What I Print Looks Different From What My Screen Shows

May 6, 2008

I have a WYSIWYG problem: what I see on the screen is NOT what I get out of the print job.

I commonly have the problem when working with Excel objects (any kind of shape, text box, line, graph) in that the layout looks great on the tab that I created, but when I go into PrintPreview or actually print it out, the shapes don't quite align with what I had built in the tab. Where I thought I had lines joining, the print out shows them crossing at other points. If I then go back to the tab and look at the layout on the regular screen, it looks fine.

This problem can be easily understood if you try to create a triangle by drawing three lines (non-overlapping lines that cross only at the vertices). Note that the lines either prematurely cross, or don't intersect at all when you print it out.

THis problem is even magnified when using the camera function to take a "snapshot" of a graph or other objects. In fact, it has the tendency to even "mess up" the graph's formatting, regarding the arrangement of titles and axes (often making them overlap).

Workbook Is Opened Up That Only The Splash Screen Shows

Sep 11, 2009

I have created a splash screen. Is it possible when the excel workbook is opened up that only the splash screen shows? Right now, the workbook opens and there is one sheet that is visible for a certain period of time and then the splash screen comes on. I would like the reverse to happen. First the splash screen and then the one sheet.

Before Print Event That Shows A Userform

Aug 28, 2008

I have a before print event that shows a userform - the user can then select which worksheets they want printed and select a command button. I then have a loop set up that loops through the selected workbooks and prints them. The problem is I am not sure how to tell VBA to print without it going back to the Before Print event userform.

VBA: Using SendKeys To Print The Screen

Mar 13, 2008

I would like to emulate hitting the Alt+Ctrl+"Print Screen" button on the keyboard with the following code. I know there are some restrictions around using the PrintScreen with the SendKeys, but I'm hoping I can still figure out how to make this work.

Following is the first part of a larger macro I've set up. If I can just get this to work, that would be perfect.

Sub PrintTheScreen()

Macro To Print Screen

May 27, 2009

Is there a feature or VB code that will take a screen shot in excel for the sheet that I have active?

What I would like to do is run a macro that does a few things, then takes a screen shot and bundles it up in an email to send (Outlook on Exchange). Since the report is 30 MB it cannot be emailed and taking the time to compose a report w/screen shot takes too much time.

Excel - Add Background Picture To Spreadsheet That Only Shows On Print Area

Aug 29, 2012

I need to add a background picture to a spreadsheet that only shows on the print area.

This spreadsheet is being used as a pro forma invoice that can be emailed to customers for them to view & print as required.

At the moment I can add a background image but this appears throughout the sheet and not in the place I need it to i.e. the print area.

Show Rows On Screen But Not Print Them?

Aug 17, 2006

On a spreadsheet in excel from office xp, is it possible to display a row on the screen, but when you print the sheet it doesn't get printed? How do I do that?

I tried hiding the row, but the admin wants to be able to see it on screen and complained too tedious to unhide it on screen then hide it for printing.

I have never written macros for excel so not sure if there is a solution there, or if it can be done another way.

I also thought we could have the data from the row in another sheet that doesn't get printed, but she (the admin) preferred the hide/unhide solution.

Excel 2013 :: VBA - Trigger Event On Print Screen

Jun 27, 2014

I have a project report, which is user-configurable, allowing the user to customise the data that is displayed based on a number of parameters.

To ensure the report always prints neatly (the number of visible columns and rows varies, depending on the above parameters), so I have a macro that dynamically sets the print area of the worksheet.

At present, I call the macro from the workbook.beforeprint event, which works fine in terms of printing. Ideally however, I would like the macro to be called when CTRL+P is first pressed - i.e. the resulting 'print screen', containing a preview of the print out should reflect what will subsequently be printed, when the 'Print' button is then pressed.

I am not sure if this makes sense (Excel 2010 and 2013 are different from previous versions).

Excel Camera Tool - Print Preview Different From Display On Screen

Nov 27, 2012

I have place a camera-picture of a table on the right side of a chart. On the screen it looks great! (See below - with some redaction)

Problem Example.png

.... but when I print it the table expands off of the side of the chart. Scale is 100%, zoom is 100%, Excel 2010 (See below - with some redaction). Whether or not I have a print area does not seem to make a different in the problem. Also, it appears that this happens with any shape I put in that place, it's not specific to the camera tool.

How To Clear Contents Of Clipboard Before Tool Takes Screen Print In Excel VBA

Apr 20, 2014

I've have a tool/code that takes the screen prints of the active window (when I press F9) and pastes it in a word document.

But whenever I do copy some text or any other image and when I press F9 to take the screen print of the active window. I get the text pasted into the word, this is because the clipboard content has text first and then the screen print of the active window.

Instead When I press F9, I wanted the below to happen

1. Content from the Clipboard should be cleared

2. Take the screen print

3. Paste it in the word document.

Note: My tool/code already does 2 and 3. Looking for 1 alone, ,

Vlook Up: Combobox Shows The The First Column (only 1 Of Each) And The Second ComboBox Shows Me The Secondary List

Jun 9, 2006

I have a userform where I have 2 comboboxes. The first combobox shows the the first column (only 1 of each) and the second comboBox shows me the secondary list that correlates to the valuse in the first from column B. Now I have a text box that I am trying to get the value from column C depending on what I have in the first 2 comboboxes. What is the easiest way to do it? This is all in VB since it is a UserForm, and using Vlookup seems to be too many lines if I go that route. Is there a way to use Index and Match in VB where it would be more efficient? I attached just a sample of how the data would be layed out in the Excel sheet.

