in excel; page size is adjusing, not print size on page.

I apparently have done something that when I go to print, the area which is 
printed on a page does not change, only the size of the page.  ie;  in the 
print command, I scale the size to 75%, but it reduces the actual page, does 
not reduce the printed text to print more on a page.  So if I put in 10%, the 
worksheet displayed on the screen is 10% of the actual size vs. putting more 
data on a printed page.  Help.
What did I change accidentally to cause this?

Excel Regional Date Format Options
A client of ours in NZ is complaining that date format options for English (New Zealand) have changed from older versions of excel (they are using 2003) Some of their spreadsheets have dates formatted as dd-mmm-yy, mmm-yy and dddd,dd,mmm but these options do not exist anymore. Is there anyway to add options to this list without using the custom format option? Thanks, Jesse I just compared the Excel 97 and Excel 2003 built-in date formats and they are mostly unchanged. 2003 has a few more but I don't think there were any subtractions. The formats dd-mmm-yy and mmm-yy are righ...

user created shapes non printing
I started have a problem with vision 2002 that I have not noticed before. When I create a new shape, by default, it assumes the non-printing properly under FORMAT � BEHAVIOR.

How to create a connection point in Excel
When I group autoshapes the group itself does not have connection points. A connector connects to one of the grouped shapes instead.

Alternatively, is it possible to change a group into a single shape with connection points? ...

How to change default printing parameters on Excel & ......
How to change the default printing parameters on Excel & keep them changed for future workbooks. Example: Normally I use Printing margins 0.25 on all directions, but default printing margins are 0.75. I want to change them to set 0.25 as DEFAULT. If you start a new workbook and change the page layout (for all the sheets), you can save it into your XLStart folder as Book.xlt. Excel will use that as the basis for new workbooks. You can change a lot of settings that way--including orientation, headers/footers.... Amjad wrote: > > How to change the default printing parameters ...

Windows XP: Open file in read-only: Word, Excel, Visio
I'm often sharing files on a network drive with someone. Often, one of us knows that we don't need to open a file for modification, and we only need read-access. Is there a way to open a file in read-only mode so that when someone does need to open it for modification, the read-only user is not blocking that? If there is not a way to do this native to Windows XP, is there a way to do it from the three applications that we use most, namely Word, Excel, Visio? All are 2003 versions. Thx.

Excel and NPV
Hi, I have a problem regarding the NPV function on Excel. Does anyone know how to use the function if the interest rate changes over a period of 20 years. Say for example, for the first 8 years the interest rate is 8%, then for the next 5 it's 12%, and for the last 7 it's 14%. It would be great if any one can me with this! thanks! As far as I can tell, there is no way you can vary the discount rate in the NPV function in Excel. In fact it is very difficult to model this in any calculation tool. Here is an interesting article which may help you see the difficulty; http://...

Problem with printing listbox bigger than one page
Hi, I created form "Invoice". It contains few list boxes (like: Brand, Product, Price, etc.). Each list box is big enough to display 50 items. It works in this way: user is chosing product from table Products_tbl and clicks on "Add to invoice" button which adds to each list box new item containg apropriate information about chosen product. At the end, user can print the form. Before it was limited, and user could put max. 50 products on one invoice, but I wanted to get rid of this limitation. I did it in this way: after 50th item, with each added product I extend list boxe...
