Format Multiple Excel Worksheets in Multiple Workbooks
Do you spend too much time formatting the same reports in Excel?
You probably find yourself formatting the same spreadsheets in the same way daily, weekly, or monthly. This can be a very time consuming and redundant task. And even if it only takes you five to ten minutes to apply page layouts or format header rows; those minutes add up and you may lose some consistency if you forget something.
The Format Copier is your Solution! (and it’s FREE!)
The Format Copier tool automates the process of applying page layout and formatting options to multiple sheets in multiple workbooks. And you can store your formatted sheets, which we will call templates, to use when you have to format the same unformatted reports in the future.
How it works
The Format Copier is a workbook that contains:
- The formatting tool
- And your formatted worksheets (templates) that you will use to copy formatting to unformatted worksheets in other workbooks.
With the press of a few buttons you will be able to apply your template formatting to multiple worksheets and workbooks.
Formatting Options include:
- Page Layout Options for Printing
- Page Breaks for Printing
- Cell Formatting & Conditional Formatting
- Outlines or Row & Column Groups
- Freeze Panes
- Hidden Rows & Columns
- Column Widths
- Row Heights
The Benefit: It’s Easy to Use and Saves You Time
You’ve probably already figured this out, but the Format Copier will save you lots of time. Especially if you’re formatting the same reports over and over again. The tool is very easy to use and even stores your formatting preferences so you don’t have to remember which formatting options you use for each template.
This tool will help if you spend time doing any of the following in Excel:
- Insert header picture, image, or logo on all or select worksheets
- Apply the same header logo formatting on all worksheets
- Format multiple Excel worksheets
- Apply page setup and print settings to multiple worksheets.
Never screw up your TPS Reports again!
Ok, that’s an Office Space reference… And with this tool you won’t ever have to worry about messing up your reports and angering your boss. You might have a general ledger reporting software that exports reports in an plain looking format, or doesn’t format them at all. The Format Copier will transform these reports to your specification, making them easy to read and print. And you will produce reports that are formatted consistently, without having to dig up reports from previous months to compare.
