Why do I get different prints for the same Excel file from different versions of Excel?

Anonymous February 14, 2014

I am using two systems with different versions of Excel.
I recently re-installed Excel on my laptop which is running the latest version of Excel.
I had created the file in the same version of Excel but before formatting my laptop.
I am trying to print the same file with the same printer but the prints that I am getting are different.
The margins are the same.

Anything I can do to make both print the same?

    In new office version are you just opening the file and printing? Have you tried "saving as" and amending the version to ensure it is what you think/want. I am saying this but still think it will be a printer driver issue but it's a simple thing to try first.

    Print to file (pdf) and then print the file. There's no guarantee that Excel will work the same between versions.

    The problem should be with print settings, not with the file. Check if both your Printer's and Excel's print settings are the same as before.

    What kind of difference is it? Also, what version of Windows & Excel are we talking about?
