Excel 2007 Printing Misspelled Text

Posted on 2011-05-12

I have an Excel 2007 spreadsheet that prints misspelled words.

As an example, the spreadsheet will show the word 'difference' on the screen, but print the misspelled word 'dierence'. It will literally just remove the f's. This is just one example of other similar issues.

We've uninstalled the and reinstalled the printer and it's drivers. We also tried PCL5 Universal from PCL 6. The printer is an LJ P4014n.

The 2 pc's in question are XP x32, the server that gives them their drivers is 2008 x64.

My next thought was to copy the data to a new spreadheet.

Any thought on this?

    What does print preview reveal?

    Can you try a different printer? Maybe try printing to a PDF file?

    Nevermind on this. Sorry guys.

    I just got word that the switch to Universal PCL 5 did work.
