I'm new her! Why is my name, town and state being printed?

Q: I'm new her! Why is my name, town and state being printed?

I'm new here!

First I would like to say I'm a TBI survivor and I'm a male and 42 years old .
I was purchased an emachine computer with a Lexmark lasar printer,
Whenever I go to print something, be it a web site article or a personal document that was created using Microsoft Works Word Processor. Whatever is being printed my name appears at the VERY top and the city and state printed at the bottom.
I know little about computers so I'm trying to get an answer why this is being printed.
The only thing that I can come up with is MY NAME, CITY and STATE was somehow entered on this computer's Hard drive and is prints it because it's been entered by someone at the store before iyt was brought home and set up for me.

If there is someway that I can delete this info. being printed, PLESE tell me what to do EXACTLY!

Thank You!

A: I'm new her! Why is my name, town and state being printed?

That's very strange, it sounds like a 'Header and Footer' has been set up with that info and is in your template. (If Works uses such a template, I know Word does).
Try doing a Find (or Search depending on your version of Windows) for and rename any found to normal.old. Then test the printing again. If there is a problem you change the names back again.

I have an Access database used on daily basis to enter and print the maintenance work order in a report format. I have assigned a command button to print the required record. On clicking the button in the Form, a parameter query will run asking the user to put the record number to proceed. Once the correct record number is entered in the parameter text box, the report is previewed and the user click on the print button to print the same.

My question is as follows:

Is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now was already printed before? A kind of record keeping for the printed records.

Also, a message box should warn the user saying incase if the record was already printed, The record was previously printed, do you want to continue printing again?

Please tell me a way to perform the above in my Form.

A:Record keeping of the printed records & warning user when printed more than one time

could't you just add a field in the record for printed?

Then if printeed true, show warning, else show printable form.

Hi ya'll! I've got some mayor virus/spyware problems. I recently formated my computer and before that everything was fine. But since I installed every thing again, including my internet connections, the problems keep coming and I have no idea what I can do more.
I have installes Spybot and Adaware plus I use Norton Antivirus 2002 and like I said, it all worked before. But now some **** is messing up my computer. First of all I got a thing called Elitebar en ISTbar and Spybot can't remove that ****. I think that's making my internet connection verry verry verry slow. I also got a pop-up with search results for the most stuppid things. could someone please help me with this and tell me what to do? Thanx!


A:Big problems in town!

Elite Bar often travels in "packs" with other malware. so we'll need to start from the top.

Please download HijackThis - this program will help us determine if there are any spyware/malware on your computer. Create a folder at C:\HJT and move HijackThis.exe there. Double click on the program to run it.

1. If it gives you an intro screen, just choose 'Do a system scan and save a logfile'.
2. If you don't get the intro screen, just hit Scan and then click on Save log.
3. Get HijackThis Analyzer and save it to the same folder as the hijackthis.log file. Run HijackThis Analyzer and type in y if you agree. Open up the result.txt file created. Copy the whole result.txt log and post it in the forum. Do not fix anything in HijackThis since they may be harmless.

I will move your thread to HJT Help, where the Analusts canget to it more quickly.

Hi all-

I have been reading some of the other threads on a new either virus or spyware that is making the rounds. It appears to be a variant of the igetnet problem, but on the system I have, none of the bho.dll or bho001.dll (variants 5 and 6 of igetnet) are on the system, as are non of the other dlls named on the igetnet description.

What I have done (the formalities)

virus program - running AVG6.0free, nothing found.
housecall.trendmicro- scanned several times, all other programs closed.

spyware proggies-
Spybot S&D - finds the host file problems, tries to fix, they get changed right back. Finds other things the trojan (my suspicion) downloads, which seem to be random.
Ad-awareSE. Same as above.
CWshredder - doesnt fix the hijack either.
A variety of other programs I will describe below.

Before I go any further, lets start with some logs.

Hijackthis- note that the only open programs are the broadcom wireless card controller sw, and firefox (this window!!) and AVG.

