Printer problem

Can someone tell me how to add a printer. For some reason my printer is installed when I go into Microsoft Excel but when I'm in Word it states there is no printer installed. When I try to install it it won't let me. any ideas? Thanks

It will help others to answer this if you provide your operating system and the make and model of the printer.

oh and which version of Excel and Word.

Windows 7 and Word/Excel 2010 Printer is Canon MP270

Ok I don't have Windows 7 or Office 2010.
But open control panel and under Hardware and Sound and then printers is the Canon MP270 listed and is it set as the default printer?

The printer is ticked under Hardware etc

In which case your printer should have been installed. Does it print ok from Excel and can you print a test page from the control panel interface?

Yes it allows me to print but not in Word. In Word no printer is listed. When I try to add a printer it says Directory Domain not available so won't let me add a printer.

Woodchip - that's the problem 'print' isn't highlighted!

Will try Step 4 - thanks Woolwell
