How to Apply a Header to All Worksheets in Excel 2013

It’s very common to have multiple worksheets in the same Excel workbook. Often you might be working with a larger report, but need to work on individual parts of it separately. However, these individual worksheets might all need to be printed with headers, and the same header can be used for each worksheet.

This can be tedious when you are performing the same action individually on each worksheet. Fortunately there is a way to apply a header to every worksheet in your workbook at the same time by first selecting all of the worksheets, then simply creating the header on one of them. This change will then be applied to each worksheet in your workbook.
