Hello,
We have an HP Laserjet 2420. We have letter in tray 3 and legal in tray 2. What is the proper way of having an Excel document that is legal, print to tray 2 and also fill the page. We tried various different ways but can't seem to figure this out. Thanks in advance...

You have set up the Excel as legal using Page Setup, I assume? And you have also set the print area?
If so, then when you send it to print, the printer should look for legal automatically.
If it doesn't, I suspect that your printer is not configured correctly, and is not "aware" that one tray is legal and one is letter.
However, you can, once you click on print, select the printer you want (if you have more than one) and then go to Properties - this is actually dependent on the printer driver, not Excel. You should then get a pop-up showing items like Paper, Print Quality, etc. (I don't have an HP Laserjet, but these items are essentially universal.) Usually on one of the tabs there will be either a graphic of your printer that you can click on to select the tray, or a drop-down selection to select the tray you want to use.

Once you try this, then let me know what you mean about "also fill the page."
