Printing Row Numbers in Excel

Printing row numbers in Excel can be a very useful way to keep track of your data. There are a few different ways that you can print row numbers in Excel, so we'll go over a few of the most popular methods.

One way to print row numbers in Excel is to use the ROW function. This function will return the row number of the cell that it is used in. For example, if you use the ROW function in cell A1, it will return 1. You can then use this function to print row numbers by using the following steps:

  1. Select the cells that you want to print row numbers for.
  2. Click on the Insert tab.
  3. Click on the Function button.
  4. Select the ROW function from the list.
  5. Click on OK.

Your selected cells should now contain the row numbers. You can then format these cells as desired (e.g., change the font size, color, etc.).

Another way to print row numbers in Excel is to use a macro. Macros are small programs that you can create to automate tasks in Excel. To create a macro that will print row numbers, follow these steps:

  1. Open the Visual Basic Editor (VBE) by pressing Alt+F11 on your keyboard.
  2. Insert a new module by selecting Insert > Module from the menu.
  3. Paste the following code into the module:
Sub PrintRowNumbers()

  Dim r As Long

  For r = 1 To ActiveSheet.UsedRange.Rows.Count

    Cells(r, 1).Value = r

  Next r

 End Sub
  1. Press F5 to run the macro or select Run > Run Sub/UserForm from the menu.

The macro will loop through all of the rows in your active sheet and print the row number in column A. You can then format these cells as desired.

You can also find many macros online that will print row numbers in Excel. A quick search should find several options for you to choose from.
