In Internet Explorer version 5.5, the Print Preview window may only display one full page. The second page may only display a footer, and no additional pages are available in Print Preview or when using the Print command.


These symptoms can occur if all of the following statements within a scenario are true:

Scenario 1

  • The Web page contains two or more tables.
  • The total length of the content in tables adds up to be more than one page of data.
  • One of the tables contains a HEIGHT=100% attribute.
  • The tables do not have end tags.

Scenario 2

  • A child table is listed inside a parent table.
  • The child table has a HEIGHT=100% attribute.


Contact the creator of the Web page with this information.

More information

If a table height is set to 100%, then each table must have an end tag.

Note: Prior to Internet Explorer version 5.5, Internet Explorer did not process the HEIGHT attribute.
