Printing Word Document -- Eventually Runs Out of Memory or Reboots

I have a Word document that when I print it multiple times (like three), it starts garbling memory. If I do it programmatically (VB6), it even reboots Windows XP machine. This happens with at least three different printer drivers (two PDF and one Black Ice). Any ideas?

Perhaps if you 'program' to print 1 time and loop it through 3 times you may not run out of memory.  You can even code a 'pause' in the loop to allow for things to happen.

Sometimes things seem to run a little differently when you call programs from other programs.  Oddities can occur that may not happen if you run the program stand-alone.  Sometimes you must 'hack' your way around some of the things you are trying to do.  My suggesting is a 'hack'.   Maybe it will work
