Somehow I have an error in all my excel files where they will not print properly.  The workbook I am attaching has one file and was printing correctly this morning but now it wants to print to 256 pages.  One page for 2 cells.  Clearing the print area does not work.  I have opened other files and having the same issue.  Please help

Clearing the print area does not work.  

Highlight all the rows and clear all page breaks. See if that helps.

Try selecting the sheet, make a new sheet in a new Workbook entirely, copy the contents to the new book and save it. Then check the new book.

Tried that already.  This is happening to all my spreadsheets.  I opened others and the printing area is wrong so I went to page break and when I tried to correct and I have the same issue.  All of my spreadsheets seem to be affected.  I am going to try a repair for Excel

That is new information, so consider the following:

1. Uninstall the printer driver, restart and reinstall it. Test.

2. Uninstall Office, restart, and reinstall office. Test.

If no, make a new, test Windows User Profile (Account). Log into the new Account and test Excel in the new Windows Account.
