No Default Printer Selected Error - Microsoft Works 8.5

Works 8.5 is installed on a system.  An HP OfficeJet 7210 (IIRC) is installed and works properly through Windows.

When printing from Works Spreadsheet, the error message "No default printer selected. Use the Windows Control Panel to specify your printer" comes up.

Any other application will print fine.

I tried one suggestion of manually deleting the Works folder and reinstalling, as well as uninstalling/reinstalling the printer, but nothing has worked yet.

Any suggestions? TIA!

What operating system?  What happens if you change your default printer to something else?  I have read of a few different problems printing from Works all involving HP printers.  Some suggest 1) change the default printer to see if it will print, 2) change the driver to Generic/Text

Windows XP.  I haven't tried changing the printer yet.

I'll give it a try tomorrow.  As for a printer to change it to, I'll try CutePDF writer to see if it creates a PDF and then I'll try to change the print driver.

Thanks!
