I am trying to print an Excel 7 spread sheet that has borders and shading
along with data to an HP IIP Plus (also IIP + IIISi).  Some times on the
first printing it will print fine, but always on the second printing it
will only print the borders and shading in the top left corner of the page
(somewhat less than 1/4 of the page).  The data (text and numbers) always
prints ok.  Dell says that it is the WIN95 printer driver as they don't
have a problem w/ a HP4 driver.  HP says that it is a Microsoft written
Driver and will not help.  Dell won't help (even though they sold the OS
software & Excel).  Has any one run into this type of problem, and if so
what was the resolution? I did try to use a win3.1 driver but it screwed up the HP1200 and HPIIIsi drivers.

 Can you provide information on your computer and the printer driver?
I have ran into a similar problem on my novell network.
How I resolved it is go into the printer properties, and look for Device Options. Click on the tab, then look for printer memory tracking, I had to make sure that it was set exactly in the middle or it would screw up. Try different settings and see how it works.
