Cannot Print Individual Page From Word Document

An employee in our office is not able to print an individual page from a Word document on a network drive.  These are the steps I have taken to narrow down the issue.  These are in reverse order, so start at the bottom.

It does sound like a corrupt document. You can force Word to restructure a document by copying and pasting it to a blank document. That might be worth trying.

with another user who has the same permissions, you can print a single page

Can you print a single page to another printer - eg such as  PDF one?

I would suggest that you do a repair on the document itself as well to be sure.   with the document NOT open, use File Open in Word and on the Open button select the drop down arrow next to it, from the list select - Open and Repair

I am an administrator and cannot print an individual page from this document.  So, no.

I performed an Open and Repair and it did not resolve the issue.  When I try to print, the bubble pops up from the system tray and says that the document has been sent to the printer, but does not actually print.

Yeah I put that in the initial post.  I tried one other printer and it did not work, so I just assumed that using the other 15 printers we have in the office probably won't work either.  Also, the job is not staying in the print queue.

I am at lunch right now, but will try that when I get back. Now I did try a "save as..." On the document to her desktop but I can understand why that may not work.

That didn't work either.  I'm wondering if it's some kind of formatting within the document that prevents printing one page of it, but I don't see anything out of the ordinary.

Correction:  That actually did work.  I had to copy the text, close the document, open a new Word document, paste the text, and then print.

Thanks Graham

You had it completely right, except I had to close the originial document/Word, open a new instance of Word, paste, then print.
