|"print area" not the problem. :(|
Print preview in both Word & Excel show (say for a 3 page doc) the last page (first) and then two blank pages. Convert it to a PDF and it previews and prints fine.
I'm about to uninstall Office 10 (having already tried removing and reinstalling office 10, the printer, restoring the system to several weeks ago, etc). I'll just try using Office 2007. :(
