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

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

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.

I have a generic worksheet created from a Word Template (Bill of Lading Template if that helps) and I want to have the user enter input such as address to, PO #, CO #, Quantity of Pieces/Lbs, i.e. only certain boxes of the table. Once the user prints this form, I would like for it to clear only these certain boxes. Is there a macro I could create to do this? I created one so that it clears the boxes, but I am unsure if I can make one that automatically runs once I click print. Any help you can give is appreciated.


A:Creating Macro in Word to clear worksheet one Printed

Hi, welcome to the forum.
If you already have a macro then all you need to do is trigger it once the sheet is printed.
You can do this by using an event.
I would have to look it up, but if you Google for Worksshet on event print then you need sometinh like AfterPrint .
I'll see if I can find something but you could try a search via Google and see what you can find too.

Just fopund this one ...

Maybe it can give you an idea

Hello Everyone,
I have tried searching and searching for this problem but nothing seems to come up with this particularly odd problem. I'm actually running 3rd party software hosted on an AS/400 system but from a Windows 7 32-bit computer. If I right-click the title-bar of the window and select print, the print dialog box comes up asking for the printer I want to use. I select one, then click "Print" and the following comes out on the page....
<See Sample.jpg> (Of course, that's not an actual page, it's a representation of what you'd see on the page, but it's accurate despite the fact that it's color. Anyway, the print screens come out light and don't scan in well.)
As you can see, the print dialog box is clearly visible on the page. This seems to randomly crop up only on Windows 7 boxes and once it starts, we seem to have no way to stop it.

The strangest thing has happened in my excel 2007, running in vista 64. As of yesterday, it no longer displays the individual tabs for worksheets in a workbook of existing files. Any new blank file it will show the standard three tabs. Its not a problem with the file which when viewed in vista 32 or xp still shows the tabs. I've searched the ms knowledgebase and the web, but this appears to be a one of a kind. The "unhide" worksheet feature is greyed out in excel.

Any ideas, suggestions would be welocme

Thanks, Mozman

A:Excel Worksheet Tabs Disappeared in vista 64

Okay, let's try this:

1) Open the existing workbook.
2) Click on the Office Orb
3) Click "Excel Options"
4) Click "Advanced" in the left pane
5) In the left pane, scroll down to "Display options for this workbook"
6) Check the box that says "Show sheet tabs"

Right now, I haven't found a way to check it for everything, if it's a problem for multiple workbooks.

Hopefully this solves your problem

However what I have done to date may or may not be the best way and I would appreciate guidance and advice. I have attached worksheet for tracking attendance for my team at work. I have tried (as a macro beginner) to have a summary sheet with names on. This needs to copy to the other tab sheets but names only. I have used tab links for all first summary tab and pivot table tab but only want to link names from summary tab.

I have a macro to sort all the sheets which works fine but omits summary sheet. I also have the button for a macro to delete a line (havent been able to make delete a line work as it removes whole line so that the full array of names starts to decrease as eah name is deleted.

When copying tabs in Excel 97, instead of incrementing the sheet number in
VBA Microsoft Excel Objects, a '1' is added to the sheet number i.e. sheet 4
becomes sheet 41 instead of sheet 5. If copied again it becomes sheet 411
then 4111 etc up to about 24 1s at which time it stops copying all together. This has just started happening and I don't think I've changed any settings.

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.

Hi All,

I dont know if i've got this in the right forum but i've got a WinXP Pro Machine so thought i'd try it here.

The problem is that my print queue seems to retain the print jobs although the print jobs have already been printed out (i've seen it retain jobs from 5 days ago). I happens from all sorts of programs.

My PC is acting a print server (ie, the printer is connected to my PC via Parallel and i have shared my install of this printer).

In the print queue, the status indicates "sent to printer" and Pages "x/x - eg 3/3" however the print jobs remains in the queue and do not disappear unless i manually do a "cancel". If i were to turn off and then on the PC, all these print jobs will print out again without any user interaction.

So, can anyone tell me if this is a driver issue or is it something to do with the printer or Parallel port configuration.

As far as i know, i've got "bi-directional support" selected but i'm still to find out what modes i've got parallel set to eg. EPP or ECP or both.

Any help would be great. thank you.

I'm helping to develop a web application that uses iframes. On the main page (outside of all frames), we have a div that we use to display and print forms. We also have 2 nested iframes; the innermost iframe contains the main page content. When printing, we use extensive CSS and Javascript (contained in the outermost window) to hide everything except the print div.

When I use File > Print Preview, it always displays the correct preview; that is, the outermost window which contains the print div. Printing from the Print Preview works as it should. However, when I use File > Print, it seems to print whatever window has focus, not the entire page (outermost window). Therefore my print div doesn't get printed and all I get is a printout of whatever is currently onscreen. Why doesn't the print out from File > Print match what is shown in the print preview?

