Default Re: printer problem

bump...additional info.....i was trying to help my father-in-law print out this document, and couldn't get it to work right. it is an 18 page excel spreadsheet document, and we were just trying to print page 1 of it in the portrait format on one end of a 11x17 paper. i think i may need to adjust where the page break is or something, but can't figure it out. anyone have any ideas what setting i need to adjust?

hmm not sure about the top post but maybe for the different paper you need to go into "page setup" and set it up to print on the new size paper.

i always get problems like that in word especially. i apply a background and it doesnt print out or show in print preview. my work also sometimes looks fine in print preview but parts of the border and other things are missing. i just try and make sure it all fits comfortably on one page and change the page setup if i have to.
