Printing from MS Word to Okidata Microline 591
Posted on 2006-11-20
OK..... this is driving me crazy!!! I have several boxes of continuous 3-part paper forms that I need to add 1 line of text to. All I want to do is set up a page and get it lined up correctly, then print 500 copies (one full box). I have created a word document, and printed it on the Okidata 591 printer and it works great.... but when I attempt to print 500 copies, it turns ugly. I can see the problem, when it completes the first form, it does not advance the paper to the top of the next form, so it ends up printing the next copy on the same form. Is there any way of inserting a "advance to TOF" in word? Do I have to change my settings on my printer?
I would love to throw out all these forms and have the printing company make me new ones, but considering I have $5000 worth of forms sitting here, that really isn't an option. Any help and or suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated
