    Print three columns on paper from one column of data

    Hi everyone, I am thinking this is one of those puzzles that will be obvious to everyone ... except me.

    I download a flat file to excel and all the data is in Column A. One looooooooong column. The data is usually 15 or less characters. I convert the data into a barcode. But I donít want to print 35 pages that only has one small column on the left side of the page. Iíd like to make 3 to 5 columns on each printed page. I can do it in Word, but for some reason the barcodes donít always scan like they do when printed in excel.

    Using Excel 2013 on a Win 7 Pro laptop. Old reliable I call it.

    Any ideas appreciated.

    The easy way would be to use 3 columns with such formulas

    Play with deducted values if your data starts from from different row. or if you use more columns (of course if you plan 5 columns change multiplication *3 to *5 etc.)

    Then select area with barcodes and during printing use "Print selected area only" option

    Heh. I knew it. Easy fix and I never thought of it.
    When I looked at your sample (thanks) I was like, "Why is he skipping rows?" then realized yours went L-R and my brain focused up and down.
    This'll work. \
    Many thanks.