Just a quick post to warn anyone who is not already aware, that the latest incarnation of Cryptowall is doing the rounds!
I have just completed a malware clean on a laptop infected with Crytowall 3.0. So far I have managed to illiminate the virus and it's assosciated trojans, but I was unable to recover the RSA key to decrypt the customers personal data. The key is sent by the virus to crimals remote server and thoroughly wiped from the victims machine.
From what I can gather, Cryptowall 3.0 seems to have hit the UK in February this year, and apart from using cpu and memory resources to perform the encryption, does not reveal itself to the user untill at least some of the files have been encrypted.
This virus is the most sofisticated malware I have yet come across, and seems to use vulnerabilities in browser plugins such as Adobe flashplayer. It also looks like the virus is smuggled in in pieces and re-assembled once on the victim's PC.The most up to date Malwarebytes can find it, but I had to remove the hard disk and connect it to my test machine to ensure a complete clean. Using safemode on the laptop did not work, fully.
The original Cryptowall originated in Russia, but there is not enough info yet to determine the latest source. I noticed a number of US based IP addresses before I shut down the network traffic to the servers, and also noted the US based telephone numbers on the ransom notes.
My advice is - backup! Everyone needs to make ... Read more

Hello everyone, I've been trying to rid my PC of this nuisance for nearly two days now. I followed bits of advice given on your site and managed to throw out the initial spysheriff.exe's, the rigid blue desktop and the false spyware alarms.However, cute little BHO's (usually ***32.exe's) keep attempting to install themselves in C:\windows or C:\windows\system32, although stopped by Microsoft AntiSpyware, or manually by me. Also, three programs: iezz32.exe, hh.exe and dialer.exe on C:\windows keep coming back every time I delete them. I wonder if these are still dregs of the 'ole Spy Sheriff or if it is a different malware altogether. I'm an amateur at this, and have only been trying to follow the threads on your site thus far, so any help would be much appreciated.

A small company is providing WiFi internet. I want to connect my desktop to this service but the closest area that I can receive the signal is 10m away.

I thought of buying 802.11g USB receiver and 10m USB extension cable. Both are available in eBay but I read at that USB cable should not be longer than 5m.

Another option is to use 802.11g USB receiver connected to USB female to ethernet male adapter, this connected to 8-pin RJ45 female to female ethernet extension and the last one connected to normal long male to male ethernet cable which connected to the desktop.

Third options is to buy 802.11g USB reciever that has RP-SMA antenna and then instead of extending USB cable extend the RP-SMA cable (10m cable) and put the antenna where the signal can be recieved

Fourth options buy 802.11g USB receiver and 802.11 signal repeater. connect USB receiver to the computer and put the repeater where I can receive the signal.

there many other options but I want to know the best and cheapest method to connect to this service( I buy thing online and I prefer eBay and max I want to pay is $50 so it is good to give links to ebay as recommendations)?

What info do I need/how to set up in order to use Remote Desktop across cable providers?

My town in Oman has Wifi internet service provider. They use advance Wireless G router that distrubute the signal to the whole town. I am 2.5km away from them and I am going to buy the device on the link

to connect to thier services. the device is connected to the computer through a USB port. The company gave me username and password and I can use thier services with one computer at one time.

Now, I want to make home network and connect the service to more than one computer but it appear to the company as I am connected to one computer. My house is two floors cement house.

I know that I have options to connected the Wifi adapter to "female USB to male eithernet adapter" and the connect the last to the input of a router. However, I don't know what are a good router that can trasmit the signal on two floors cement house and if there are better options.

It is good idea to give links from ebay for item that is shipped to Oman.

2 Questions, i am thinking that where i come from broadband is very expensive and on a 40 euro broadband package you get a 1meg line that has a 8gig cap which is ridiculous,

so i decided setting up a wireless network in my town would be cool, not to make money but to get myself a better uncapped internet connection and to enjoy the learning experience.

I live in a small town and i know loads of ppl who havent broadband as its to expensive for them, i could get a 4meg connection uncapped i would share it with maybe 7 households who would be lite users (so i can go download mad). Id charge them maybe 20euro each which is half of the price of the cheapest internet package that has a cap, the total cost of a 4meg line with 256kbs up and no cap is 140 euro a month.

