The printer is connected by cable

The printer works ok from the desk top with everything but MS Works Spread sheet

I have not got Works Spreadsheet, (I have MS Office Excel) but think it will be similar.

What version MS Works?

Having googled it there does seem to be a few others with same problem and various 'fixes' they have tried, but nothing for definite.

I asume you have a excel type program on your computer, if so try this advice from microsoft.
