    Printing Envelops (Win 98 SE Word 2000)

    I am desperate. I can't figure out why regular sized envelops (one at at time) will no longer print for me.
    Tools, Envelops and Labels everything appears to merge as normal but no matter what I do (reset default on printing, troubleshoot the whole printing etc etc) I still haven't corrected it. I don't believe it that I can't figure out what is not happening.

    HELP..

    What happens when you try to print an envelope?

    Re: Printing Envelops (Win 98 SE Word 2000)

    Nothing appears to go through to the printer. That is, when I put the envelop where I always have put it to print out (and I've tried every other alternative position too) the info from word 2000 doesn't print.

    I feel absolutely silly stupid about this that I can't find the answer. Thanks.

    Have you looked at the printer queue to see if anything is waiting to go to the printer. (Start > Settings > Printers > Open the specific printer

    What sequence of menu actions are you taking in Word to try and print envelopes?

    There is nothing in the printer queue. A letter is up composed in Word 2000. I click Tools,Envelops and Labels, the address and return address appear as they normally do, envelop is put in printer where I normally put it, and I click print. The envelop goes "through" the printer but nothing apperas on it.

    Is this only with envelopes? If not, I assume you've checked for ink. Does this happen with labels, mail merge? I know that there is an AutoText entry EnvelopeExtra1 & EnvelopeExtra2 (although I forgot when they're used).

    Instead of printing the envelope, select "Add to document". Then check the styles & font. Are they hidden? Are they based on a style that's hidden? Will it print as part of the document?

    I think we went through this before.....and it isn't you! It is a bug -- see this thread Post 170664 for a solution.

    Thank you. I've tried everything you suggested and still haven't come up with the answer.

    Re: Printing Envelops (Win 98 SE Word 2000)

    Thank you. I've tried all suggested in the threads. My printer is a Compaq IJ 750, my computer also a Compaq. What is occurring (and I've even uninstalled and reinstalled my printer) is that from Word 2000 it will simply not print the #10 envelopes that I've mostly always used. It will print other size envelopes. And I've tried putting in two envelopes, etc. as suggested. I've also tried doing it from the manual slot and the automatic slot on the printer. Problem still not solved.

    Check the manufacturer's website for an up to date driver. That's all I can think of. <img src=/S/thinks.gif border=0 alt=thinks width=15 height=15>

    Re: Printing Envelops (Win 98 SE Word 2000)

    Hi, did you try to put a plain sheet of paper through instead of an envelope to determine if something is printing, just off of the envelope? Print an envelope, only feed plain paper through instead. Whatever prints on the page will help determine what the problem is.

    If the page that you put through as a substitute for an envelope comes out blank, then I don't know what the problem could be, especially since you say you have already updated the printer driver.

    It sounds as if the printer is receiving data and trying to print...let us know what you find.

    Thanks.

    Re: Printing Envelops (Win 98 SE Word 2000)

    Today I tried to print "almost" every envelope size listed in my Word 2000 on a full size sheet of paper. The results are it prints only from the automatic bin/tray (as opposed to the manual tray and it will print everything from size #11 envelops and on up. So hurrah, hurrah. Some success. Thank you.
