    Printing Problems (Word 2000 SR-1)

    Having problems with a large word document. When sent to a printer for a single copy, it makes multiple copies of some pages but not all pages even though I requested just one copy. It does this on various printers but the next day I can print to the same printer with the same document and not have a problem. I'm baffled. Any ideas? <img src=/S/brickwall.gif border=0 alt=brickwall width=25 height=15>

    Let's see...

    Document corruption comes to mind. Or, your OS
    local spooler service is not working properly.

    Or, if we're talking LAN here, the print server spooler
    service is busted.

    If this is the only document that hiccups, try a google
    search on "word document corruption"

    We are talking a LAN and this isn't the only time this has happened to a variety of documents and people. Is the print spooler service something that handles all print jobs for all network printers?

    The Windows NT and 2000 server Printer Service (spooler) handles all
    the printers installed on that server. Each server with printers
    has the printer service installed.

    Keep in mind your LAN people may be by-passing the spooler
    service and printing directly to the print server installed in
    each printer. It can get confusing. I recommend always using
    the Printer Service (spooler), for what it's worth.
