    Print Preview View (XP professional)

    I am working on a new computer and I have found that when using Print Preview the view is in black and white.
    I prefer a color preview which is the setting on my other computers. In Word on the new machine it is in color.
    Can not seem to find the setting to change it.
    Any suggestions?

    Print preview in Excel depends on the printer. Have you installed a default printer on the new PC, and if so, is it a color printer?

    The default printer is a black only laser printer. <img src=/S/bash.gif border=0 alt=bash width=35 height=39>
    Maybe that is why it does not work.

    Why would the Print Preview be in color in a Word document?

    Each Office application has its own development team. Apparently the Word developers had different ideas about this than the Excel developers...

    Thank you Hans.
    I am constantly amazed by the vast knowledge I still have to learn.
