    Every cell is printed on a separate page following Margin Size error message

    My first time so please be gentle

    We changed printer servers a while back and all user functioned OK except for one. His PC keeps complaining about "Margins Do Not Fit Page Size" and his Excel printouts result in one cell per page. We can't seem to resolve it. Even worse, he works in Finance.

    He can fwd his spreadsheet to others in Finance and they can print it correctly.

    Have read http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;305713 and http://support.microsoft.com/default...b;en-us;266114 and have tried removing printers and Excel and re-installing both but no joy

    Any help much appreciated

    Howdy, and welcome.

    Occasionally I have experienced that. A couple of things to check: Page setup - is it set to "Fit to one page"?

    The other, believe it or not, was to reboot the computer. Yep, in some cases, this corrected the problem.

    Software: OpenOffice 3.0/NeoOffice 3.0 on Mac OS X 10.5.6

    Old, slow, and confused - but at least I'm inconsistent!

    Hi, and Welcome to OzGrid

    Purely guessing here, but doe sthat user have a Personal.xls file that set margins or printing strangely? Do a Print Preview on the problem machine/user and click margins to see where they are set. Perhaps adjusting the margins (by dragging the dotted lines on Prnt Preview) or using Page Setup could fix the problem.

    We'll be curious to learn what you find to be the actual problem.
    Best Regards,
    Tom

    This problem has been going on for weeks now so the PC has been rebooted, many, many times.

    It's not as simple as just 'fit to one page' etc; in print preview it shows that it will print, say three pages wide, then on a subsequent print preview, it'll show one cell per page.

    I'll try the other suggestions (personal.xls) when he gets in and let you know what happens.

    Thanks for taking the time out.
