Can't print Excel sheets correct size

  The Belarussian Mafia 15:01 28 May 2005

I'm using Excel for the first time, so forgive me if this is a basic mistake.

I'm trying to print a file created by someone else (-actually a lecturer, so it is a bit complex - which may or may not be relevent). The print preview is fine: two sheets, each one filling a separate page. Unfortunately, when I actually print, I get two tiny versions of the two spreadsheets on one page, not two, and to make matters worse, the orientation is wrong (landscape even though the preview shows portrait). I've checked the printer preferences, and that is set to portrait.

I've tried the online help, which mentions a couple of features in the print setup ('adjust to' and 'fit to'), but this just messes things up entirely.

Any help will be very much appreciated, although I'm just leaving the house and will be out until late this evening, so won't be able to answer any questions until about 10:30 pm. Thanks.

If you go into File/Page setup, Page tab and tick Portrait and Fit to 1 page wide by 2 tall it may print as you want bit to.

VoG™ - Thanks The orientation is now correct for some reason, but the two sheets now print in one sheet, and they are still the same size. It appears as if the printer is unaware that there is more than the top quarter of the page, as the bottom of the sheet is transposed to a second column to the right. What a wierd programme this is for someone who has never used a spreadsheet!...

This sort of thing is difficult to diagnose via the forum. I can take a look at the file and try to see what's going on if you like.

I'll send you a message.
