“PAGE MARGIN” is the space between the edge of the page and the content in all the four directions i.e. left, right, top and bottom.
ORIENTATION of the page is the direction in which the page is viewed or printed.
If the BASE is wider and height is lesser, we call it LANDSCAPE whereas if the BASE IS LESS and HEIGHT IS MORE, we call it PORTRAIT. We can set either of the two orientations in EXCEL for the view as well as for the PRINTING.
PAGE SIZE is the size of the page while printing. The length and breadth of the page can be set according to the requirement.
