"She can't print this document."
Tell more on why she can't and what happens if she tries.
- Any particular things on this particular document?
- How is print preview?
- What version(s) of Word (with you and with her)?
- "Other documents" = her own or also comparable documents sent by you?
- Save as .rtf, then open. Printable now?
- Tried Open Office Writer to print?
- Can she print to pdf (using Cutepdf or a similar program)? Result?
What brand/model of printer ?
What operating system ?
Did she print direct ? Save the attachment first.
Was she able to open the Word attachment ?
Does your document contain macros ? Tell her to try lowering Word's "macro security". (Tools>Options. Security tab...)
I agree about email attachments.
Generally you would "save" an attachment to the hard disk first, (eg the Desktop as a temporary place), then open it from there after virus checking it, and then printing it.
What error messages does she get when she tries to print?
Can't Print One Specific Word File
She doesn't get an error message...She clicks on the print panel...gets that up OK...When she clicks OK to start the print process..nothing happens after that...Curiously...I tried to print it on my Windows machine and had the same problem...and it was only with that word file...no other word files had that problem...just that one file...I'm wondering if there is something corrupt in that file to prevent it from printing...It does print on my MAC machine...so there may be some issue with the Mac to Windows crossover...I have MAC Microsoft Office 2004 and she has Windows Microsoft Office 2003...There shouldn't be any problems because I always send her stuff from my MAC to her Windows and she is able to open the file and print it with no problems...Just this one file.
When the Print Dialog comes up, is the correct printer selected?
If you open the document, do a Select All, Copy it and paste it into a new document can you print it?
Document does not print.
1. Yes the correct printer is selected
2. We tried copy and paste onto another new document and strangely enough it still did not print.
Try this, (if you haven't already).
Send your friend another copy of this document. Make sure it prints from your MAC first, then send it. It may be that something got lost during the send/receive process.
Document would not print
Yes, we did that as well...turned out the same...Simply would not print..
Thanks for you persistence...appreciate it....
Document would not print
My colleague had a similar problem recently. Same scenario, sent him a few attachments, one wouldn't print. We are both on Windows Vista so no system may not be the issue.
In our instance it turned out that it was something do with images and track changes. Once he saved the document to his hard drive, opened it in Word and turned off track changes THEN he could print it.
Try turning off track changes then re-send your document to your friend and see if that works.
Hope that's of some use.
I too had the same problem with 2003 document..i tried printing using office 2007 it worked...i also tried a different solution it might look starnge 4 u..i created a new document saved it and gave a print to make sure its working..after doing so i copied the contents to the saved document and tried printing ..it worked..but i did nt understand the logic behind it
possible logic behind "try dis"
in my case, I had to remove the € sign from the document name before I was able to print. I presume it had noting to do with word because the document came visible in my printer queue. I guess my printer had trouble with the document because it did not recognize the €-sign in my document name. So make sure you remove any special characters before printing.
unable to print specific word document
Even thought its old post. I am posting a solution which I tried by myself for this problem. In MS Word I cant print all other documents except 1 particular and I tried hard to search online help but could not find any and I kept trying....Here is what I did..
Save As <Newfilename>
Document type <Select word97-2003 rtf)
and I was able to print
Sorry to bump an old thread, but I had the same problem with a document I was working on and tried most of the above to no luck. The only way I got it to print was to open a new word document and copy over the content from the non-working document, and hey-presto it sent to the printer!
Very old issue, but today I had the same problem: one single word document is not printing.
=> Tried to save as different document, different format (rtf), copy paste, different printer... nothing worked.
The document would print preview, but never entered in a printer cue.
My solution: opened the .doc with OpenOffice 3.4 and it printed without a glitch!
I'm guessing it was somewhere a conversion error because someone already edited the document with OpenOffice or so...
Excel docs won't print
i cannot print any Excel documents sent to me. it doesnt seem to matter if i save them on the hard drive, or open them up in the email. They act like they're being sent to the printer; the printer starts flashing that it's receiving a document. Then the printer stops. there are no doc's in the print que. if i save it using a different name - still won't print. i have to copy each Excel worksheet to a new file, reformat the worksheet, then print. Also noted - all Word and Excel docs seem to be 'locked' somehow - Every doc requires me to "enable editing" to save or prin. Word is printing fine (once i "enable editing"). i've got a new laptop, with W7 and microsoft 2010 software. any suggestions?
Cant print from Microsoft word
I had the same problem where i couldnt print from Microsoft Word. Printing from other programmes worked fine.
The solution i found had to do with the fonts/ table/ word art/ object that corrupted the file (it may print from other computers but not on mine)
i found a solution on this link
specifically try the =rand(10) and print. if that printed like it did with mine. I changed the font on my file and it worked for some reason.
