Debug Error/ print current page/ Background printing

I am trying to make a button to print the current page, though many of the pages are outside of the printable page area so i want to get rid of the dialog "outside of the...do you wish to continue..." box. I tried to piece together some code but i get a 424 object required error on the last line. Can anyone help? Here is what i have.

Sub PrintCurr()

    Application.DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsNone
    ActiveDocument.PrintOut Background:=False, Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage
    Application.DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsAll
   
End Sub

Thanks
Brad

Just a couple of totally random ideas to try....

since the value of the "wdAlertsAll" constant is -1, what happens if you try:

Application.DisplayAlerts = -1

Also, you should be able to leave off the "Application" part, so why not try:

Sub PrintCurr()

DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsNone
ActiveDocument.PrintOut Background:=False, Range:=wdPrintCurrentPage
DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsAll
   
End Sub

Although, I must say that I have also tested your original code, and like SQL_Stu, it worked perfectly on my machine.  And I did test it on a document with margins out of range.

Have u tried commenting out the 2 displayalerts lines?  Perhaps the problem lies in your remaining line of code?  Have u tried the printout line just using defaults?

Otherwise, I can't see a lot wrong with the above.

it prints if i get rid of the display alerts but i still see the dialog box, and it's the same when i use defaults on the print out line.

I'm at a loss to help as I've copy/pasted your code onto my PC and it works fine.

Where is your button located?  Perhaps Word cannot determine what the ActiveDocument is?

thanks for the help
the button is in one of my custom toolbars. the macro is located in a template which my document is built from. i tried to move the macro into the actual doc instead of the template but the same thing happened. when i run the debug the last line "Application.DisplayAlerts = wdAlertsAll" is highlighted.  I am also running word 2004 on Mac i don't know if that matters.
