    print range in a mailmerge result (97)

    Hello all <img src=/S/hugs.gif border=0 alt=hugs width=41 height=25>

    One of our users has the following problem (I tried a search but came up zero)

    The user has created a mailmerge with a result of 40 pages
    After printing she sees that pages 10 till 20 have strips on the paper, so she wants to reprint those pages
    In the print dialog she selects to print page 10-20 and press [OK]
    The printer is printing 1 blanc page and nothing else <img src=/S/invisible.gif border=0 alt=invisible width=15 height=15>

    I see the problem, because every page has pagenumber 1, but is there a solution to this problem? <img src=/S/clever.gif border=0 alt=clever width=15 height=15>

    Thanks in advance,

    I suspect you can get around the problem by specifying the SectionNumber, then the Page number in the Print dialog box. You will need to view the pages the user wants to print to determine that, though if they are all single page documents it would look like <font color=blue>s10p1</font color=blue> to <font color=blue>s20p1</font color=blue>.

    Hello Wendell,

    Thanks for the reply, but it is not possible to select the sections in the pagerance settings.

    You can print a selection like that, but some header/footer information will not print if you do so. As Wendell notes above, each letter in your merge result is a separate section, you need to specify the print range for each section (from Word Help):
    <hr>When you merge form letters or similar types of merged documents to a new document, Word places each letter in a separate section of the new document. To print only specific letters from the new document, click Print on the File menu. In the Pages box, type the numbers of the sections that contain the letters you want to print. For example, to print the third, sixth, seventh, and eighth form letters, type s3,s6-s8 in the Pages box. To identify the section number, click a letter and then note the section number displayed at the bottom of the window; for example, "Sec 3."<hr>
    More detail on printing specific page ranges can be found by searching Word help for the topic, "Print specific pages and sections."
