I work hard to format my worksheet for printing and when I print it out my output shows columns that are too narrow "###########" appearing.  Why is there a difference between my print preview/screen display  and my actual printed output?

Hi

Excel is not able to show it accurately in the print preview (due to proportional fonts).

you have to expand the column by dragging or double clicking top right side of column.

It can happen sometimes especially when the printer driver is not the exact match for the printer, or an older driver or when the printer renders fonts differently.
