When you print a Datasheet view with Microsoft Excel, you first export and link the Datasheet view to Excel, and then print the exported data in Excel.

  1. In the Datasheet view toolbar, click Task Pane to display the Task Pane for the Datasheet view.

  2. Click Print with Excel .

Windows SharePoint Services exports the Datasheet view to Excel as a Web query file.

Excel then prompts you to open the Web query file. If Excel is already open, it allows you to choose to import the data in the Web query file into an existing worksheet, a new worksheet or a new workbook. Otherwise, Excel opens and imports the data into a new workbook. Excel displays the imported data as an Excel list in a worksheet, links the worksheet with the Datasheet view, and prompts you to print the Excel list.
