We previously reported that the black and white printing function in Excel v.X became limited after the software's first service release. We've since received two straightforward workarounds. Larry MacDonald suggests creating a macro that would:

- Close (without saving)
MacFixit reader Yudit says "I keep the latest version of Office v.X on my main computer, and I have the original version on my external FireWire HD, which is always on. When I need to print a file affected by the bug, I simply open it in the original version of the application in question."
