Text within a cell in an excel spreadsheet has been changed to 25% grayed out.

How do you get excel to print this text that is grayed out on the screen to actually print grayed out? I have printed a word document from the same computer to the same printer that I am attempting to print the excel document from & to and grayed out text in the word document actually prints grayed out.

:confused: :oops:

Please :rolleyes:

Change the font colour to gay-25%. this will print a faded gray colour.

I have already changed the color to gray 25%. I did that before printing.

I use grayed out cells as well, and it prints OK. Perhaps it might be a setting in the file, have you tried creating a new workbook, then changing the font to see if it prints?

Sorry, I don't know where to go with this one.