Now me two Questions are,

a) the equipment needed to set up a wireless internet network between 7 households within 1 km radius and all in line of sight of each other how much would this cost to buy the hardware? Also is there and websites that i could get information from?

b) Does anyone know of any software that i can use to limit everyone to a certain connection. (See i could give myself a 1meg connection and share the other 3meg between 7 houses which works out at worst 438kbs connection if we were all online at same time and give myself an upload of 80kbs and share the other 174kbs between 7 house which would be 24kbs upload for them each if we were all online at anyone time)

Hi everyone.
I'm having some problems connecting to my wireless networking. It was all set up and working great for months- I have a Netgear wireless router and a Dell Truemobile 1400 Dual-Band and I'm running XP. However after extensive problems with trojans I decided to cut my losses and reinstall XP. Since then I've reinstalled all the drivers and other important software that came with the laptop, but it has problems connecting to my router (which was not changed). The laptop connects to other networks in the neighborhood, which is something I guess, but the signal is low and i'm kind of partial to actually using my own. For about an hour or so last night it actually did connect to my network out of nowhere, and it was glorious. Then I had to reboot, and I got nothing.

I notice that my TrueMobile 1400 LAN card utility actually says TrueMobile 1300 Adapter in the Hardware Details section. But the in Programs it's definitely the 1400. Drivers for the 1400 are installed but the installation CD warned me off of installing them for the 1300 because it wasn't compatible with my hardware. Could this be part of the problem? I know there's nothing wrong with the Netgear router and I know that it was working last night and for months before that. Any ideas? I've been through everything I can find on this and I'm still stumped. Why does it see my network sometimes and not other times?

i'm having some serious issues with my heroes of might and magic IV game. i've got winXP and all 4 patches up to vers 3, which i think is the latest.
the problem is this.. for no apparent reason i will suddenly lose the ability to divide my army. i lose the bottom bit. (i think they're called troop slots) it just disappears, everywhere, i get stuck in towns cos i cant get troops out, i cant divide armies in the adventure map. and it doesnt come right after a few turns either, or a lot of turns actually.
i had a look through the manual incase it was an actual feature and i was being stupid. but having looked through the manual and not finding it, i did my next piece of investigative genius, which involves pressing every button on the keyboard to see if it was hotkeyd in. it was uneventful as only it could be. i've tried the 3do website but for some reason it wont load, and stops due to errors every time. so i cant find anything on that.

so if anyone has seen or knows how to deal with this. could you please let me know.

many thanks

Quote: "did my next piece of investigative genius, which involves pressing every button on the keyboard"

HAHAHA! Atleast I know I'm not the only one

Seems like a graphical issue to me. I've never played that game so I can't provide detailed instructions or anything, nor can I provide a real definitive answer. However, I'd suggest updating your video drivers. You might also want to experiment with the video settings in the game itself. I know I've had troubles with the interface in different games because of bad drivers or because the game was released before the driver or hardware was released, etc.

If you can keep your save-games, or back them up manually, you might want to try uninstalling and reinstalling the game. Most of the time this will clear up any issues.

Hello Bleeping Computer,

The ?Urban Renaissance? of Scarborough ? An International Business Force in the Making.

Scarborough becomes one of the UK?s first coastal towns to provide visitors ? it receives over five and a half million a year - with free broadband wifi access this week, with the launch of ?Freebay wifi? at the North Yorkshire town?s South Bay seafront. As well as providing coverage for users along the Sandside area, the wifi range extends across the whole of Scarborough?s harbour and marina, bringing free wifi access to the yachts, motor and fishing boats moored there.

Initially the network will be supplied by two broadband lines running at approximately 5Mbps, both with a contention ratio of 20:1 which means that the wireless access points will be able to each handle at least 50 simultaneous users.
Hardware costs have been jointly funded by Yorkshire Forward and South Bay Traders Association, with support for installation provided by G2 Security and Deepdale Computer Services. Internet connections have been funded by Corrigan's Amusements and the Golden Grid Restaurant, with the wireless access sites provided by South Bay Traders Association.

