cannot print the merged data with a background picture and text boxes

I have a word file with a background picture and text boxes. Then I merged data into it.
It looks so fine (Background picture with data in it) in print preview, BUT
don't know why once I press print, the print out missing some of the merged data.

I checked those textboxes and no different between the non-data box setup and with data text box. Please help. Thanks.

try printing to pdf or to snapshot instead of word.  
You may need to turn these settings on.

In Word 2003:
--Go to Tools > Options > Print Tab
--Make sure that "Background colors and images" is checked
--Make sure that "Drawing Objects" is checked
--Click OK and try printing again

In Word 2010:
--Go to File > Options > Display
--Look in the Print Options section
--Make sure that "Print drawings created in Word" is checked
--Make sure that "Print background colors and images" is checked
--Click OK and try printing again

It sounds like you would have to go to Tools > Options > Print tab, and tick the "Field Codes" option in addition to the other options listed by finalword.  That is obviously something that you could not expect other users to anticipate.

Luckly, I got the solution to compare all the textboxes.
