    in print preview you should see some dotted lines - I would goto the column on the right with the last data entry and then select the next few columns and delete those columns - see if that resolves the issue

    what version of excel

    also look at the print area used ?
    and set that area to the pages you want printed

    I am using MS EXCEL 2007 Home Office version; deleting the excess columns and rows after the sheets with data had no effect.....however, I did go to Page Layout in the EXCEL document and chose the "Print Area" button from the task bar and then highlighted the 2 pages with data...then went to Print Preview and checked it..voila!! Then I was able to convert it into a PDF file and send it on to 3rd parties....Solved my problem....thank you very much. MG (y)(y):)
