• Hi,

    I have workbook with many sheets. out of all i choose two sheets to print in a print preview format. for example sheet 1 and sheet 2 are the sheets i want to print preview . when i print my first page is sheet 1 with an footer (something like : page 1 header) and second sheet has data which is printed out as multiple pages. and footer from second page must be like :
    Total Number of Repairs to this point = 7 (count of entries in the page. i have braked the pages so that only seven entries are in each sheet. )
    Page: 2 of 146 ( since this is the second sheet and first page is header.).

    Now i have 2 issues.
    1) with the following code i am only able to print first page footer but not from the second sheet.

    Sub Print_Preview()

    ' Print Preview and automatic page numbers

    Dim xVPC, xHPC, xNumPage As Integer
    Dim xVPB As VPageBreak
    Dim xHPB As HPageBreak
    Dim xLastrow As Long
    Dim xWs As Worksheet
    Dim findRowNumber As Long

    Sheets(Array("TitlePage", "Preview")).Select
    Application.PrintCommunication = False
    With ActiveSheet.PageSetup
    .LeftMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.25)
    .RightMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.25)
    .TopMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.25)
    .BottomMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.25)
    .HeaderMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.3)
    .FooterMargin = Application.InchesToPoints(0.5)
    .PrintHeadings = False
    .PrintGridlines = False
    .PrintComments = xlPrintNoComments
    .PrintQuality = 600
    .CenterHorizontally = False
    .CenterVertically = False
    .Orientation = xlLandscape
    .Draft = False
    .PaperSize = xlPaperLetter
    .FirstPageNumber = xlAutomatic
    .Order = xlDownThenOver
    .BlackAndWhite = False
    .Zoom = True
    .FitToPagesWide = 1
    .FitToPagesTall = False
    .PrintErrors = xlPrintErrorsDisplayed
    .OddAndEvenPagesHeaderFooter = False
    .ScaleWithDocHeaderFooter = True
    .AlignMarginsHeaderFooter = True
    .CenterFooter = "&""Arial,Bold""&12Total Number of Repairs to this point= " & Chr(10) & " Page: &P of &N"
    .FirstPage.CenterFooter.Text = "&""Arial,Bold""&14Report Header- Page: &P"
    .DifferentFirstPageHeaderFooter = True
    End With



    ' Application.Goto Reference:="Print_Area" Used_Range
    ' Selection.Rows.AutoFit

    With ActiveSheet.PageSetup
    .PrintTitleRows = "$1:$14"
    End With

    'inserting page breaks at regular intervels

    Set xWs = Sheets("Preview")
    Set findRow = Sheets("Preview").Range("A:A").Find(What:="VIN", LookIn:=xlValues)

    findRowNumber = findRow.Row + 2
    xRow = 35
    xLastrow = xWs.Range("A1").SpecialCells(xlCellTypeLastCell).Row

    For i = xRow + findRowNumber To xLastrow Step xRow
    xWs.HPageBreaks.Add Before:=xWs.Cells(i, 1)


    Application.PrintCommunication = True

    End Sub
    2) also i want my footer to be like

    Total Number of Repairs to this point = 7 (7*1 .here 1 is page number -1 .)
    Total Number of Repairs to this point = 14 (7*2 here 2 i page number -1)

    i am new to vba and from my knowledge it is not possible to have formulas in footer. how can i do this.

    thanks in advance.