Small town boy reboots Microsoft

GC Shekhar

Chennai,*August 6, 2006

He'd wanted to be the next Dhanraj Pillai, but the vista that destiny opened up for A Mahesh led to greener pastures in the world of technology.
The 24-year-old from small town Tamil Nadu has created a software that will add considerable muscle to Vista, Microsoft's brand new operating system due for launch next year.
In all probability, Vista will incorporate Mahesh's creation, which is an image browser, image editor, web browser, system tools and disk manager rolled into one.
In fact, Microsoft has already validated and awarded the product BETA2 iBRO.NET a patent protection certificate.
This means anyone may make use of Mahesh's product using the validation key but would need to pay Microsoft a royalty a part of which would reach this shy lad from Palayamkottai in southern Tamil Nadu.
The first member of his family to reach the post-graduate level, Mahesh developed the BETA2 iBRO.NET as the fifth-year project for his integrated M Sc course in computer science. He chose Vista's developer platform, where individuals are invited to contribute features for Vista.
"For sheer conceptualisation and acumen, his creation shows enormous scope and maturity. It's a full fledged tool that would not only remove deficiencies in Vista but add never-seen features in the OS," explained Dr Krishnan, professo... Read more

This is something that has been bugging me for a while now, and I've been unable to solve this problem. Perhaps someone out there can provide some guidance.

Sometimes, I'm unable to print things (such as online coupons) because I'm told that my printer is set to "Keep Printed Documents." I've tried disabling this setting via the Advanced tab under the printer's properties. However, when I do this, click Apply then OK, and close the tab, the setting automatically reverts back to "Keep Printed Documents". Does anyone know why this is happening? It's sort of frustrating to not be able to set the printer settings the way you choose.

I appreciate any tips/suggestions you might have. Thanks!

I have searched to find an answer to this problem of faded pictures when printed from windows photo gallery. I have seen a few others having the same problem, but no solutions. I am hoping that someone now can help.

I can print pictures from other software on my computer, from the internet, etc, with great photo quality. When I print from Windows photo gallery they are very light and faded looking. I have made sure the adjustments are for my printer.

It seems that most of the people experiencing this problem had canon printers. Does anyone have a solution to this?

I have found the solution to this problem, you need to untick the checkbox for "borderless printing", this is how to do it:

Don't print much multi page output, so am NOT sure when this problem began.

Originally, the pages on my HP DJ855C were printed as expected: page-1 first, then page-2, etc; this resulted with page-1 being on the bottom of the stack. Depending on the application being used, there was often a Print-Order option available for Back-to-Front printing so that the last page would be printed first and then page-1 would be printed last and be on the top in the stacker.

NOW, things seem to have reversed:
If I do NOT ask for the Back-to-Front, then I seem to get it anyway (i.e., page-1 last and on the top). but if I want the original order (i.e., page-1 first and on the bottom) then I must use the Back-to-Front option.
It seems as though the default has become Back-to-Front and then selecting the option for Back-to-Front re-reverses the order and the result is Front-to-Back.

Possibly this reversal happened when I went to Win/XP; possibly it happened with the installation of some piece of software.

Q. Has anyone else had this exxperience?

Please tell me where I might change some parameter to make the option of Front-to-Back actually print the page-1 first like it did originally?

Any advice apprecaited.


A:Order of Pages Printed


Go into your printers and faxes options off of your start menu.

Select your printer, right click the mouse and click on printing preferences.
On the features tab at the bottom there is a option for start printing from last page. If there is a check mark in the box next to it, click there with the mouse and uncheck it and then click on apply and ok and you should be all set after that?

The problem I am having is that when I go to print tax return forms from the IRS site or New York Tax Dept site, the form prints "short", that is, the last four or five lines of each page do not print.

You cannot save the data in these forms, they will only save as a blank form. Your only option is to print it.

However, although Adobe tells how to cure this problem ( by clicking File-Print and going down the menu which comes up to "printer scaling", then chosing "print to fit page", this only works if there is a
FILE menu on the left hand side of the page.

