Russ, I appreciate your desire to "defend" Hal, but I find your comments
unnecessary and certainly not productive. My response to Hal was not
intended to be "inconsiderate". I am looking to fix the problem not
run away from it as Hal suggested in his post ("don't use it"). You
now ask me to "specifiy which Fax Wizard" I am referring to. My
original post was apparently clear enough that Hal understood I was
talking about WIN XP and MS OFFICE 2003. Now you ask me to "list the
steps to repro the problem". It is quite simple - IF you understand how
to fax Excel sheets via the Fax Wizard. When I select several sheets
from one Excel Workbook and send them to the Fax driver (via the Print
Screen on the File Menu), the Fax Wizard does not process it as one
job. Additional Fax Wizards are generated for each sheet. As a
result, rather than send the entire fax job via one phone call, it
requires separate phone calls to the same number. Now if ANYONE has
experienced this problem and has a _VIABLE_ solution please post it or
send to me privately. I have no interest in reading posts that suggest
I "not use it". Russ, I trust this post will not be misconstrued as
"inconsiderate" and I hope no further valuable space will be taken up
in defense of Hal or anyone else. :)

The only valuable space I will consume is a plea for clarity. Hal may or may
not have understood to which Fax Wizard you were referring. He had to guess,
and he took his best stab at an answer.
His answer was spot on if you are referring to the Office Fax Wizard. It is
an outdated relic which should not be used. If instead you are referring to
the Windows XP Fax Wizard, then we would need some troubleshooting
information to help us understand what changed between the time it worked as
you expected and the time that it did not. If you do not know which wizard
you are using, then the steps you are using would allow us to identify that.
That is why I asked for the steps to repro.

What you posted is clear to only one person. You. We can't help if you
expect us to read your mind. We aren't there watching you.
