I have encountered an odd problem while printing long spreadsheets on legal size paper. This only happens on legal sized paper, on letter, A3, etc. I do not see a problem. Additionally it only happens on multi-paged printouts. (In other words, page 1 prints fine, but all subsequent pages have the problem.
Here is a description of the problem…
I have a long spreadsheet, hundreds of rows with a number of columns (perhaps 20 columns). Some of the cells contain numbers (1 to 4 digits in length, often separated by a decimal point), but most are blank.
When I print the spreadsheet, the first page prints correctly, however each page after the first page has the problem. The problem appears to be the numbers in the cells “bleed” or span across/into the cells directly to the right of it.
This condition is present throughout the remainder of the spreadsheet in all cells. This only happens with legal paper. I have tried using different computers and different printers. The problem presents itself consistently. Again, page 1 prints properly.
Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?
I suspect printer drivers, but it happens with different printers (all HP laser printers)
