Excel Margin


J

Jerry

I am totally frustrated with Excel 2003 Professional. I’ve been working on
the horizontal margins far too long. If I make a worksheet and print it
Portrait, no matter where I set the Margins
(.5; .75; .6 etc.) it prints with perfectly equal margins on both sides.
This is a good thing.
When I set up a worksheet using Landscape it’s never equal. I printed a
document and had both horizontal margins set for .75 and got 5/8†on the left
and 13/16†on the right. When I set them both for .5 I get 7/16†on the left
and 9/16†on the left. Am I doing something wrong?
I’ve reinstalled Microsoft Office 2003 and my printing software so I doubt
if it’s the printing software.
Please help!

Hi Jerry

Just a guess. At the bottom of the Margins set up tab you can check
two boxes to center vertically and horizontally. Try to check them
after you have selected Landscape, and see if this helps.

It sounds to me that your printer is not feeding paper properly in Landscape
mode. Your results are consistent with the printer feeding mechanism being
off 1/16".

Does this happen on the first sheet only, or on many sheets in a row?
What happens if you print Landscape in Word -- does the same problem
manifest itself?

I was just preparing a Word Doc when I got notice of your suggestion. Word
does print the same way so apparently the problem is in the printer?