A related issue occurs when using JavaScript's window.print(). When I call window.print from within the print div, it prints as it should. But when I call parent.parent.window.print() from within the double-nested iframe, IE still only prints the window that has focus, not the outermost window (as shown by "parent.parent."). And since they just clicked on a button in the innermost frame, the innermost frame has focus, my print div doesn't print and all I get is a printout of whatever is currently onscreen.

I have a HP C4850 configured to work through the wireless. I can ping the printer and access its internal web page. Network configuration prints out no fails or errors so as far as I can tell everything is configured correctly. If I send it a print job, a small notepad document with the text "test" in it, it won't print. Eventually it just seems to forget the print job is there. However if I send the job, then print the network device configuration, the print job will print immediately after. I did this 3 times and it was consistent in its behavior.

After upgrading from Win 2K to Win XP Pro, and Office XP to Office 2003, some of my Excel macros that fetche data from Factset in a batch and create multiple sheets no longer rename the sheet tabs on one of the 3 PCs I use at work. The other PCs with the same upgrade do not have this problem.

The tabs are supposed to be renamed with the descriptive data from respective sheets. These macros were created over 4 years ago and it was the first time that it failed.

Another VB based application built by Factset in 2002 which uses Factset' s Script function to fetch data from its PA application and export the results to Excel also is having seemingly related problem.

The process is supposed to create multiple reports and export them on separate sheets in the same workbook. However, even though the reports ran through and created a big file, it ended deleting all the other sheets except the last one with a tab name "Sheet1 (x)".

What could be the possible sources for this problem and how canI get around it?

Hi all,

I am trying to Print a seperate worksheet in a different workbook.


I have an excel file with a list of Periods for different Sites (I am using this a ticksheet for when people return the sheets)
Within this excel file i want a print command button which opens up the excel file relating to the site location
Once the command has opened up the excel file, i want a msg box to appear asking "Which period would you like to print" then once they press the period number it prints the worksheet relating to the period number.
For example: In my Site 1 workbook, i have 13 tabs, each tab has different information. I want to print period 3.

When i click the print command button i want it to open a message box asking me which period i want to print, then after putting "3" in the msg box i want the vba code to then open up the "Site 2" file and print "Period 3" worksheet.

I have attached an example of the Period ticksheet return sheet.

A:How to print a worksheet in a different workbook

Hi, I looked at the sample you attached.

Now, where have you saved the raltaion (filename) which corresponds to this row? Will the full filename and location be in C5 in this case?

I am thinking more in the line of double click the cell corresponding to the site and period and then open that sheet to print, but then I need to know where the full path and filename can de found on this sheet

I have been having a similar issue with trying to define a print area. the area i need to print changes with each time i refresh the data.

Currently i have set a print area manually but this wont work when i start getting more data.

I need to add/change my code in someway so that it only prints the pages of the worksheet which have data in them.

Annoyingly each page of the sheet is a table and so has headers for each column which any function would, i assume, class as data and so i only want them to print if the table gas data.
The good news is that if the first row in the table has data in then i need that whole page printed anyway.

my current code is:

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.

Hi Everyone,

How do I go about changing defaults or setting up a permanent print orientation and size for a particular worksheet which will be used on 9 different PC's. I've already set the print area, as the whole sheet doesn't need to be printed, but I need the printed area to fit across a landscape sheet. The number of sheets to be printed will vary as the people using the workbook will be viewing different row amounts to each other. I just need to have it set up so when they choose to print they don't have to set up the page themselves, they just click "Print" and away they go. Can I somehow 'lock' print option selections to the sheet?

Sounds like you need a macro to control what is happening.

The macro would go through the process that you would normally do manually. You can then put a print button on the worksheet, that the user clicks on and hey presto.

Using standard Windows Photo Viewer you can print multiple images per page. Quantity depends on your page size. Options for letter size are: 1, 2, 4, 9, 35 images per page.

To work with multiple jpg images you need to highlight desired images by clicking on them one by one while holding CTRL key or highlight all files in the folder by pressing CTRL+A. Then right click one of them and select Print.

In printing wizard you need to chose Printer, Paper size, quality and number of images per pager (far right part of the window, scroll down for more options).

If the end result you are looking for is being able to print many pages on one sheet (or both sides, or booklet, or flipped sideways, etc,etc.) then I think it is just better to use a utility or tool to get around many of Microsoft's problems.

What i want to do is to create a macro (in either work1 or work2 spreadsheet) that copy numbers of every 24 hours from column C in work1 to each record (each record presents a day) also having 24 hours in work2. I can copy them manually but i guess it takes some time to do it.

