When I go to change the view to landscape, it will not change. The option remains highlighted, however it never changes the view!?!?!? We tried reinstalling excel on the machine and that did not work, this is really starting to piss me off, there is no error messages at all, it just does not change the view... any ideas would be greatly appreciated...

I came accross something similar the other day. I could set to landscape with no error message but it would revert to Portrait. It turned out to be a problem with the printer/printer driver. Basically the setup would not let you print landscape. Odd as it had previously but after a quick reinstall it worked fine. It was a network printer so I guess someone fried the settings.

Actually, it cant be the network printer because when I go to change the view on this particular machine it just doesnt do it in the program, for instance, i can print in landscape on my machine fine. However, on her machine it just will not change the view in excel to landscape even though the little box is checked and everything... make sense?
