Printing problem from Excel 2007
I am having an issue with printing from Excel 2007. Many users when
printing from Excel with get several pages of non-sensical "junk"
printed out on the pages. If it actually prints what is on the page,
none of the items are in the cells, but look like they are just
randomly thrown about the page. I have found that this most often is
related to the Calibri font somehow, because I instruct them to change
the font to Arial and all prints fine. That being said, if the user
converts the Excel sheet into a PDF and print, it prints perfect. This
is a great workaround, but kind ...Excel Mail Merger Problem

Help or TaskPane.
For Help, you should be able to close it using the "x" and next time open
Excel should not display.
If TaskPane, go to Tools>Options>View and uncheck "Startup Task Pane"

I am using Excel 2007 for the first time and find the gridlines delineating
the cells are so faint as to be nearly indistinguishable. I can go into the
cell formatting and modify the normal style, and it is just the way I want
it. But I can't find a way to make Excel remember this and treat it as the
new definition of the Normal style. I don't want to have to redefine Normal
every time I open a new spreadsheet. Someone please help!
The changes you describe are changing the Border color and NOT gridlines.

This could simply be a version issue if you developed on a later version and
used controls from that versions object libraries. You should always use the

The above is an example, but it aplies to any menu. Before, if I pressed say,
ALT F, the drop down menu would appear and I could press, say, C and get to
the submenu. Now I have to press Enter, before the C, which is a bother.
On my Windows 2000 version 5.00.2195 with Excel '97 and Excel 2003 the
Alt F C still works.
What version software / Excel are you using?

...lost data when opening excel workbooks ; text import wizard popup
When opening many of my excel files ,which all have the same modification
date, I come across the text import wizard which states that my text in these
files is 'delimited'. All of the files ,including a few word doc.s have had
their data changed to show all " y " with two dots above the letter for as
far as the eye can see. No import or export has been done with the files and
no modifications were done on that date, as far as I know.
Is this a corruption problem or is their some 'fix' that I am overlooking.
Thanks for any ideas.

You can't do that in Excel.

(merged cells, colors, borders, and data formatting (99% turns into
