Instructions for the Microsoft Excel Templates by Rex A Schildhouse
Extensive detail and information is contained within the help function of Microsoft Excel and in the provided text.
Each template is set to print with File Name, Page # of # Page(s), the print date, and the print time to assist in assembly of multiple pages.
