I have MS Office 2007. Why can't I start an Excel A3 page instead of an A4. I seem to be able to do this at work, but can't initiate A3 pages at home. Any ideas, or is it just my MSO version?

Does your printer support A3?

No, it doesn't, but why would that affect the initial page set-up? Or is that a dumb question? I wanted to do the work on A3 sheet at home, as opposed to A4, then use at work & print.

Excel will only list the paper sizes that your printer(s) is/are capable of printing. This has been the case in all versions that I have worked with.

The only way around this would be to add a 'dummy' printer that supports A3 printing. I don't know how to do this, sorry.

Thnx for the input, appreciated.

Install PrimoPDF click here (well worth having anyway).

Go into Control Panel > Printers and Faxes, right click PrimoPDF and make it the default printer.

Now in Excel 2007 on the Page Layout tab A3 should be listed under Size.

VoG: Must apologise, brain not in gear!

Without installing the Primo Pdf:

Went into Excel/Page Layout/Size & it looks like I can initiate whatever size I like including A3. It's the same in Word.

Maybe I had my Office 2003 version head on due to responding to the thread 2003 vs 2007.