Print Entire Workbook Prints Pages Out Of Order And Makes Several Print Jobs?

Mar 26, 2013

All sheets are basically the same except some minor values, names and addresses. There is one page per sheet and all pages are in portrait format. The print preview shows all the pages in order but when I print it, it makes multiple print jobs of 1 to 2 pages each and prints them all out of order. I don't know why it is splitting up the workbook or why it changes the order. I print and reorder these weekly, which is a major pain. It comes out in the same order each time but it is the wrong order.

Excel 2007 :: Content Shown On Worksheet Different Than Print Preview And Print?

Jul 17, 2014

Since upgrading to Windows 2007 (I was already using Excel 2007) I am having issues with the content in the cells on the worksheet not appearing the same on Print Preview and when I print. On the worksheet the cell show to be at the best fit both horizontally and vertically. When I look at the contents under print preview, the contents are squashed from the top and cut off from the left. This happens whether I have the format in Top or Central align and is even worse if I use Bottom align. It is also somewhat worse if I have thickened boarders.

I am using TrueType Fonts.

Print Previewed A Worksheet And Find A Tiny Image With A Small Portion Of The Print Area

Mar 27, 2009

I just converted from Excel 2003 to 2007 and print previewed a worksheet and find a tiny image with a small portion of the print area. When I look at the sheet in page break preview mode, I see the 8.5 x 11 sheet broken up into approx 77 smaller sheets. When I try to move the page breaks to include the whole sheet it states the change cannot be made as it will result in an image less than 10%. I have attached two images - the first shows the print preview I get, and the second show the multiple pages when I view in page break.

Find Print Range And Print Invoices From 250 Tabs

Feb 24, 2014

I have a pretty large spreadsheet set up that invoices our clients. A few tabs in the front allow us to globally invoice if we did certain services for all clients and then we can also go into each tab and invoice each client for specific services performed on their property. Some invoices are two pages long and other may be up to seven pages long and anywhere in between... So that's the first issue, how do you find how many pages to print and then set the print range for each invoice.

The second issue centers around being able to print all the invoices at one time.

The spreadsheet is set up in this manner: A recap sheet we print to check off that each invoice was printed; an IIF statement to get the Excel info into QuickBooks; a template to set up each invoice's information with dates, dates services were performed,etc.; then there are five Global billing tabs where I can invoice all accounts globally or by their type of account (Saturday or Sunday open, 24/7 etc.); then we get into the tabs for each account. Each account has its own tab with an invoice loaded inside where we can itemize the services they received. Inside all these individual account tabs we have set up 'Zone' tabs where we can invoice all the clients we set up within a zone. There are about twenty of these tabs. Then at the end I have a few more tabs that aren't used any longer, there are about ten tabs there...

Is there a way I can hit Print and get all of my invoices to print out at one time versus having to go into each and every tab, set the print range, and then hit Print for all 250ish invoices?

This is the biggest complaint I have right now about the invoicing program I have set up...

My problem is this. If there is no text in say, address field 4 the resulting field in the invoice shows as a 0 eg,

NAME

ADD2
ADD3
0
POSTCODE

Formula That Only Shows Data Only If Different From Above?

Jun 19, 2014

I am trying to create a basic invoice spreadsheet.

On worksheet 1, I have days of the month A4 to A35. Columns B, C, D, E are headed.

Every hour of work I would enter a " 1 " in the correct cell for the day. For example, 1 hour, every segment of the day, I would enter "1" in cells Bx, Cx, Dx and Ex. This continues for the month;

On a 2nd worksheet, this is neatened up, and I have added formulas to work out the cost and type of call;

On the third worksheet, I want to display roughly the same, however when there has been no work on the day (ie the date displays "None" and the adjacent cells show: blank, blank, blank, blank, £0.00), I want it to skip the cell and display the next date which has data to show (ie a date). The data on the adjacent cells needs match with the date (in the same way as physically deleting a 'non worked' whole row).

This then on the invoice worksheet would look neat and display only the days actually worked.

What formula(s) could I use to do this.

Chart Menu Bar Always Shows

Aug 9, 2006

I need some vba code to

a) determine which of excel's menubars is active (Worksheet Menu Bar or Chart menu Bar)

b) delete the controls ie File, Edit, View etc menus from that menu bar

c) restore the controls to that menubar on workbook close

Normally this wouldn't be required but my version of excel is 2002 which has the Worksheet Menu Bar active and the work version is excel 2000 which has the Chart Menu Bar active.

I don't know why the Chart Menu Bar is active on the work system as there are no charts in my project.

Most of the development takes place at home so i need to be able to use vba to perform the above tasks

The menubar itself must remain active so i can add a custom menu to it.

Opening Worksheet-nothing Shows

Mar 4, 2007

I'm having an issue with a worksheet that I created. Apparently, every time that I go to open it, it gives me a Grey blank screen. Yet, I know the worksheet is behind this Grey screen. I went to full screen and I can see the work sheet in full view, but it always opens in this Grey screen. I'm not sure why its doing this, no other worksheets open in this matter. I have tried reinstalling excel and it still didn't fix this problem. But it is only happening with one particular worksheet. I'm sure it is just a setting that I might have changed, but I can't figure it out. The file isn't corrupt because the macros still work, I tested them.
