I did some research on this and found some info that it could only be done using BeforePrint. Can anyone tell me exactly how I go about that? I found the syntax but what I don't know is how it gets activated. I assumed that printing the file would activate the macro and the header would be populated with the value of A1 from the "Not in Dump File" worksheet
This is the code I found online with my worksheet entered in place of Sheet1


Code:
Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)


    With Worksheets("Not in Dump File").PageSetup
        .CenterFooter = Worksheets("Not in Dump File").Range("a1")
    End With
End Sub
I appreciate any guidance,
Bill
 

Excel Facts

Is there a shortcut key for strikethrough?
Ctrl+S is used for Save. Ctrl+5 is used for Strikethrough. Why Ctrl+5? When you use hashmarks to count |||| is 4, strike through to mean 5.
