View Full Version : Print Multiple Sheets as Word Docs

05-15-2009, 08:23 PM
Hi all,

Im looking for code to deal with multiplesheets in the same workbook that I want to print as a single word document.. any thoughts on the VBA code for this?

I have code that handles it one sheet at a time for PDF print, but need these two alterations so it prints all sheets, and in word.

Any thoughts appreciated....Thanks

Here's one to try. Each sheet on a page:
Option Explicit
Sub CopyWorksheetsToWord()
' requires a reference to the Word Object library:
' in the VBE select Tools, References and check the Microsoft Word X.X object library
Dim wdApp As Word.Application, wdDoc As Word.Document, ws As Worksheet
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Application.StatusBar = "Creating new document..."
Set wdApp = New Word.Application
Set wdDoc = wdApp.Documents.Add
For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
Application.StatusBar = "Copying data from " & ws.Name & "..."
ws.UsedRange.Copy ' or edit to the range you want to copy
Application.CutCopyMode = False
' insert page break after all worksheets except the last one
If Not ws.Name = Worksheets(Worksheets.Count).Name Then
With wdDoc.Paragraphs(wdDoc.Paragraphs.Count).Range
.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd
.InsertBreak Type:=wdPageBreak
End With
End If
Next ws
Set ws = Nothing
Application.StatusBar = "Cleaning up..."
' apply normal view
With wdApp.ActiveWindow
If .View.SplitSpecial = wdPaneNone Then
.ActivePane.View.Type = wdNormalView
.View.Type = wdNormalView
End If
End With
Set wdDoc = Nothing
wdApp.Visible = True
Set wdApp = Nothing
Application.StatusBar = False
End Sub

Hi Lucas,
sorry for the slow reply, caught up here in testing yesterday.

This seems to work a treat so far, just putting it within the app Im building and will confirm.

Thanks heaps for this so far...

Hi Lucas,

just catching up - this has worked well; and prints all sheets in the workbook. What is the best way to print just specific sheets in the workbook?

Are you going to select different ones each time and need to choose from a list or will they be the same each time and can be hard coded?

Hi, thanks for following up...

It could be different each time, so a selection option would be great.

One other - I note the pagintion code above, will this need change? I may specify a different range per sheet, not juse UsedRange?

Just as to selection different sheets, maybe?

'For Each ws In ActiveWorkbook.Worksheets
For Each ws In ActiveWindow.SelectedSheets

Hope this helps,
