How to print duplex on Excel 2010

To print two sided or duplex printing can be done on this steps below.

This will apply only if your printer supports duplex printing.

I tried printing only two worksheets in one A4 size paper.

It requires some few clicks to do duplex printing in Excel 2010.

There might be VBA tricks on how to do this automatically.

Here's what I have done.
  • Click on File select Print
  • Under settings  choose "Print Entire Workbook"
  • Under same settings click on "Print on Both Sides" (Flip Pages on long edge)
  • If at this stage you click on  "Print", printout will be two pages. 
  • So click on the right arrow below the print settings to select the other worksheet.
  • Do same settings click on "Print on Both Sides" (Flip Pages on long edge)
  • Now you can click on "Print" and the printout will be two sided on one paper.
I never tried printing more than two worksheets, but I guess if you want to print multiple worksheets it has to been done manually using the same settings above.
VBA should be able to do the trick to set the settings automatically, on how to do this using VBA code, please check out this link.

Please share if you know some ways on how to do it using VBA.

Here's a screen shot below for the settings above:

For duplex printing settings you will notice that on Print on Both Sides settings, there are two options available "Flip pages on long edge" and "Flip pages on short edge".

Flip pages on long edge - use this if your page layout is "Portrait"
Flip pages on short edge - use this  if your page layout is "Landscape"

Just some quick stuff for excel 2010, duplex printing. :)

Copy a single file using robocopy

Copy a single file using robocopy from a local folder to a shared folder on the network.
A simple rule of thumb before any disaster strike, don't interchange the source and the destination.

If source and destination is mistakenly reverse, files might get overwritten. To avoid any loss of data do a test with a dummy file to ensure things work perfectly.
Robocopy [source][destination]   [file to be copied]
robocopy c:\local_c_folder  \\PC_network\shared_folder   file_to_be_copied_xx.txt
The command will be completed successfully provided the network access right has no issues.

Robocopy works quite good on large files. A simple copy or xcopy command will also work but the speed might vary.

However, if the file (ex. an ISO file) and is more than 4GB and the filesystem  of the thumbdrive or the storage is FAT system, then robocopy or any methods of copying will not work. Since FAT has a file size limitation of less than 3GB.

Robocopy is free it can be accessed from command line. No ne…

WMIC get computer name

WMIC get computer model, manufacturer, computer name and  username.
WMIC is a command-line tool and that can generate information about computer model, its manufacturer, its username and other informations depending on the parameters provided.
Why would you need a command line tool if there’s a GUI to check?
If you have 20 or 100 computers, or even more. It’s quite a big task just checking the GUI to check the computer model and username.
If you have remote computers, you need to delegate someone in the remote office or location to check.
Or you can just write a batch file or script to automate the task.
Here’s the code below on how get computer model, manufacturer and the username.
Open an elevated command prompt and type:
wmic computersystem get "Model","Manufacturer", "Name", "UserName"
Just copy and paste the code above, the word “computersystem” does not need to be change to a computer name.
A sample output below will be generated if the co…
