Chart doesn't print w/worksheet but will print by itself

Hi
I'm using excel 2003, I have a worksheet with a bar chart located within the
worksheet. If I print the entire worksheet the chart doesn't print
correctly, it will only print a small portion of the text boxes that I put on
it. If I click on the chart itself and print it's fine. Here's what I've
tried so far:
- selected the chart area and then chose "move to front"
- made sure the print area include the chart
- moved the chart to the bottom, reselected print area (this worked but only
if I kept the chart a very small size)
- checked to make sure the page setup was the same in both the worksheet and
the chart
Any help would be much appreciated!

Thanks much,
Vera

Hi,

I can't duplicate the problem unless the text boxes are "sent to back" or if
their property is set to so Print object is unchecked. This last one is
controlled by selecting a checkbox's border and choosing Format, AutoShape,
Properties, uncheck Print object.

I have heard of similar type problems being relate to printers/printer
drivers.

I think I may have mis-worded this a bit. The problem is that the entire
chart doesn't print unless I have it selected. If I click on a cell in the
worksheet the chart will not show up in print preview (or on paper) unless I
shrink it to about 1/10th of it's size. The only part that does show up in
preview is a very small portion of two of the many text boxes that's I've
laid on top of the chart. Quite strange...
