    Is Print *Pages* (range) broken? (Word XP SP1)

    Just a quick question: Does anyone know if there's a bug with the Print 'Pages' function? I have a user who has a 70-page document. She just wants to print amended pages, e.g, 53-58, however, when this is entered and OK is pressed, nothing happens. The print icon appears for a second in the System Tray, but then it goes, and the job doesn't appear in the Print Queue (we're on Win2K Server).

    We copied some pages (e.g., 53-58) and pasted them into WordPerfect, and they printed without a problem. We also tried printing the whole document, and that printed OK too. It's only when a Range is selected that nothing happens.

    As stated, is this a bug? Or has anyone come across this before? Is there a workaround?

    Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    It's not necessarily a bug. The range option is related to page numbering.

    If the document has multiple sections, and page numbering restarts at 1 in each section, Word doesn't "see" pages numbered 53-58. I have attached an example of the page indicator in the lower left corner of the Word window. The current page is number 8 in a 10 page document, but Word sees it as page 2 in section 3. To print this page, enter p2s3 in the Range box.

    To print the entire section 3: enter s3.
    To print starting at page 4 of section 2 through page 2 of section 3: enter p4s2-p2s3.

    Is this document starting from page 0, or she manually changed which page it starts from. If you start the page count from a different number, take that into account when you choose which pages to print.

    Thanks for your help; it turned out that this was the reason it wasn't printing that range. We normally use WordPerfect 10, so we were not used to having to deal with printing 'Sections'.

    Your help was very much appreciated.

    Thanks again. [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]
