I am using Calc for the first time. I can't find a way to show the ruler so I can tell when my columns are off the page. Can anyone help this nerbie find how to show the ruler on the left and top in inches preferably? thanks!

No rulers in Calc, AFAIK.
Page division shows as a slightly bolder row/column border after the first print or preview. The divider will update dynamically if you adjust row/column widths, page format, or print zoom factor.

I must be asking a decent question in a stupid way. I can see by your photo what it has done to you? Laughing I just want simple rulers, not divisions or such but on the left side of my work and the top so I can tell when my spreadsheet I'm creating is wider than 8.5" and longer than 11". Thus, to prevent in printing; one page being printed on two sheets. Is that better ... anyone .... someone? thanks!

In Page Break Preview [Top menu], mentioned by Villeroy, you can control the columns per page by dragging the blue delimiting lines.
