Printing Issue in Word 2010-Never had a Problem before today


  • I was trying to print a new document with text and numbers to the right with a decimal tab. I tried printing numbers of times and my paper came out blank.

    Why am I having this problem. Never did before and have had the same printer and the same program. Running Windows 7 and Microsoft Word 2010.

  • Hi,

    This issue may occur if you select the "Print only the data from a form" check box in Word:

    Click File -> Options -> Advanced -> Under When printing this document, uncheck the "Print only the data from a form" check box, see blow image:

    If you did not select this option, please verify following questions:

    a. Is the issue only with Word documents or with all applications?

    b. Does the printer appear in the list of available printers in the File>Print dialog?

    c. Are you using the latest version of the Printer Driver? - Go to the manufacturer's website and check for an updated driver.

    If the issue is only with Word, you may try the steps provided in the below article:

    Best regards.
