Hi I am using following code on a command button for print preview and print command (in Excel 2003). That is working perfectly in excel 2003. But this is not working in excel 2007.
Code:
'command button to print site survey 
Private Sub cmdPrintSiteSurvey_Click()
On Error GoTo ErrorLine
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
Dim SiteSurveyEnegy As VbMsgBoxResult
' message box to prompt print out
SiteSurveyEnegy = MsgBox("Do you want to take print out of Site Survey Energy Sheet", vbYesNo + vbQuestion, "Print Out")

If SiteSurveyEnegy = vbYes Then

    With Worksheets("3.0 Site Survey Energy Print")
        .Visible = True
        .PageSetup.PrintArea = "$A$1:$J$38"
        .PrintPreview
        .Visible = False
    End With
    
End If
Application.ScreenUpdating = True
Exit Sub
ErrorLine:
MsgBox ("Error Number:" & Err.Number & ". " & Err.Description & ". Source:" & Err.Source)
ActiveWorkbook.Close
End Sub

Copy formula down without changing references
If you have =SUM(F2:F49) in F50; type Alt+' in F51 to copy =SUM(F2:F49) to F51, leaving the formula in edit mode. Change SUM to COUNT.

in excel 2003 that is working perfectly. But in excel 2007 The print preview is there but there is no option for print. I can not use anything other than closing excel. Everything seems read only.
