    Has anyone been able to print from WORD or EXCEL directly to a WIFI or LAN based printer on their LAN?..... Have three printer APKS installed (all seem to work with non MS apks) and native GOOGLE printer Apk/handler, and MS WORD or EXCEL can not find a PRINTER, unless it prints to the "cloud" and then its a issued to get it printed locally from cloud...For all the wonderful thing "office" does it is a "DUD' for when it comes to printing.... So frustrated I am about to dump MS products....

    On my tablet (Samsung 12.2 note), others have said that you have to pay for the subscription to office before anything prints. I haven't paid so I can't check that out. I use 'Printer Share' app to print everything else.

    I have on tablet...

    Hammermill Print
    PrintShare
    PrintHand
    Google- Cloud Print

    Basically WORD and EXCEL want to print to a PDF, if I force it to "All Printers", I get "searching for printers" and that is it....

    And "active apps" running indicate WORD and Print Spooler... So its trying to do something, but goes nowhere.... I would think if a subscription is required to print anything MS in its greed would be brash enough to make that statement....

    Ya, I gave up on all the MS stuff, I find Kingsoft much better, prints easily with PrinterShare and functions better then the MS stuff for the tablet

    PROGRESS: IF one uses "Share" and NOT Print, you can access local printers.... More later, maybe!

    The "share" option to print documents has been active since 2012. Printhand istructions included it for any network(read shared) printers. And as very few users actually physically connect to a printer most are "shared" Everything You Need to Know About Printing From your Android Phone or Tablet

    By going to Settings > More Networks > Printing, I was able to turn on Cloud Print and other printing services.... Why Is "Printing" hidden under ""More networks"?... It's not where I would expect to find it...