In these tax sites, the forms do not have a tool bar above allowing you to chose a FILE menu.
You can right click the mouse and chose PRINT, however it will print a cut off page.

SOOOOOOO do I either:
1. Get a standard Tool Bar to appear on top of the form, on these web site pages, or
2. use some other device or method to print these documents to fit the page.

If any of you are about to suggest right clicking on the printer icon PRINTERS, in the control panel, forget printer does not bring up anything about "Print Scaling".

Hopefully, some geek out there will read this and solve my problem. Thank you. 44 Guy

A:printed pages cut off at bottom

Every computerized tax form that I have available at the website of the sponsoring governmental agency...and reflects a printed version option which has resulted in everything being printed properly.

I'm not sure where Adobe figures into tax preparation.

If you are using a 3d-party app to do taxes...then the problem resides with the support for that application, IMO.

Other than dogging the print preview, and struggling with the size in any pertinent image editing software, has anyone found a reliable way to limit or control the size of a printed web document?
to wit:
I scanned an odd shaped document, 3x8" to email to myself at another site, and the printed form was big enough for two pages. What a waste.
I print receipts regularly and they, 99% of the time have a "trailer" on a last page that has stuff like web site address or URL, a Secure Website emblem, or other, clearly unnecessary printing. My introduction to Windows word processing (WordPerfect) had, and I still use, a "makeitfit" command. Invoking such a command AUTOMATICALLY when printing from the web seems like a simple, brainless way to conserve'll give me a fractional font (e.g. 11.9 vs. a 12) and would prevent the idiotic tendency of a printed page to only have the leftward 80%, l which leaves off the important stuff like the prices...(you gotta print landscape to avoid this)
And I thought a computer was to make life easier, boy was I ever misled)

A:printed size of web documents

The problem is that web pages are usually coded to make them look good on screen, and that tends to make them "unfriendly" when printing.

Web pages designed for printing do exist, and it works well in those (few) cases.

Cutting and pasting into a word processor is sometimes the only workable solution.

I've spent the last four hours trying to solve this/use info that's similar to my problem to no avail. I feel I'm so close I can smell the answer is near!

I have a form I use for work that I manually have to fill in 50 times a day with mostly the same information. This is definitely a job for a computer!

Ideally, I would like to open the spreadsheet and have a button that says 'Print' and it will print what I need - 50 forms with the right information.

So far I have done the following:

Created a custom page size (16cm x 14.7cm)
Scanned an original to use as a background so I can line up the information
Adjusted the Excel boxes to print the info in the right place.

Now I need to print the following number ranges as identifiers:

1 - 22, 29-42 and 51-54

I feel I'm close with using this macro:

Private Sub Workbook_BeforePrint(Cancel As Boolean)
[copy] = [copy] + 1
End Sub

I use both Excel 2003 and 2007, depending on where I am!

I have NO experience of macros until today, so any advice is very welcome.

I have a problem with my Word documents. When I try to print them, the right edge is cut off. I thought it was my computer or my printer, so I took it to another computer, and the same thing happened.

The problem is in the files themselves. How do I change the files so they function as they used to? This has been the case with more than 20 files, which were made at different times.

My computer used to warn that the form I was using was too wide, and ask did I want to go ahead. I would select yes, it would print, and would look just fine. Now it does not ask that question.

I have an Access database used on daily basis to print maintenance work order. Each work order is assigned with an auto field No. I have a commend button assigned to print each record in a report format. On clicking command button, i enter the record number to be printed and it previews the report and check for accuracy of data entered. Once checked, i click on the print icon to print the same.

My question is, is there any method to find out the record i am going to print now is already printed before? A kind of record keeping of the printed records. Also, the same method shall help me to find out how many times each record is printed?

