Word document won't print single pages

Posted on 2013-06-28
Last Modified: 2013-07-01
I have a 198 page word document that has both text and full page jpegs. The entire document will print but if you try and print just one page or a few pages, it quickly appears in the print que and then disappears without ever printing. I have tried saving it as a newer version, checked all settings including advanced, tried saving the jpegs seperately, tried printing different pages and even saved the doc as a totally seperate name. No dice. Has anyone ever heard of this? Any help would be appreciated.

I've also tried different printers and printing from different boxes.

Out of curiosity, have you tried printing to an XPS file?

It just might be a corrupt document. You could try saving it as RTF, closing and reopening it. That should force a rebuild.

Saving the entire doc as an xps allows me to print page ranges. So, that works. I was never able to save it to RTF or print to XPS. I kept getting a host of errors. Regardless, I'll work with the XPS file. I do appreciate your help!!

Solution gave me a work around that was sufficient. I was not successful with some of the suggestions. I believe the file to be corrupt. Thanks!!

Thanks. You might find now that saving it back to a .doc(x) file will also work. It is the rebuild process that irons out the problem.
