    Blank document when faxing with Windows Fax in Vista (32)

    Hello

    I'm using Visa (32) and I fax out invoices, by printing using the Windows Fax driver. The invoices are created in Excel, and when I fax, only the cover page comes out, and the second document (which would be the attachment) is blank. Even before sending the fax, the preview pane only shows the cover page, and whatever document I'm faxing (from Excel) as blank.

    I've tried this from MS Word & Adobe Acrobat, and it works just fine. I've been reading around, and there's some suggestions about changing Tif file associations or something. Can somebody tell me how to do that?

    I'm really reliant on faxing invoices from Excel. It worked fine in XP, just not in Vista.

    Thank You

    We actually due the wages from one of our businesses in Excel and fax them off to a head office - we just use an el cheapo 'phone tools' program that I think was buried in Office somewhere, then Print> choose the fax/phone program to print to and Print 'selection'.

    Alternately, easiest is probably just to print 'Selection' or whatever is most appropriate for you, print the thing out and cram it in a good old fashioned fax machine!

    Cheers!

    There is in Vista Fax. It supports sending faxes as attachments. Try that method and see what happens.

    As regarding Tiff file associations, something on this site may help you, hopefully.
