Printing a spreadsheet from ClarisWorks

Here is the setup: Powerbook G3 with System 8.5.1, ClarisWorks 4.0v4 or 3.0. Any time I attempt to print a document containing spreadsheet data, I get a system error message (not a Claris error message) saying only "Resouce not found." The error pops up after Claris is done with it's printing stuff, ie the print progress box. I am printing to a Xerox 4520 workgroup printer on an ethernet network. I have tried printing with new copies of Claris, both versions, and a new Claris folder in the system folder, but to no avail. Also, only on this machine, ClarisWorks defaults to A4 paper size, not letter. Any idea on changing that?

Can you print a word processing document from ClarisWorks?  Can you print from other applications or even the Finder?

Can you print a word processing document from ClarisWorks?  Can you print from other applications or even the Finder?  If none of the printing works, was there a change made that caused it to stop working?

Did you load the correct printer description file for the printer. (chooser> select printer)

2. Are you using desktop printing?. If you do remove the desktop print extensions from the extension folder and try again.

3. Delete the printer pref file and reselect the printer.

I will try the suggestion by paulvaneykelen when that computer is back in my office Friday afternoon. To answer other people's questions, everything else prints fine, just any Claris document containing spreadsheet data, be it a spreadsheet document, a drawing document with a spreadsheet element, whatever. As long as there is a spreadsheet element present, it doesn't want to print. I'll try the suggestion and let you all know what happens.
