Excel printing more pages than selected

By highlander718 ·
I tried to play around with page breaks, set printer area, print selection but it looks like whatever I'm doing, in the printer window I will see "printing page 200 out of 15" or "30 out of 3" and so on.. If i'm printing just a few pages (5-6), evenif the page count goes up the job finish OK, but after the 7th or so pages when the counter is passing 200 or so the job just stops and not responding. Where the heck are those pages come from ?
Never happened to me and I think I'm pretty handy with Excel. I reinstalled the printer.

From the same PC, I have no problems printing to a network printer, I downloaded the latest printer driver from HP and reinstalled the printer again.

I don't think it is a problem with your printer, is this happening on a lot of documents or just one? If it is happening on more than one, is it a file you copied to create other pages? I'm thinking it may be the same problem that a couple of people had in our office. They had a character somewhere way down in the spreadsheet that they didn't know about and it just started printing page after page of blank pages. You might try print preview first and see what it is showing (how many pages etc..) You should also look at page setup and click on the sheet tab to see what shows up in print area.

I did all that. It's not even printing white pages, if I try to print let's say 4 pages, I can see in the Printer status window that it goes : "printing pages 1 of 4, 4 of 4, 8 of 4 and so on. When it printed the 4 pages, the job dissapear and everything is OK But if I want to print 15 pages the count goes up to 200 and over and the printing stops.
print preview shows 4 pages, I was trying to only print selection, to set printer area... there is no extra character and yes it does the same thing with any Excel file, but only if I try to print on the local printer.