Hope someone can help me

Only happens in Internet Explorer 7.0 -tried using Firfox and that appears okay- any suggestions -anyone? (thanks in anticipation)

open IE, click tools > internet options > advanced tab

When i try to print something the documents appear in my print queue then are deleted before they even begin to print, my printer was working fine until yesterday and now this

Please help


A:Printer deletes documents before they are printed

G'day steviejay, sounds like you have an intelligent printer that is censoring your output!
That is a worry, I haven't seen that problem previously.
You might try having a look in your control panel, system, devices or device manager, with a bit of luck when you scroll down through all your devices you will find a USB printer, (assuming yours is usb) if you open that item you should see something like "this devise is working properly" which is a good start for troubleshooting.
There should be no yellow exclamation marks on this item.
Are you quite sure your print queue in the print manager is being actually deleted?
What kind of printer is it?
The assumption is that it is a PC using a windows variant.
Cheers, qldit.

I have had my problem for some time and had a work around which is no longer applicable hence I get a white screen where message should be so I don't know what is being said.

My problem started about 6 or 8 months ago on Outlook Express. At that time I was using dial up and changed over to with their e mail program Total Access. My problem immediately disappeared. One month ago I switched over to High Speed and the person doing the custom install saw I used Outlook Express so he reenergized (non computer word) the program. The custom installer saw my INBOX with about 30+ messages that go back a long way. EACH ONE LINE description was complete, meaning To: xxx,
From: YYY, Subject: ZZZ, and anything else that showns on the ONE LINE.

When I double click on one of the inbox messages I FIND MY PROBLEM! Everything that showed before is shown again, but now greyed out since it has to do with basics. HOWEVER, the text area (where the message should be) is 100% pure white. I have double clicked all 30+ messages and get the same thing,...a pure white screen.

I thought it might have something to do with installing SP-2 on my XP Home Edition BUT SP-2 was installed about 6 months ago and my e mail problem started about 8 months ago.
That is my problem! Can anyone offer suggestions?

A:No Outlook Express Messages Are Printed

Hi George-2

Welcome to Tech Support Guy Forums!

So if I understand correctly, you can send and receive emails ok.

The problem lies in that the messages you receive are blank inside?

If you run your mouse over the inside of the message, does anything show up in the highlighted/selected area?

Perhaps your fonts have a white color?

Are you able to create a new message and see the fonts inside?

Let us know.

Anything I print off the web or email says "Network + Job Functions" at the top of the page and the date at the bottom. Sure, I've been to websites pertaining to the job functions but I never saved anything with that name. How can it be printing at the top of any page?
If I print a document that I made and saved from Wordpad, not anything from the net, it prints fine with no header. I looked at the printer settings dialog box and it shows nothing with this title.
Thanks, Jim

A:Printed documents show same heading

If you are using IE, at the top of the page click on file and page setup and see what you have under header and footer. You probably need to change those.

I bought a parallel to usb printer cable to make my HP Laserjet 4L to work on my Vista dell laptop and it worked. Then I upgraded to Win 7 64 bit. Now it won't work. It sees it, installs fine, just won't print. no errors. Can it be a "cable driver" (never heard of such a thing until I started researching this problem) if it worked with Vista? It's a no-name cable, so won't likely have a driver that I can find.

Is there anything I can do but replace the cable?

I doubt that I can post this question here but I assume it'll be removed if not.

I have an HP printer, 2540, wireless printer. Works fine.

I started to print a pdf file. Because it was a large file I choose the 'booklet' option, which prints 4 pages on one side, then, when everything of the even numbers (I think, not sure) has printed, you will get a message on the pc telling you how to replace the already printed pages in the printer so it can print on the backsides.

When I saw the first batch I decided I didn't like it. So when the message with instructions on how to replace the already printed paper, I went in the printer's menu, highlighted the name of the document and did 'cancel'. In this printer menu it now said it was 'deleting' the document. But it didn't. I waited about half an hour. I turned the printer off and back on. I closed the document. But still the printer menu said 'deleting'.

I opened the document up again, changed the settings for the printer (as in one sided, normal size) and accidentally hit 'print'. I then noticed that - in the printer menu - the 'new' document showed up above the one that still said it was deleting. But it still didn't print. I went in the print menu again and highlighted the new document and did 'cancel' and it did cancel it.

