Hi fellow Excel Addict,
On a cold (5°C/41°F) and wet November day, here is one bright spot in my garden — a lonely red strawberry. Usually strawberries ripen in mid to late summer but this one has managed to stick around until November and somehow coax enough energy out of the limited sunshine we get at this time of year to turn a nice shade of red.
Looking a little greedy to me by the looks of those smaller strawberries. Maybe those white strawberries are giving a hint of the weather to come.
In today's 'Excel in Seconds' tip, I show you 'Printing Without Color'.
If you missed last Thursday's 'Excel in Minutes' tip, 'How to Monitor Changes in Key Cells Throughout a Workbook', you can read it here now.
Please feel free to share my newsletter with your friends — they will thank you for it.
Hope you have a great week and keep on Excelling,
Francis Hayes (The Excel Addict)

Printing Without Color
Do you have worksheets that are formatted using various colors, such as with Conditionally Formatted cells, that serve to highlight specific information for the user of the workbook?
But when it comes to printing the workbook, these colors may not be necessary.
If you want to be able to print worksheets without these colors (and also save on ink/toner), there is a setting that allows you to do this.
1) From the Page Layout tab, click that tiny arrow in the bottom right corner of the Sheet Options group.
2) On the Sheet tab of the Page Setup dialog, selecting the Black & white option in the Print section allows you to print a worksheet only in black and white. Colors (and patterns) will not print.
