I initially posted under the Excel forum however it is looking like this may be more of a printer issue.  I really don't have the option of replacing this printer so I'm asking for some suggestions.  Please post to this article located here.

Excel and Word handle collation differently, usually because Excel is effectively printing a single page split up horizontally and vertically, whereas Word is printing a linear sequence of pages.

The printer driver collate will always be overridden by the word collate setting, whereas excel seems not to, this is usually because of the layout option settings. (across and down or down and across).

Anyway, collate should be set in the print driver OR the application, not both.

Remember that the screen that you see when you click "print" is not the print driver settings, but the application settings page.
The print driver settings are what you see when you hit the "properties" button.
If you need to change the print driver settings permanently, you can do so by changing them in the printers folder.