But the old document is still sitting there, 'deleting'. I can not get past that. Any suggestions wo... Read more

A:Cannot delete partly printed document from cue

There's a way to force these to delete, if you don't mind a little typing. You need to open a command prompt by running cmd.exe. If you're unsure of how to do that, tell me which operating system you're using and I can walk you through that. This should open up a black window, and you need to type in the following commands sequentially, hitting the Enter key after each command.
net stop spooler
del %systemroot%\system32\spool\printers\* /q /f /s

net start spooler
The first command stops the printing service, allowing you to carry out the second command, which deletes any jobs in the queue. The last command re-starts the printing service, and you can try running a test print. Once that's all done, you can just close the black window.

Run the following:

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it to your desktop.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system (32 bit or 64 bit). If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.

Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) in the same directory the tool is run. Please copy and paste it to your reply.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt). Please attach it to your reply.

I have a gradebook that is very different from traditional gradebooks. Each class is a separate file and then each student has their own worksheet so I can individually track their proficiency on a variety of tasks (By all means tell me if this is stupid and recommend an easier way). When I want to print out a students gradebook sheet for a conference, how do I get their name (which is on the tab, to print with the printed page?


A:How do I get Worksheet tabs to print when sheet is printed?


A short answer ...
ActiveSheet.PageSetup.CenterHeader = ActiveSheet.Name
A question though ... would it be somewhat effective to loop through all sheets in a file and do this? Also, how about looping through all files in a folder and doing this? Would it not be easier to do them all at once, or is this a 'one-shot deal'?

Also, btw, you can do this with LeftHeader, RightHeader, LeftFooter, CenterFooter & RightFooter. Other format attributes can also be added if desired.

Hi All, Please Help !!!!!

I set the printer to Fast Mode. After few month used, now every day morning I print.
The first few pages printed are not clear (especially black color), then the following pages are printed fine. Why ??????

A:HP BusinessJet 2200 First Few Pages Printed Not Clear

I'm guessing that the ink jet ports are drying up over night and it takes a couple of pages being printed before the ink is flowing correctly. I think using fast (draft) mode send less ink to the heads or less ink is available because you are printing faster.

Three days ago when I tried to print from the web and then WORD there was no installed printer. I checked and the printer was still installed but when printing a document the print screen said their was no printer installed. I checked and the print spooler was not working. So I downloaded the Microsoft tool MicrosoftFixit.Printing.Run.exe. I ran it and presto the printer worked but only once and when I went to print again, again the print box showed that there was no printer installed. So I have to run the tool every time I want to print a page then restart the computer. A royal pain and time waster.

Something is turning the spooler off and not allowing individual programs to see the installed printer and therefore reports that there is no installed printer.

2nd issue. this is a new laptop (ACER) and there is no LED light to show "Caps Lock". I did find a setting that flashes the screen and makes an audible beep. However, my wife has the exact same computer and hers has a 2" x 2" box appear each time she puts cap Lock on. Which is way less distracting than audible beeps and flashing screens. Is there a setting for this? I have not found one in the Microsoft website for Windows 7.

When I arrange the worksheet columns to be only as wide as they need to be, the print preview (and the actual print out) has extra space after (to the right of) the last entry in the cell. So a cell that looks like : |xxx|, when printed, looks like : |xxx |. Can that be remedied ? The work-around I have found, is to make the original columns too narrow, so that the rightmost contents are hidden from view - that is really a quite undesirable method, though it achieves a 'correct' printout.Bastymessage edited by Sebastian42

A:Excel 2007 printed columns is too wide

How are you setting the columns to be "only as wide as they need to be"? Are you manually setting them or are you doubling clicking the column separator so that Excel sizes them automatically?I have experienced times when setting them automatically looks good on the screen when viewing the spreadsheet, but prints differently than what is shown. It may have something to do with the print drivers (which I can't control at work which is where I usually see the problem) but I'm not sure.Are you sure that there isn't actually a trailing space in the cells?Have you tried changing fonts just to see what happens?I'm just tossing stuff out for you to consider since I can't actually test anything or see your spreadsheet from where I'm sitting.Click Here Before Posting Data or VBA Code ---> How To Post Data or Code.
