#### excel grid lines over lapping the text

Closer to the bottom of a printed Excel spread sheet the text is
moving into the lines. I cannot tell if the grid or the text is
moving. I am a printer technician for HP and I have looked at the
printer and it is OK. The driver has been updated also. Can anyone
else?

I won't bore you with the standard 'Update the Printer Driver' answer, because
if anyone's got the latest then you have :-)

I did try a Google on it, and found practically zip on solutions for this, other
than one suggestion from Nick, that you may want to give a go:-

>>I doubt Excel and strange though it seems, I would suspect Video Drivers,
>>(if you have already eliminated printer ones).

>>Try backing a machine off to a standard VGA or SVGA setting and lower the
>>colours to 256.  If this works then you need to update these drivers

Try File, Page setup,  Margins (Tab)

and the Footer at   0.5 inch
and adjust to suit from there.
Check with Print Preview and magnifier.

It is easy to move the Bottom margin
below the Footer.   Common error, at least for me.
Because I try to fill up the sheet.

The header and footer should be closer to the
edge than the  Top and Bottom margins.

Can I embed a clickable link that includes command line arguments?

Plot area of embedded charts unexplainably shrinks in Excel 2003 S
I am working on a large spreadsheet full of numerical data. It contains several dozen bar and line graphs embedded across several worksheets. I have a decent understanding of Excel and Excel graphs but do not use VBA. The problem I have with Excel is that it sometimes – and unpredictably – (vertically) shrinks the plot areas of the embedded graphs. This can happen between opening the document and printing it. Other times, the plot area would shrink if I click on the plot area with my mouse, and then click off on to a cell in the same worksheet. The chart area remains the same siz...
