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.

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

Issue is solved. Thank you for all comments.
I use Office 2003. The problem is on the textbox of the word template. For some reason, some of the text boxes shows a forwarding link which need to be broken. Otherwise, the value of the textbox cannot be printed.
Luckly, I found the issue because I am not the template creator. Thanks for all.

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.