Hi All,
I found an old post ( which is exactly the same issue I'm having...
...however the thread starter said that they managed to sort but didn't explain how! A little frustrating...I've search for similar issue but couldn't find one so sorry if this has been covered elsewhere.
Anyway in short, I have an interactive dashboard whereby it only shows one worksheet at a time both for aesthetic and functionality reasons. A user moves through the workbook via buttons. A number of worksheets may lead to one worksheet or visa-versa. Because of this I'd like a macro that when the user clicks the 'Back' button they are returned to the last active page they were on but hides the page they have just come from, so still keeping the one worksheet format.
Currently I'm writing a separate code for going back to a particular sheet, laborious considering I have 60+ sheets (and counting). Plus I intend to use this dashboard format for other uses in the future so having a catch-all macro to go back would be very useful.
Help much appreciated.

Hi all,

I am trying to write an excel program that will log ledger entries monthly, but I also need a running ledger for the year. What I have done so far is to make a workbook with 13 worksheets. One for my running ledger and one for each month. What I would like to do is write a formula that will read the month column entry in the running ledger sheet and automatically send it to the corresponding month sheet. I have tried an IF function, but it won't do more than seven months. Also, the data need to be sent to the next open row in that corresponding month. For example, if B200 = 7 (month), then it would need to be sent to B2 of the sheet named July because it would be the first entry for that month. And then series from there. Am I making any sense? Am I wishing for the impossible?

I sincerely hope that the description below is fairly comprehendible.

I am constructing a table in excel of movies with the actors, actresses, director, etc. On the first sheet (named Movie Info), column 4 is an ever growing list of movies. Across row 8 is a list of actors, actresses, directors, etc. Across the row of the title and under the appropriate person who is in that movie I place a check mark (this check mark will eventually become a hyperlink to something like Wikipedia or IMDb). What I would like to do is manually enter the new title. To do this, I am inserting a new row at row 9, just below the people row. Then from something like IMDb, copy and paste a list of the important people on another sheet (sheet 4, named Dummy). At this point I have been trying to write a macro to "read" the person on the Dummy sheet, jump to the Movie Info sheet, find the appropriate person and place a check mark under that name, and when finished insert a new blank line in row 9, preparing for a new entry. This macro would also have to realize that if the person isn't found that it would have to be added at the end of the "people row". At this point I have 163 movies. That's not the problem. The problem is the people list is at column TZ and to scroll manually to find the appropriate person is tedious to say the least.

Can anyone help? I appreciate your thoughts.

I need to paste data from one worksheet that is unfiltered (not hidden) onto a worksheet that is filtered. I need to paste onto visable cells only, ignoring the hidden rows. Currently, my data is being pasted onto both visible and hidden rows.

I know its possible to paste only visable data, ignoring hidden cells, but I need to do the reverse of this. Pasting non hidden data onto only visible cells. And I hope I am explaining this well.

Please do not suggest a vlookup because this would take entirely too long due to the nature of my data and this project. Also, I am not skilled enough to do code, so keep it simple...

hi guys...i posted regarding this file a few times...and is still coming back to haunt me!

i need some help here....especially now that the ppl at the office need the information to be drawn out differently.

ok. here's the scenario:

i have an excel file with 8 sheets

"Questionnaire" sheet is to be filled out by a rep and has some drop down lists to populate the "POtemp_NY" sheet.

ampaper, edmar, sterling, stoneglo, strauss and uneeda are all venders with lists of their products...with their prices.

"POtemp_NY" is the master sheet where all the information must show on

The problem is, i need to have the "POtemp_NY" sheet populate the description, units, and price when someone enters a value in the "Units" column on a vendors sheet. Also, i would need the "POtemp_NY" sheet to continue to list the products on the next lines if there are multiple products with values in their "Units" cell.

Any help would be GREAT!!!!

I have an application called BT Billing Analyst. This application has an option to open a report in Excel.

When I used Excel 2007 the report data opened in sheet 1 of an Excel workbook and some information on the report was put on sheet 2.

I recently upgraded to Excel 2013 and now when I open the report in Excel the report data is populated on sheet one but after that the first 25 lines get overwritten by the information that should go to sheet 2.

Is there any way I can fix this?

You may have to go to the BT Billing vendor to resolve this. Perhaps an updated version is available. 2007 is xml based like 2013 so I am surprised there is a conflict. But I don't think there is anything in Excel you can do to resolve.

Hi there

I got a virus/trojan of some sort today when an IT technician just had to poke his USB inside my netbook. The immediate effect I noticed was that Google Chrome started opening whatever link I clicked in a new tab, even though I did not press CTRL when clicking. Also, when I clicked the newly opened tab, it instantly closed. I noticed that pressing CTRL + Tab allowed me to swtich between tabs without them closing, so yay for me What was even weirder was that the virus/trojan not only affected Chrome, but also my desktop. I could no longer drag and drop to move files into a folder, and I can't move a single thing on my desktop (they'd return to their original place and not snap onto another grid/column/row).

