Get started with Sheets
4. Print and download
If you need printouts, other formats, or copies of your spreadsheet, Sheets can do that, too.
In this section, you learn how to:
To print your spreadsheet do one of the following:
- Click FilePrint.
- Click Print .
You can choose which sheets to print, what features to include, and which layout you want.
You can download your spreadsheet and open it in other programs.
Click FileDownload as and choose one of the following formats:
- Microsoft Excel (.xlsx)
- OpenDocument format (.ods)
- Adobe® PDF document (.pdf)
- Comma-separated values (.csv)
- Tab-separated values (.tsv)
- Web page (.zip)
Copying a spreadsheet is useful for creating templates. For example, if you write a lot of project plans, make copies of one plan. Then, update each copy for a new project without having to format it again.
- Click FileMake a copy.
- (Optional) You can rename the copy, change where you save it in Drive, and share it with the same collaborators.
If you need to collaborate with someone on your spreadsheet in your old program or format, such as PDF or Excel, you can email it as an attachment.
- Click FileEmail as attachment.
- Select a format.
- Enter the email addresses or Groups you want to send copies to.
- (Optional) Enter a message.
- Click Send.
Note: This sends a copy of the spreadsheet instead of sharing the original, so you won’t be able to use Sheets’ collaboration tools.
