I would suggest to re-install the printer drivers and then check.

You can download the Printer drivers from below links

I switched to the pcl6 driver and i found that only excel is having the issue.


All other applications work just fine.

Check the pcl printing defaults and make sure duplex isn't disabled.

To apply the duplex option to all worksheets in your workbook, follow these steps:
1.     Open your workbook.
2.     Click the Microsoft Office Button, point to Print, click Print, and then click Properties.
3.     On the Layout tab, select the one of the duplex options, and then click OK.
4.     Click OK in the Print dialog box.
5.     Repeat these steps for every sheet in the workbook.
When you print your workbook, all worksheets are printed with the duplex option.
Note: If Duplex options are not available then check if the printer supports duplex printing. If your printer supports duplex printing, and still you do not have the option available; try installing updated drivers for your printer.
