Thumbs up Answer: Print preview shows blank sheet

Don't worry, I can help you with that! There are a few things that could be causing this issue. Here are some steps you can try:
  1. Check your print settings: Make sure that you have selected the correct printer and that the settings are correct. Sometimes, the printer settings can be the cause of a blank page. To check your printer settings, go to File Print and make sure that the correct printer is selected. Then, click on the "Printer Properties" or "Printer Setup" button to check the settings.
  2. Check your page layout: Make sure that your page layout is correct and that your data is not outside the printable area. To check your page layout, go to the Page Layout tab and click on "Print Area" "Set Print Area". This will show you the printable area of your worksheet. Make sure that your data is within this area.
  3. Check your print preview settings: Sometimes, the print preview settings can be the cause of a blank page. To check your print preview settings, go to File Print Preview. In the Print Preview window, click on the "Page Setup" button. Make sure that the "Print Quality" is set to "High" and that the "Print Preview" settings are set to "As displayed on sheet".
  4. Check your printer driver: If none of the above steps work, it could be an issue with your printer driver. Try updating your printer driver to the latest version.

I hope these steps help you resolve the issue and you're able to print your work successfully.

Possibly you have a print area set on a blank cell or cells. To clear
(XL2003):

File, Print Area, Clear Print Area

OR to set a range to print:

Highlight the range you want printed:
File, Print Area, Set Print Area

XL 2007:
