Hello - thanks for keeping up with this thread and posting again. I saw your earlier post, too. On the "Advanced" tab of the Page Setup-Options for my HP Photosmart B209, I don't have the option you refer to. I have just:
- Enable maximum dpi
- Enable HP Realife Technologies
- Ink Volume
- Poster Printing
- Layout Options (Front to Back or Back to Front)
I have gone over the remainder of the options with a fine-toothed comb, thinking that your printer and mine may have slight option variations. Unfortunately, the difference between yours and mine is that I don't have that Margin setting you refer to!
However, using the A4 paper size adjustment has helped a lot in Excel. I'm left to struggle with Publisher. For the time being, I am successfully using PowerPoint to make the printouts that I used to do in Publisher. It just takes a little more fanagling.
Thanks again! Bw

I also can not print landscape on my HP 6500 which is wireless. It doesn't seem to work for any document uncluding web pages. I have not ried it with a cable connection.
Can't believe HP can't solve this major issue.

The following steps seem to have solved the problem for me. I have now printed a few different spreadsheets in Landscape successfully with my wireless connection now with the following settings. Hope it works for you if you find this and need a solution.
Click on Start>>Control Panel>>Printers. Then Right Click on the printer icon>>Click on Properties>>Click on Advanced tab>>Select Print directly to printer. Click on Apply>>OK

Thanks. Your fix also works on my HP Photosmart C5550 printer which I normally use in wireless mode. It's great to be able to print my Excel (2007 Student) spreadsheets in landscape mode again.