Then I tried finding a solution, and came across two posts on Google support forums, describing the exact same problem as what I was facing (both were dated 2011):

I work next to a window that allows a lot of sun in, which is a good thing. Unfortunately when I have Excel open, it is often difficult for me to tell the difference between a worksheet with more than one tab selected, which gets awkward when I change a sheet and the changes go to other sheets which I hadn't intended.

I would like to change my excel program so that when I have selected multiple sheets, it is blatently obvious that they've been selected. Either a deeper shade or a shade in a different color.

This is not the same thing as simply changing a tab color, which I don't seem to have the power to do in the worksheets I work with.

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.

Whenever I print to the shared printer on my Windows 7 desktop, the print job will just sit in the print queue. If I stop and then start the print spooler, the job will print. It happens from an XP laptop. Print jobs sent from the local Windows 7 computer print just fine.
How can i solve this one ? :(

This issue with some particular laptop running windows Xp and windows 7 Home

A:Whenever I print to the shared printer he print job will just sit in the print queue

So, the Windows 7 Desktop has the printer physically attached to it and it's shared?
And the XP laptop is sharing the printer through the network? If I understand you correctly?
If so, on the XP Laptop, go to Start/Run and type devmgmt.msc and press enter. Are there any devices with yellow flags? Or Under Universal Serial Bus Controllers is there an Unknown Device? Or any listings for the printer? If so, right click it and Uninstall it. Now go to Start/Run and type appwiz.cpl and press enter. In the Add Remove Programs uninstall any drivers or software for the printer. Now,go to Printers and Faxes, and if the printer icons is there, Right click the shared printer icon and Delete it. And Restart the computer. Now when the computer comes back up, go to the printer manufacturers support/download drivers site and type in the model# for the printer and download the driver for the printer for XP and install it. Now, go to Start/Run and type the computer name of the Windows 7 machine (ex) \\ComputerName and press enter. A window should open up with the shared drives on the 7 computer, with the shared printer. Right click the shared printer and choose Connect. This will add the printer to Printers and Faxes again. Right click this printer/Properties and print a Test Page.

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 am unable to print pictures completely. I print them from Picasa on HP photosmart C4250. When I try to print, although the preview is correct, the printed result is not. Part of a picture will come out, or the image starts at the end of the paper and is therefore incomplete. Until now, everything worked properly.

I have 3 print queues that are retaining the printed jobs in the queue and every now and again the damn thing prints all the job again. I have checked that the keep printed jobs button is NOT checked/selected, but the queue acts ilke it is selected to keep printed jobs. I have 125 printer queues and only 3 act like this and they are set up identical to the others. I have reconfigured this twice on all 3 and they still act like they are set to keep printed jobs in the queue.

Anyone seen this and know of a solution, on the Microsoft site I am seeing posts but not a single reply about how to either run a job to clear them out a couple times a day or fix this so they act as configured. To NOT keep printed jobs in the queue.

Any help as always is much appreciated.

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.

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?


A:faded printed pictures

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


When you click print, go to Options > Printer Properties

Click on the "Page Setup" tab, then Untick the box that says "Borderless Printing"

Hi all,

Well not sure if this is the right area for this but not really sure what the problem is.

When I boot my PC during the bootup dos stage I hear my PC making noises, it still boots up Windows 7 ok but as soon as I open something I get continious R type accross my screen, If I hit the caps lock it changes from R to r.

Thought it was my keyboard having the R locked down so tried to fix it, no luck. Changed keyboards with my spare one no luck. Disconnect all keyboards no luck.

So where is this R coming from, its impossible to us my PC at the moment as soon as you click somewhere (word, exel, Google etc) an R/r appears.

Any ideas where to start?

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?

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 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.

Problem: Green Cast on Images being printed
Editor - Elements Version 7 & Windows default viewer
Printer R285
Colour Management:- every variation tried

My Neighbour has a Epsom R285 printer, his had it a few years.
I have recently changed his PC to a Windows 7 desktop and installed all the drivers. The Printer worked fine, but yesterday he was getting a green colour cast on all images
I checked the head alignment, nozzle set-up and cleaned the heads
Checked with windows default viewer, and printing from that application - same problem
Checked all the Colour Management, ICC, settings etc - tried without Management, sRGB, adobe 1998 etc, checked colour management on printer and elements

The image looks fine on the screen , I have emailed a sample image and on my setup it prints fine

The next step was to try the printer on my laptop
any other ideas - this is usually a colour management issue and i have fixed quite quickly in the past on other systems - so I suspect I'm missing something obvious now

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.
