All of a sudden I am unable to print single pages of spreadsheets in Works 7.0. If I use "control P" the program becomes unresponsive and I have to close it. Clicking the "print" icon causes the entire spreadsheet to print with no problem. The problem is only if I try to print one page at a time. Is there a fix for this? Or is my computer just getting too old? Thanks.

I have Works 8.5, and everything is working fine for me.

How about File > Print? It is the same as Ctrl+P (should be)...

You should get a dialogue box with a section called Print Range,
with Pages from __ to __.. Just use that and chose your pages.

doe this happen if you create a new document or does it happen with all documents?

Have you tried to update your printer driver?

Well, that's interesting.
I have an HP T45 printer. I went to HP where it ran a check and said I am using the latest driver and a check of the settings shows no problems.

I almost never start a new spreadsheet from scratch. I normally just update a monthly two-page assignment calendar and that's about all I use Works for. I've been updating that same spreadsheet for several years now so I guess something got corrupted in the file.

I created a new two-page spreadsheet and was able to print one page at a time. So I guess my solution is to start over and re-create the spreadsheet, which is kind of a nuisance. I'll do that unless you know of a fix.

Thanks for your help.
