I converted one of my users to Office 2010 from 2003.  She opens a work book that is 10 pages, and you can see all of the data.  When she tried to print it only shows 1 page of data and the second page is blank minus the header and footer.  Any ideas as to why it would not let her print the whole document.  I did notice if I copy all cells onto sheet 2 all the data will print.

Did you check the Print Area setting? On View tab click on the Page Break Preview to check if all of your data is inside the defined Print Area.

The Print Area button is on the Page Layout tab and you need to select the range of data that you want to print and then click on the Set Print Area.

I just went and checked and it was on Page Break Preview, shows as 10 Pages.  Click on Print it shows only 2 pages.  Click back to the Home tab and the whole workbook shows only 2 pages now.  Unless I close and reopen it.

Do you have only problems with this file? If so, can you try and check on another computer this file to see if the same happens there?

Also, this might be a problem with your default printer. Can you change to another printer and make a print preview to see if it's OK?

I think I have got it.  I had to go to the Page Layou tab and Clear Print Area.  Thank you for the ideas to get me in the right direction
