Can't Print Range of Pages in Word 2010 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I can't print a range of pages from a 102-page Word 2010 mail merged document.  Word starts printing all of the pages before I cancel the print job.

    I have the same problem in both the .doc and docx formats.

  • You need to specify the Section number of the "pages" that you want to print by inserting s before the number

    s1, s3, s7-s10 etc.

  • That resolved my problem.  I was able to print the desired range using s97-s102 or s1,s46 etc.

    Thanks,

  • The answer is helpful; the behavior of Microsoft Word in requiring section number to be identified when trying to print a range of pages is, however, anything but.  I've wasted a lot of time and paper with this.
