to repeat the first row on each page, just select the row in the textbox of Rows to repeat at top in the Page Setup dialog.
