What you will see
The following may be observed when printing workbooks or multiple worksheets from Microsoft Excel:
- Multiple print jobs are generated or visible in the print queue.
- Printing to file (.prn) may require the entry of multiple file names.
- Microsoft Visual Basic Macros may fail to print correctly because of multiple names for each of the output files.
- Network printing in heavy-print traffic areas may result a non-sequential printing order of the output file.
- Lexmark Print Release* displays the print queue as multiple print jobs and when these jobs print, they do not print in the correct order.
* Any MFP equipped with the Print Release solution software.

Different print quality settings per worksheet will cause the creation of separate print files because Microsoft Excel is forced to create a new print job for every change in print quality.
NOTE: This behavior was not experienced with older versions of Microsoft Excel.
What to do
Make sure that all of the worksheets have the same print quality settings.
You can attempt to check each worksheet's Print quality setting via Page Setup to verify equivalent values. If this does not work as expected, click here to reference Microsoft's KnowledgeBase article regarding this topic.
