Portrait only printing in Excel

I have an interesting problem. I have a workstation (Dell 
Pentium IV  XP PRO) that has Office 2k on it. When I/we 
try to print to a networked printer, the document will 
only print in portrait no matter what changes I make to 
page settings or printer settings. We are on Active 
Directory, so as long as the documents are submitted from 
a different computer, it will print fine. Any suggestions?

This could be a complete waste of your time, but the first thing I'd try is to
reinstall the printer driver.

(maybe even get a fresh driver from the printer manufacturer's web site???)

How much computer power needed for large Excel files?
I have been handling spreadsheets with 30,000 to 40,000 data points that I need to work with (manipulate and graph). I am routinely crashing my computer (a 2 year old Dell). As I contemplate a new computer, I am wondering if there are any thoughts if a new Pentium 4 with 512 m of RAM could handle this size of spreadsheet, or do I need one of the more expensive dual processor Precision systems (cost twice as much). And how much RAM?? Is there an idea of required computer power to handle Excel files of this size?? thanks, Roger Excel isn't multithreaded, so I don't believe it will b...

Opening multiple excel sessions
Ho w do I configure my excel so that when double click a .xls file from explorer it starts a brand new Excel session rather than adding it to an existing session? Reason I want to do this is that if I have multiple sheets open and some are set to manual calc and others are set to auto calc the calculation setting defaults to what ever it was on the first file opened. This is creating a problem when I open an auto calc file first then open a manual calc after as the manual one starts calcing upon opening it. Can anyone help me with this? -- sgreen ---------------------------------------...

CHR() function not working in Excel 2003
I've written a VBA application in Excel 2002, which works correctly. This should work on all recent versions of Excel, so I've been testing it on Excel 2003. This includes the lines: Dim a as String a = "text" + Chr(34) On Excel 2003, I'm getting the error "Compile error: Can't find project or library", and the Chr function is highlighted. If it's helpful, I've tried commenting this line out and I also get the same error elsewhere when I use the Space() function. The rest of the code runs successfully. I've seen elsewhere that I should look ...

I have Excel 2003 and every time you open a file, it asks you if you want to save it when you exit. Prior Excel versions only gave a dialogue box to save, when changes were made to the file. Is there a way to set it so that it only pops up a dialogue box to save, if there were actually any changes? Atlas, it likely has nothing to do with prior versions. You probably have a workbook that has a formula in it like =NOW() or =TODAY(), both of which "automatically update" and, in essence, change your file, which makes it ask about saving. ******************* ~Anne Troy www.Office...

Outlook 2000 prevents Word and Excel from opening
I must close Outlook 2000 to open either Word or Excel. Once Word or Excel is open I can re-open Outlook without any other conflicts. Also, on a frequent basis, when I close Outlook, although the program disappears, when I do a Control-Alt-Delete I find that Outlook is still listed as Not Responding. I have several times attempted to repair and I have even done complete re-installationS of MS-Office, but the problem has not been resolved. I assume a corrupted file has remaind on the computer and not been replaced with either the repair or re-install. Any suggestions? ...

Excel 2k3: Workbook on network drive, when save creates new file

This new file is the same size as the original document. It didn't start doing this until it was moved from our old 2000 Server to our new 2k3 server. Can anyone help? Does that newly created workbook have a name of 8 characters (with no extension)? If yes... When excel saves the file, it saves it as a temporary file with a funny name (8 characte...
