|Reply to all: You are terrific. I am overwhelmed with your concern and support. I am definitely not a tecky, but I appreciated all that I have gained from reading your responses, and for seeing your absolute concern that I get a correct answer.|
In response to Phil22, Your suggestion was to use 36ppi as 1/2", and that was almost perfect. Thank you.
To Xps86, I realized that the pixels and the monitor relationships could be different; hence the problem, but I was relying on the printout for the result.
To mikelinus, Yes, excel can be set to .5 inches, I finally found the solution
Go to the VIEW tab
under the PAGE LAYOUT tab, under the WORKSHOP VIEWS, I clicked onto PAGE LAYOUT.
In that view, the measurements automatically show up in inches.
This is the solution that DerbyDad03 gave in response #4, but I didn't follow it accurately. This is the BEST SOLUTION. It gave me exactly what I wanted and needed.
I was relying on the printout and measuring for accuracy, thank you.
