Hello I hope this helps, go to the code in ThisWorkBook.

You can do this by pushing ALT+F11 then right clicking on "ThisWorkBook" on
the left, and left clicking on view code.

Then paste in the following

Private Sub Workbook_Open()
Sheets("NameOfSheet").Cells(1, 1).Value = Worksheets.Count
End Sub

When the worksheet opens it'll count the number of worksheets and put this
value in a specified cell. So in this case if you had a sheet named
NameOfSheet it would put a number in Row 1, Column A.

Hope this helped.

I am reading your question differently than Nate did... it looks to me like
you want to know how many pages it will take to print out the worksheet
itself (not how many worksheets are in the workbook). If I am right,
copy/paste the following code into the code window for the worksheet you
want this functionality on (right click the worksheet's tab and select View
Code from the popup menu that appears)....

Private Sub Worksheet_Change(ByVal Target As Range)
On Error GoTo Whoops
Application.EnableEvents = False
Range("A1").Value = ExecuteExcel4Macro("GET.DOCUMENT(50)")
Whoops:
Application.EnableEvents = True
End Sub

you have guessed it correctly.
i want to know how many pages will print when i give print command on a particular worksheet
(and not how many worksheets are there in a particular workbook)

actually i want to display the following text on a particular column cells

page x of y (where x is the particular page on which the cell lies and y is the total number of pages that would print)

please help

Hi,


Cant you just use the Header or the Footer section where excel can give you
that automatically ?

In order for you to be able to put the page number on each page, I guessing
that would mean there are set cells reserved for the page number... what are
those cell addresses?
