Faxing multiple worksheets from the same Excel
You can select which sheets from an Excel workbook
you want to fax. E-mail to Fax will fax the sheets you have selected
as of the time the document was last saved, or as of the time you
emailed it directly from within Excel using File ---- Send To===
from the MS Excel menu.
To select more than one sheet for faxing, click
on the sheet's tab at the boffom of your screen with your mouse.
Then, hold in SHIFT and click on another tab to select all the sheets
between the first and the last. Or, hold in CTRL and click on individual
tabs: That will select each sheet individually as you click on it.
Sheets will be faxed in the order they appear in the Excel file.
"Hidden" sheets will not be faxed.
Note: Every Excel workbook always has at least
one selected sheet, which is usually the "active" sheet.
Microsoft Excel formatting tips
If you do not specify a specific format for dates,
E-mail to Fax will use the US default format when converting your
document to a fax (for example, Miaosoft Excel under US date seffings
displays dates in MM(DDIYY format, not DDIMM(YY as is common in
some countries). E-mail to Fax will also use English month and day-of-week
names. If you wish to ensure that dates appear in a specific format
or with specific local-language day and month names, it is suggested
that you enter dates as text values, by prefacing your date value
strings with a single-quote
Sometimes, the width of a column on the screen is
suffident to display all the numbers in a cell, but when printing
to your printer, the numbers come out as something like 'w#m-r'.
This is because the printer driver on your PC is not able to fit
all the digits into the cell's available space on the printed page
- but the screen driver is. When E-mail to Fax converts your spreadsheet
to a fax, the same things can be occur if you're not careful. You
should do two things to avoid the Wmmmr effect:
1. Make sure you Eew your document in Print Preview
mode before faxing and all the values appear correctly
2. Allow for a little extra space in your numeric
columns, since fax machines are, by defination, a liffle less precise
than laser printers, particularly wth small type sizes.
Dates and times in Microsoft Excel, Microsoft
Gifice macros and calculations
If you use a formula referring to the current date
and time, such as the Microsoft Excel formula "NOW()", the value
used for the purpose of converting your document to a fax is based
on United States Eastern Time, which is GMT -5 hours. If you wish
to eliminate any dependencies in your document on current US Eastern
Time, please convert calculated dates and times to actual date and
Note: The date and time which appear on your fax's
cover page addressing banner and in delivery confirmation messages
sent to you by the SwissFax Network are all in GMT (Greenwch Mean
Time), a global timekeeping standard.
