Windows 8 problem printing MS Works Suite 9 spreadsheets

October 25, 2013 at 15:43:15
Specs: Windows 8
I just installed MS Works Suite 9 in my Dell laptop and produced a spreadsheet which will not print. I get the following error message:
"Cannot print the document. Close other applications and check that you have specified the correct printer port and then try again"
It will print word processor files without any issue. I am using Windows 8. Any suggestions?

Did you do as the error message instructed?

MS Works is outdated & has been discontinued. Consider moving on to MS Office or one of the compatible freebies - OpenOffice, King Office, LibreOffice.

I realize the program is old & outdated. Unfortunately, so am I. I've used MS Works for years and really would rather not have to relearn a new application, plus I have numerous spreadsheets and Works word processing files that I currently work with.

If there's a conflict with another app, it must be something that opens at startup because I have shutdown and re-started the computer and the problem is still there.

What I don't understand is that if there is a conflict, why am I able to print my Works word processor files but not the Works spreadsheet files.

Maybe I'll try to remove and re-install the app.
