Property Value

Type Description

An XlPageMargins object that controls the worksheet’s margin settings.


Use the PageMargins property to set page margins, which determine the space between the worksheet content and page edges. The XlPageMargins object contains all margin settings and allows you to specify the top (XlPageMargins.Top), bottom (XlPageMargins.Bottom), left (XlPageMargins.Left), right (XlPageMargins.Right), header (XlPageMargins.Header) and footer (XlPageMargins.Footer) margins. To control the unit of margin measurement, use the XlPageMargins.PageUnits property. By default, inches are utilized to specify the width of page margins. For an example on how to adjust margin settings, refer to the How to: Set Page Margins topic.

sheet.PageMargins = new XlPageMargins();
// Set the unit of margin measurement.
sheet.PageMargins.PageUnits = XlPageUnits.Centimeters;

sheet.PageMargins.Left = 2.0;
sheet.PageMargins.Right = 1.0;
sheet.PageMargins.Top = 1.25;
sheet.PageMargins.Bottom = 1.25;
// Specify header and footer margins.
sheet.PageMargins.Header = 0.7;
sheet.PageMargins.Footer = 0.7;
