Colored Text Won't Print


New Member

My co-workers and I print to a Xerox WorkCentre 7655 xerox/printer. We use Excel 2007.

For three of us, when we format our text to a color the text will not print in color but prints only in black. My other two co-workers CAN print their text in color.

When we print we are setting up our printer properties to print in color, spreadsheet is set up with "print in black and white" turned off, etc.

One other point, we have another color printer in the office which we CAN print text in color on. So the problem appears to be the "connection" between us three users and the Xerox WorkCentre.

Any thoughts as to where to look for the fix? Is it something inside Excel or is it a problem with the operating system or is it a problem on the Xerox end?

I really don't think this is an Excel issue, it's far more likely to be something to do with your printer(s) and their settings.:)

If that is the case I'm afraid I can't really offer much help - I just installed a new cartridge in my printer and it keeps telling me it doesn't exist.

Never had much luck with printers.:rolleyes:
