Current printer is unavailable.

By creed ·
Can anyone help with this Excel97 Error mesg.Current printer is unavailable. Select another printer.
This is a win98 Pc, a new PC, The old PC had the same error, so it's not a hardware problem.
If you open a file in excel97 you can print it, if you make a change in the file then you get the error mesg.
It gives the error mesg, ask if you want to pick a different printer. But then says the same error mesg. for that printer. now if you exit out of execl97 open the same file(w/o rebooting) itwill let you print.

thanks
Clint

Look at: Q181200 - XL97: Printer Unavailable Error on Print or Page Setup in the MircroSoft Knowledge Base Search. Verify that there is a printer driver, and that it is the correct one. (Look at the article, it leads you to other possiblities.

Good luck.

I'd say that if there are no other applications experiencing the same problem, I'd blame Excel.

Try reinstalling it (back up your .doc files first) and see how that goes.

Good luck.

I think it might be a novell issue, if you copy a file to the local hard drive it works.....but if it's on the network, and you make a change then it has the print issue.

Ok if you copy the file to her local drive it prints fine. So some reason the eccel's temp file is not being created on the server properly. She has the same rights as everyone else, I even upgrade her rights temp. to test it. same problem......so she save on her pc and prints.....then copies it back to the server..
