    Re: Word 2002

    Are they both using the same printer driver? is that printer driver a post script printer?

    I too always suspect printer drivers first. I am at home so I cannot look at the drivers but IT assures me they are the latest. The printer here is an HP 4 plus, unknown is the printer driver in NY. I am sure they are using HPs as well and possibly 8100s but I'd have to ask. Do you have any other suspects? Thank you so much!

    I have the same problem but, with labels.
    It has to do with the printer drivers (PS vs PCL.)
    On WIN 98 the reside on your machine, on W2k they reside out on the server. I can create the labels on my W2k, Word XP, but when I go to print I lose the bottom 2". If i take these down to the WIN98, Word 97, I can print them but only to a PS printer, not a PCL printer.
    My solution may not be feasible for you, because I have a laptop that is WIN98, Word 2k that I had to resort to using.

    Love the emoticons, usually I don't. Indeed, a laptop alternative is not feasible in this situation but I'll keep it in mind. I doubt the drivers are PSs but ya' never know.... Thanks very much.

    Actually the problem is not the PS but the PCL drivers.

    It sounds as though you are using HP printers, and the drivers are often the culprit. One possibility is to check the HP web site for an updated driver - we occasionally fix weird printing problems that way. (Nice to see another Coloradoan in the Lounge.)
