Hi Jim,

It appears that your spreadsheet is formatted for A4 paper - a European
paper format that is different from the standard 8.5x11 letter format
we're used to here in the US.  You can fix this using the format menu:

Format >> Page >> Page tab

Select the Letter format in the Paper Format section of the dialog.  You
can also choose the orientation from there.  Hope this helps.
