Word printing problem

By jbuckland ·
We have a problem in word where our documents that are more than two pages with a "page __ of __" prints "page 2 of 2, page 3 of 3, page 4 of 4" instead of "page 2 of 4, page 3 of 4, page 4 of 4, etc". The only way we seem to be able to print the pages properly for the page numbering to work is to use reverse printing in our print options. Is there any way for us to not have to use the reverse print function and still have our pages number properly?

Sounds like this might be a printer driver problem and not a Word problem. Replace or update the printer driver and see if this fixes it.

Another way is to go to Print Preview a couple of times.
and/or
Clear check box for background printing

Make sure you have the latest Office update.

I would first check your field codes and see if the coding is the same which would cause the error. Ex. Page {PAGE} of {PAGE} it should read Page {PAGE} of {NUMPAGES}. And for the printing make sure your paper is listed correctly as Plain or Letterhead.

Try going into print preview and print from there. That's how I got around the same problem.

Close MS Word and delete the following two values from the registry.

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Data

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Word\Options
