    Word Printing

    I have some Word 2000 documents that take forever to print out. They are roughly 200k. When I print them, it will print the first 3 pages, stop, print some more, stop, and so on. There are protected sections on the documents. Don't know why this would make a difference. It doesn't seem to matter on what type of printer I print to either. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Hmmm... do you have several fields or links which are updating? In Windows, are you set to print directly to the printer or spool first? You don't indicate if you're at home, or work, or if there are multiple PC's available, but if so you may want to try printing from a different PC to see if it still hangs. I have seen such things happen, but they are generally related to corrupt or improper printer drivers.

    Try:-
    Printer setup:
    Select 'Start printing after last page is spooled'

    I would try saving the file in Word95 format and opening it with that version of Word before saving it and then trying again with whatever version you are using. For some reason that often cleans up errant files.
