Solved Open Office Spreadsheet Printing Problems

June 14, 2017 at 10:02:25
Specs: Windows 10
Cell contents are not printing. The page only prints the borders.
Page preview displays the entire sheet correctly, but when printed, only the borders show.
I have checked and defined the print range, but this has not solved the problem.
The only thing I can think of is that my cell background is set at "no fill", but the font color is black, and as I noted above, everything shows correctly on the page preview.

Have you tried the obvious and restarted your computer? This often fixes unexplainable problems. Certainly worth a try.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

I tried to find an answer in all of your suggested sites, but none of them addressed my specific problem. I should add that I have printed out this spreadsheet many times before, with no problems. Might there have been an update to Windows 10 that I missed, or that changed my configurations somehow?

You are probably better off trying the openoffice forum.

Well, FINGERS, I guess I'm a little bit crazy hahaha!
I followed your recommendation and restarted my computer, which triggered some updates.
Lo and behold, my spreadsheet printed exactly as it should have!
Thank you for this simple solution to my problem!
One thing, though - You used the term "unexplainable problems", which is precisely what my printing issue was. I would hope that Windows, or whomever is responsible for this "glitch", would follow up on the problem.
Users should never have to deal with "unexplainable problems". The inconvenience and extreme frustration in trying to resolve this issue did not endear me to the Windows program.

JOHNW -
Your response "You are probably better off trying the openoffice forum.", was not helpful, and frankly, felt like a brushoff.
I do appreciate that you made the effort to respond.

Gia: JohnW probably has some experience with Open office like most of us but probably has not come across this one which was obviously unusual. His suggestion was to go to the source where there will be many who are very experienced with it and may have come across this before. He was not brushing you off but directing you the the best source of information on the program.
