    page numbers do not print (Word 2003)

    My friend has an hp zd7180 laptop with Word 2003. He has an hp2000c printer. He has tried to print a document with page numbers. The top and bottom margins were re-set to 1 inch. They had previously been set at 1/2 inch. Either way, the whole number does not print out, only a very small portion of the top of the number. Any suggestions as to what the problem might be and what to do about it? Thank you very much.

    Sounds like this may be a "printable area" issue with the printer or a driver issue. Check the owner's manual for minimum margins (think it is 0.46 in. for this printer). Then double click on the page number in the footer to see the exact vertical position of the page number. If this is OK, try obtaining the latest drivers from HP. Looks like the latest drivers for the 2000C are Windows 2000 drivers (this is an old printer) but if you are using XP, they may work.

    Thank you so much. You are good! I went to HP's website. Yes, the latest drivers are for Windows 2000. Also, the minimum margins for his printer are 0.46 in. His margins were set at 1/2 inch and then at 1 inch. However, the problem was the distance from the edge of the header and footer. It had been set at 0.5. I had my friend change it to 0.6. That solved the problem. Thank you again.
