Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

I am using excel 2007. I am trying to print a selection of material from the document. I highlight the selected material push print a check the selection box to print only the selected material. Print preview shows that all of the highlighted material will show up on the page, however when the document comes out, it cuts off the first 2 columns on the LEFT side. I have tried only printing 1 column of material that I know would fit on the page and it still cuts part of that column off. The margins in excel are set to normal and I see no printing preferences set that would make this happen. Also, I am printing in landscape mode. Any ideas would be appreciated!

You need to check your printable area settings "margins".

Print preview makes excel 2007 stop working


The Smart Technologies Notebook Version 11 software certainly seems to be the culprit. Taking the cue from Bob Cochran, this is what is what I did and the problem has stopped. Open Excel and click on the Office button at the top left. Then Click on Excel options. Click on Add-ins. In the "Manage" window, select COM Add-ins and click Go. In the COM Add-ins window uncheck SMARTInk-Excel-All and click OK and "poof" problem gone!!!

How do you print envelopes?


More information is required so I will only assume you are using Excel as a database. Excel is a spread sheet program used by accountants or for mathematical formulas and ledgers. Access is the Database program, however, Excel has functions which is faster to sort and work with address, phone number, zip codes. I will confess, I use Excel as Database because it is quick and easy. I do not know what version of Excel you are using so I will describe it from Office 2007. From Excel make sure you have headers above each column i.e. First Name in Cell A1 Last Name in Cell B1 Address in Cell C1 ect.

Make sure your data is correct and case sensitive as you would like it. If you want zip+4 select the Colum and right click to format the cells using special and select Zip or Zip+4.
It is easiest to use Microsoft Word for the next step rather than format the cells, add page breaks, and customize the print size.
Save your document as an Excel document where you can find it to import it into Word.
Open word and select Mailings then Start Mail Merge and Step by Step Mail Merge.
Select Envelope and next. Select envelope options to change envelope size, font and print options.
Click on Next Select recipients.
Click on browse under select an existing list.
Select the Excel file with your address information.
From the Select Table check the First row of data contains column headers.
Click on the OK buton.
Arrange your envelope then Preview it and your good to go.
If you have an older version of word selects Tools and click on Mail Merge.
Select Get Data.
Pull down Excel for document type.
Select entire Spread Sheet.
Layout your document and complete the merge.
On old versions of word it may not recognize the Excel file. If this happens open the Excel file and save it as a Database File (.dbf) and it should work.
I hope this helps since I did not have enough information from your question.
