    I have been having increasing trouble with Excel.

    1) The first problem is that, when I click the "open" icon to open a file, only some of my files show up in the window. If I go up a step to "Libraries" - "Documents" - "My (whatever) files", all of the files are there.

    2) I have inserted graphs in some sheets, and when I try to print the sheet with the graphs, only about 1/2 of the information on the graph prints. The whole thing shows up in the Print Preview, but it won't print that way. I've checked this on two different printers, so I don't think it's a printer problem.

    It seems to have started a couple of days ago, and I see that Windows automatically installed an update on Monday. Could this have caused the problem? IF so, what can I do about it?

    Thank you!

    Hi, welcome to the forum
    1. You must specify the file location you want Excel to find or save your files too by default (under options)
    2. Could be a printer problem, in general print preview is what you see is what you get in your case what you expect to get but don't.
    Check the files page setup and set it up there. The graphs are objects that 'stand loose' from the sheet and 'float around' so it could be that you see them in the print preview but fall-off on printing

    As far as I know it has nothing to do with updates and so, but you never knwo what Microsfot come up with next :)

    Thanks for replying! Interestingly, I see that another member (iem10) posted right above me is having the same problem with their graphs. They stated it more clearly; the graph is there, but the top half of the data on the y axis is missing and so is the graph header. The bottom half of the data on the y-axis is there. Mine are 3-d line charts, by the way.

    I've tried printing on two different printers and they both print the same way. I also saved a sheet as a pdf file and it was missing the top half of the the y-axis data. But the data still shows up in Print Preview!

    As far as saving the files, yes, I do specify where I want them to be saved. And I know they are being saved there, because I can search for them and find them. The problem is that, when I click the "open file" icon (the easy way to open up a file) in the place where I saved the file, some of the files I just saved there show up and some of them don't.

    The graph issue is really annoying. I need those graphs for presentations and I can't get them to print out.

    My graph problem was solved by uninstalling a recent Excel update (12/15).
