IE Problem with printing more than 1 page

Dear sirs,

I have a very strange problem :-(

I'm designing a web-application with long forms, that some people edits on one side and I need to print them on an other place.

The PROBLEM is, that when I print any of the forms from the browser (IE 5.0), then the first page is printed correctly, but the others contain only the header of the IE (URL, data, pages), but nothing else...

There is no break in the page, such as new tables, color changes or anything else. No matter what form I am printing, just the first page comes out... Why???

This problem occurs on many stations, but not on each of them. Other internet pages are printed correctly :-( (This is the most strange thing).

>> Could it be caused by some security settings on IE?? I've looked at the web but did not found any nown bug.

Important (maybe) note: The intranet is running on a Lotus Domino server R5 (AS400 machine).

Thanks & regards
Aegressy

Any chance to check with WindowsUpdate and upgrade IE 5.0 with all the fixes and patches?  This has been a known problem on older versions of this browser; many of which were fixed in subsequent upgrades, available from WindowsUpdate.

There were many bugs and problems in IE 5.0, most of which have been fixed in subsequent released and updates.  Since I've not heard back from you on recommendations made, can't guess at what else you need.  This will give you the BIG PICTURE of IE 5.0 and bugs/printing.

http://msft.kanisasolution.com/search/nlsearch.aspx?Catalog=LCID%3d1033%26CDID%3dEN-US-KB%26PRODLISTSRC%3dON&Product=msie5&Query=bugs%2520printing&Queryc=bugs+printing&REF=false&srchstep=0&KeywordType=ALL&Titles=false&numDays=&maxResults=25

I can only assume that the information I provided you has helped, and as such will propose this as an Answer in the hopes it will be finalized (or a response from you).  I rarely Propose an Answer, but given the amount of information provided and lack of response assume you've been helped.

Thank you,

Highfive + Dolby Voice = No More Audio Complaints!

Poor audio quality is one of the top reasons people don’t use video conferencing. Get the crispest, clearest audio powered by Dolby Voice in every meeting. Highfive and Dolby Voice deliver the best video conferencing and audio experience for every meeting and every room.

When you access the link I provided above, I chose to truncate the returns at 25 records, you can modify that to larger search results, if needed ....

Good luck.

Personally, I feel like I've been talking to myself here, and don't like wasting my time or that of the person asking the question, so going to log off and "assume" I've helped.

Putting out a sign that says "GONE FISHING", much like the Asker of this question appears to have done.

Highfive Gives IT Their Time Back

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!
