XL98: Page Setup Command Does Not Exist in Modules

ID: Q181726

The information in this article applies to:


In the Visual Basic Editor in Microsoft Excel 98 Macintosh Edition, the Page Setup command (on the File menu) is not available. However, in earlier versions of Microsoft Excel, the Page Setup command is available in a Visual Basic module. You can use this command to modify page settings, such as orientation, scaling, margins, headers, and footers.


Microsoft Excel 98 Macintosh Edition ignores Page Setup settings in a module that you created in an earlier version of Microsoft Excel. These settings are not retained if you save the workbook in the "Microsoft Excel Workbook" format. However, if you save the workbook in the "Microsoft Excel 5.0/95 Workbook" format, the settings are retained.

In Microsoft Excel 98 Macintosh Edition, the Visual Basic Editor is the environment in which you create and edit Visual Basic code. The Visual Basic Editor uses an interface that is similar to Microsoft Visual Basic 4.0 for Windows. This interface does not allow you to use Page Setup options.

Note that if you click Print on the File menu, and then click Setup, you can change the paper size, orientation, and scaling. These changes are used when you print a module.
