      Do you have printer that punches hole? I've never seen one :-)

      However, probably all you want is to set the left margin to a

      value that allows punching: File> Page Setup> Margins.

    • That would be covered under your printer interface, not Excel.

    • do you see an option to do that in the properties of the print dialog. It

      would have to be a custom option offered by that printer driver.

    • I think the OP is talking about the gutter position option(s) as found in

      Word. Not sure they're available in Excel

    • I thought gutter position was the separtion between columns in a multicolumn

      page. I am not sure how that relates to 3 hole punch which would put holes

      in the paper. An no, there are no gutter position options in Excel.

    • The way the question was phrased indicated that the OP wanted the holes

      punched. I know that there are printers that will collate and staple, but

      the hole drilling was always done on a separate machine in the arena I worked

      in, which was aerospace. There might be one out there somewhere that can

      drill the holes, but that would be controlled by the printer system, not

      Excel.

    • Be careful - remember what happened to the printer/stapler/puncher? in the

      movie "9 to 5"
