How to Add Page Numbers in Google Sheets (2024 Update)

Google Sheets Page Numbers

Google Sheets does not inherently support page numbers within the spreadsheet while you're working in the online interface. However, when you prepare to print a Google Sheets document or save it to PDF, you can access print settings that allow you to include page numbers.

How to Add Page Numbers in Google Sheets

Follow the process below to insert page numbers in Google Sheets. 

1. Go to File Menu and Select 'Print' to Access Print Settings

In your spreadsheet, click on "File" in the menu bar, then select "Print" from the dropdown menu. This will open the Print settings in a new window or tab.

2. Scroll to 'Headers & Footers' in Print Settings

In the Print settings, find the "Headers & footers" section. You might need to scroll down or search under a different tab. Check the box next to "Page numbers" to add them to your document.
