Worksheet Not Accepting Printing Defaults

Aug 22, 2006

I've created a worksheet that uses multiple print macros with defined margins. This works fine with the Epson printers I have, but a user has an HP Officejet Pro K550.

This printer has an option named "Minimize Margins". If this option is checked then you adjust the margins the way you want.

For some reason when this particular workbook is opened you have to manually go and check this option so that the margins can be manipulated. this is a problem b/c my macro prints several reports so it's impossible to set this option.

I then opened a different workbook and it accepted the default setting (option checked). For some reason the workbook I created doesn't.

Excel 2010 :: Printing Multiple Worksheets And Changing Printer Defaults

Jul 29, 2011

We have just refreshed our entire printer fleet to Xerox printers and as part of the project we have selected all defaults to B&W and duplex.

On a multi sheet excel file, If we click print then choose entire workbook and then change the print options to colour, it prints the only first worksheet in colour, and all the others in mono. i have read that excel treats each worksheet separately and does not cascade the changes made made in the first worksheet even if all sheets have been selected.

How can I get them all to print in colour?

We can set up another printer and change the defauts to colour but we dont want to go down that road and have 2 printers installed for each model.

Is there any code out there can will/ can change the properties of the first worksheet and cascade this throughout the workbook.

We use XP and W7 workstations and office 2003, 2007 and 2010. By the end of the year all workstations will be W7 and Office 2010.

VBA Not Accepting Changes?

May 3, 2014

I have a button on a userform that will generate certain text in a combo box. The combobox then goes to a worksheet. If I select a second button, I want the first information on the worksheet to clear and accept the new information from the next button.

NOTE: I have it as a combobox so I can either select it from the combobox or click the button. When I select the information from the combobox, it does clear out everything automatically.

Here is my code:

Private Sub CommandButton2_Click()
ComboBox1.Text = ComboBox1.Text + "PASS"
Worksheets("score").Range("b6") = Me.ComboBox1.Value
End Sub

What I think I am doing is clearing the cell, entering my text then going to the next text box, but when I click the second button (same code, text is "FAIL"), I then get "PASSFAIL" in cell B6.

I want it to clear out the previous entry and only use the new one, but it keeps all that I click even though I said to clear the contents.

Formulas Not Counting Before Re-accepting?

Jan 18, 2013

I have an xls-workbook that is saved in OpenOffice. It has simple formulas that shows correctly in Excel. Excel doesn't solve them before "re-accepting" (like going to formula bar and pressing enter). No editing of formula is needed at all (unless you count "enabling edit-mode" and accepting the empty edit as editing).

Set Print Defaults

Aug 22, 2009

I want "Print what" >> "Selection" (instead of Active Sheet) to be selected by default in the print dialog when I press Ctrl+P. How to do it?

See the image if you don't understand which dialog I'm referring to:

My second question is actually answered in a very old thread. I want to know if there is an alternate way or if the answer in old thread is still valid.
The question is "how to set default paper size?"

The answer given in the old thread ( is by going to Control Panel and changing printer settings. Since, Excel often shows only "blank" (with a dropdown containing the various paper sizes) against "paper size",

Date Defaults To 01/00/1900

Aug 25, 2009

I am working with an Excel file that was created in 2001, has not been updated since.

In the first column on the first tab, is a date field, starting from 12/31/2000.

I try to change this to 12/31/2008, and I get the return date of 01/00/00. When I select the cell, the formula bar indicates 12/31/2008, but the cell shows 01/00/00.

If I change it back to 12/31/2000, it is back to normal. I tried to enter 2/3/2009 in another cell, converting to date format, and the same thing: 0/1/00 (Jan 0, 1900)

This is a US date format.

Formula Defaults To GETPIVOTDATA Using Mouse

Oct 28, 2006

I have this problem with pivot tables:when I write a formula relating to a cell in the pivot table I don't get the usual basic cell refs (e.g. B4/b5) but I get something like GETPIVOTDATA("Vehicle No",$A$3,"Model Desc",...... etc etc

and I cannot copy and paste this formula!

I would like to know if there is a shortcut to use basic Cell refs because it is very boring always type the cell details in manually when using data from a Pvt table

Some weeks ago I had to move from excel 2000 to excel 2003 and It seems incredible to me that moving to a more recent release of excel become a step behind....

also using vba code?

How To Make 2 Cells On Worksheet Be Required To Be Filled In Before Printing

We have a form that has a dropdown list of selections but many people forget choose the reasons. How can I make these required fields that HAVE to be filled in in order to print.

Active Worksheet Switches To Page Break Preview After Printing?

Aug 7, 2013

I have a workbook with multiple sheets where the view for each sheet is the Normal view.

If I print the entire workbook, the active sheet changes to the Page Break Preview view after the printing finishes.

I have to then reset the view back to Normal.

I don't know why the active worksheet is changing. I don't want to annoy the people who will use this workbook by making them change back to normal view after each time they print.

Multiple Barcode Scanners: Prevent The Scan From Accepting Data Until The Macro Has Completed Its Cycle

I use a scanner that initiates a f2 command and trips my macro.

Printing Multiple Workbooks With Printing Preference As Landscape

Jan 15, 2012

I would like to know if there is a way to print several different workbooks at once but keeping my printing format which I would like to be Landscape and Fit to one page. Reason is simple as I work in a office where staff is handed in several jobs to do everyday. They finish the jobs and log all the info on the database. I log on to database and put all their daily diaries and because it is all over the place I have to go in each file and set printing preferences which takes an hour in the morning and hour in the evening. I could do with some sort of automation where all diaries are automatically printed in Landscape and Fit on one page.

Printing / Not Printing Ranges Based On Cell Contents

Apr 11, 2008

I have a report that is generated from a manufacturing process that looks like the example below. the report is 40 pages long when all the data is printed. i am looking for a way to only print this range if a dimension is "out of tolerance". if the dimension is within tolerance, there is always the "garbage" text of plus and minus. if every row is "within tolerance" in the range the cells in the OutTol column would all contain the "garbage" text but it will not always be identical. so, in summary, actual OutTol values = print and all "garbage" = not printed.

Misaligned Printing

Feb 12, 2007

I am automating a paper form that collects information from 7 other paper forms and then prints out the results. I have created an excel spreadsheet to do this but I am having problems getting the printed output to match the print preview.

I have inserted an image of the form into the sheet header and aligned the cells on the sheet so that the information is in the correct position when previewed in "print preview".

The problem is that, although this will print correctly on the machine I created it on, it is misaligned on any other machine I have tried.

Checkboxes Keep Printing Even Though Set Them To Not?

I have inserted checkboxes in an excel worksheet to turn on/off certain data. They are working just fine. But I have set them all to not print (by unselecting the checkbox that says "print" in the format dialogue). SOME of the checkboxes don't print, but most of them do. I can't figure out why.

I've attached the file so you can take a look.

Printing 2 Sheets In One Go?

I've noticed with a spreadsheet at work that if you print a sheet it also prints the other sheet.

The first sheet is the data and the second is a graph formed from this data.

Is there an options to set to do this or is because its a graph formed from the data sheet that it automatically prints?

Highlighting And Printing ...

May 8, 2008

I have attached a sample sheet which is for invigilation of exams. In columns D, E & F are the initials of people invigilating at different times. What I want to able to do is to print personised sheets for each person where there initals are in bold and the box has a black border around it. This is very labour intensive if I do it manually as have to highlight one person, print, unhighlight and rehighlight the next person and so on. What I was wondering is could I use a macro to automate this process. So it has a list of all the initals and it searches through and highlights the person and prints it and then moves onto the next.
