Excel 2003 ignores tray settings printer

Hi everybody,

Last week I installed a new pc with Office 2003 (no, they didn't want 2007) :)

Everything works fine except printing from Excel.
We installed a couple of printers with different tray settings as default. All applications including Word and Outlook pickup the right traysettings, only Excel just ignores them. The're all on "Auto Select"
So everytime they have to set the correct tray.

Using a different printer driver isn't solving the problem.

Anyone has a suggestion?

I believe EXCEL saves the printer settings with the file.
Do a 'file', 'page setup' and set the print tray.
Save the file if it works.
