The first print out, prints the first item on the list while the next print out prints a blank data before it prints the second item from the list. What should I do?

What version of Excel are you using?
The problem can't be reproduced in my case. Sorry for the inconvenience.
- To post as a guest, your comment is unpublished.· 3 months agoSorry I totally forgot about this. I'm using Excel 2013.
So it wasn't actually a blank data.
I have this dynamic drop down list in cell R17 which also populates other cells in the worksheet using VLOOKUP Function. What happens during print out is that the odd-positioned items on the list appears on the cell while the even-positioned items seemed not to show up that's why I thought it's printing blank pages.

I was wondering if you had a way to do VBA to print Page 1 based on one drop-down selection and print Page 1 and 2 based on another drop-down selection? Thanks for any help you can provide.
