Print related procedures in class Range (Excel VBA)

This page presents procedures from class Range related to the theme Print: PageBreak, PrintOut and PrintPreview


Returns or sets the location of a page break. Can be one of the following XlPageBreak constants: xlPageBreakAutomatic, xlPageBreakManual, or xlPageBreakNone.
