I'm having a problem.  I've created a two page worksheet - both pages on the same tab - in Excel 2016.  It doesn't mater if I stack the pages vertically or put them side by side horizontal , it doesn't matter if I have the printer flip the page on the long side or the short side, the results are the same.  First side looks great, but when you turn the page over, side 2 is upside down.  Any ideas?  I'm at a loss.

 

I'm using Excel 2016 Pro Plus on a Windows 10 system, printing on a Brother MFC-L885OCDW.

@Amita4ever This seems more like a printer issue than an Excel issue. Make sure the printer driver is up to to date and check that there are no printer settings overriding what you set in Excel.

Thanks. I will look into that. I was starting to think that might be the case, but was hoping I was overlooking something that would be easy to fix in Excel. I'm less familiar with the printer. Time to explore, I guess
