    Set excel_app = New Excel.Application
    Set excel_wb = excel_app.Workbooks.Open(fileloc, 0)
    DoEvents
    For i = 1 To excel_wb.Worksheets.Count
        Set excel_ws = excel_wb.Worksheets(i)
        excel_ws.PrintOut
    Next i
    PrintDetector
    Set excel_ws = Nothing
    excel_wb.Close
    Set excel_wb = Nothing
    excel_app.Quit
    Set excel_app = Nothing
    Exit Sub
xlserrorhandler:
    errorflag = 1

just before you print out, add code to unhide hidden columns. - rael

Worksheets("Sheet1").Columns("A").Hidden = False

"A" would be the whole column A that it would be revealing so that you can print it out. I would just extend this to stretch a large range so that it would reveal any possible column that would be there, like this:

For i = 1 To excel_wb.Worksheets.Count
        Set excel_ws = excel_wb.Worksheets(i)
        excel_ws.Range("A:ZZ").Hidden = False
        excel_ws.PrintOut
Next i

Hope this helps

as far as i know it reaches a maximum of IV and i have modified the your code, instead of using Ranges i use columns and rows here so that it would read what are active not assuming the maximum range this the code:
Sub excelprocess()
    Dim i As Integer
    'On Error GoTo xlserrorhandler
    Set excel_app = New Excel.Application
    Set excel_wb = excel_app.Workbooks.Open(fileloc, 0)
    'excel_app.Workbooks.Open(fileloc, 0)
    DoEvents
    For i = 1 To excel_wb.Worksheets.Count
        Set excel_ws = excel_wb.Worksheets(i)
        excel_ws.Visible = True
        excel_ws.Columns.Hidden = False
        excel_ws.Rows.Hidden = False
        excel_ws.PrintOut
        DoEvents
    Next i
    PrintDetector
    Set excel_ws = Nothing
    excel_wb.Close False
    Set excel_wb = Nothing
    excel_app.Quit
    Set excel_app = Nothing
    Exit Sub
xlserrorhandler:
    errorflag = 1
    excel_app.ActiveWorkbook.Close False
    excel_app.Quit
    Set excel_app = Nothing
End Sub
