When printing from IE, the print includes all the script data.

This does not occur when priting in MS Word or other applications, only in IE.

Is there someway to turn off script priting? I am running XP.

Hi and welcome to Geeks to Go,

What do you mean script data? Can you supply a jpg of your issue?

Investgating this further, what I called script is actually the HTML code printing, not the web information as displayed.

When I preview the web print, it does show the code, not simply the web information. My use is for banking and tax reports, so it is a problem I would like to get corrected.

Any help would be appreciated.

Hello again,

I am sorry but I am still confused. Are you saying that what you normally see on a page is HTML data and it is not printing. Can you give me an example of what you are printing out?

For instance when your printing do you normally see things like <b> <img src=http://www.name.com> on the page and you can no longer see these things when you print?

Keep in mind also...if your trying to print from a secure site such as a BANK ACCOUNT or such the page might get jumbled due to the security. You can always try calling the 1-800 number on the back of your debt/Credit card to get more information on online banking including problems or errors that might occur.

Let me know if this helps. :whistling:

No, what I am seeing on the page is normal text in a report format.

When I print (and look at preview) I see the <!doctype HTML PUBLIC "-//w3c//dtd html 4.01 transitional ...

This is what printed from this view I am currently entering.

Hello again,

Is this page your viewing just a normal page or are you viewing it using pdf reader or something like that?

Does the page use any special programs that you need to log in under?

Have you tried printing other pages? Do they come out just like this one?

Just a normal page, no special login. All IE pages are being printed this way.

Alright...lets try something shall we.

Please go into IE like you normally would. Click TOOLS at the top of the browser. Click Internet Options down at the bottom. Click the TAB that says ADVANCED. You should see a button somewhere that says RESTORE ADVANCED SETTINGS.

Please click this and then click okay. This should reset the browser back to the default setting which might have been tampered with.

Let me know what happens.

If for some reason this does not change. I need you to try to visit this page in a different browser. Pleas download Firefox at http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/. Firefox works in much of the same way as IE. Just open it like you would normally open IE and goto your page. Nothing should change but try printing from Firefox.

let me know what happens after this... :whistling:

I reset the IE controls as you listed and that did not make any difference.

I downloaded the Firefox and checked the website and it is fine, how I wnat it to be.

Should I remove the IE and reinstall to see if this corrects?

or I can simply use Firefox instead.

Thank you for the advice.

Personally I would love to tell you your never going to need IE. But I would keep it installed just in case. When you get the urge to reinstall it go ahead. If the problem persist...let me know...I'll try to correct it but Firefox is really a more secure browser and it has Addons.

Goto Google and type Firefox addons. It will bring you to a page...they solve almost every problem known to man...including those web pages that REQUIRE IE. So its a win-win for you. I would stick with Firefox though.

IE TAB for FIREFOX. What it does is lets you run IE in the Firefox browser as a tab.

Glad I could help! :whistling:

The page is gonna look ok in FF, but I think pyron81 wanted to know if printing from FF using it's Print Icon prints the HTML code or not. You can select Print Preview in FF from the File menu. Do you still see the HTML code before you print? Do you always use Print Preview before printing? Try selecting Print without using Preview. There may be preferences to preview page to be set so it doesn't view/print web page in source view. Just a guess as I haven't checked. You can also try highlighting just some of the text on the web page and try Print Preview in IE to see if you still get source code.

I have been referring to the print preview because I didn't want to print all the pages I am viewing. A simple 1 page preview was 4-5 pages depending on the code attached.

The specific page was 3 page report that became 12 pages. I haven't encountered any situation where my print preview has varied from the actual print when requested.

I did not print the page from Firefox, just viewed it. I will try this later.
