I have a Word document that is 209 pages.  I want to print pages 69-80, but it won't send these pages to any printer (I have tried multiple printers).  I suspect there is a problem with the document itself not registering pages.  But I'm not sure how to fix this.

I see that at some point, your sections are formatted so that the Page Number starts over at 0.  This continues quite a way.

I don't know your Word version, but I can tell you the steps in 2003.  Your actions may differ a bit.

Click on View > Header and Footer.
From the Toolbar, click on Show Next.  You will jump to Section 2.
Look at the status bar at the bottom.  You will see that it says:  "Page 2 Sec 2 2/209."  The "Page 2" portion is what the printer looks for.
Click on Show Next until you reach Section 6.  This one says:  "Page 0 Sec 6 16/209."  This is the first of your problem.
Click on Format Page Number on the Toolbar.  Select the radio button for "Continue from previous section."
Make sure all subsequent sections are set that way.

Judging from the look of this document, I suspect you don't really to number this from 1-209.  Sadly, Word's print function is a little dumb in this regard.  If you want to print pages 69 through 80, I suggest you select pages 69 through 80 and then choose to print the Selection.
