According to the review found HERE, that is the case. From that review -The only real omission is lack of full duplex (two-sided) printing ? although there is a manual duplex option if you don?t mind standing by the printer and turning the pages over by hand.

Hey guys! I hope I am posting this in a correct section?!
So my problem is that when I want to print on both sides on my Windows 7 x64 it is suggesting only "Print on both sides (Manually)". But I want it automatically.
The printer types is HP Color LaserJet CP 2025dn. The printer itself is able to do this function, because the other computers in my network which has Windows xp have an option to print on both sides (not manually) automatically.
So I really don't get this, what's the matter? Windows 7? Printer?
Thank you very much

A:Print on both sides automatically on Windows 7

Hi Hikeman

This is a printer function rather than Windows. I'd try a driver update and then configure the printer.

Hi I have a book of small book size 100 pages and I want to print this book on both sides of paper with two pages per side.

I am using windows XP and adobe acrobat reader XI version higher than 11.0 and a old printer.

I have tried to do this and print two pages on one side by selecting multiple option in layout but there is no zoom I mean very small letters were printed and the remaining space has been wasted.

Then in order to print even pages on one side and odd pages on other side I have tried to print even pages first but failed I mean all the pages have been printed including odd pages also.
For this I have followed instructions given in the page below

Kindly suggest how the above two can be achieved at the same time.

First, is it possible to print on both sides of a sheet of paper in Word 2000?
Second, is it possible to print on both sides of a sheet of paper in Word 2000 using Mail Merge?
The Microsoft website and Word 2000 help did not offer any solutions. Thank you.

A:Word 2000 Printing Both sides/Mail Merge

First of all, when you say print two sided, do you mean in one pass through the printer? That depends on the printer: is it a duplex printer and do you have the appropriate driver for it? If you're not sure, you can put the make and model here and we can probably figure it out. Generally, you can just go to the web site or the owner's manual for its capabilities.

Second, a document, mailmerge or otherwise, does not care whether you print it one- or two-sided.

Hello everyone,

I am looking for a way to have a designated folder that automatically prints all files that are placed within that folder. The kind of files that will be stored in the folder are Microsoft Fax files, and this will be on a machine that functions as a fax server. As soon as a new Microsoft Fax file is placed into the folder, a copy is automatically sent to an installed printer. Can anyone suggest the easiest way to have this set up?

I had Word which I uninstalled because I like the simplicity of wordpad better, so that could have something to do with it.. I need to toy a little more, but basically have it fixed or almost fixed, unless anyone has any quick pointers to throw in.. =)

I have a problem.. every time I try to open any document that opens with Wordpad it opens for a second, goes straight to the printer and tries to print automatically (only thing that stops it is the print preview where I cancel), and then closes, making it impossible for me to view the document (not to mention it tries to print everytime).

I can open Wordpad and then open documents that way through the program and everything is fine, but if I try to open any other way the documents themselves without opening from inside Wordpad, it doesn't work and just tries to go directly to the printer..

Ok, I have a TOC created and the page numbers update automatically depending where the various headings are placed. My question now is this:

Is there a way to alter the default page numbering and have that custom page numbering be reflected in the TOC?

For example:
Here is an example of how the TOC is currently laid out:

ARTICLE I FUNDING.................................................3
Section 1.1 AoP........................................................3

The problem here is that these items are actually on page 2. In effect, the table of contents is page 0 with normal numbering commencing thereafter (1, 2, 3 etc.)

Hi. I am new to the forum and have been irritated by this problem for some time now. I am, by no means a tech guy, but am not completely clueless either. So, I've tried changing preferences, etc, but nothing seems to work for me.

Basically, if I have a document open in MSFT Word (2008) for Mac, and I click away from the window, it turns the Word Window into a thin sliver automatically. So, each time I want to go back to the word document, I need to drag the bottom right corner to resize the page to a readable width. I set my page in Print Layout View (not sure if that has anything to do with the issue or not). I just need a way for the page to stay the same size I put it at from when I first open the document. Seems like a simple enough issue, so I don;t know what the deal is.

Any information would be great. If I'm not explaining it correctly, let me know.

Thanks so much.

Anyhow I have managed to copy these over into a folder but the problem I have is that the name of the document is not on the actual document so when these are printed out an passed over to a third party to look at and change it looks like i am going to have to write the name of the document onto each one.

Make sure that you have a printer selected at the time.

Its also possible that a corrupted file can cause this, and any document that you create will use this as a template.

Find and delete any instances of (you must have at least 1, if you cannot find any then its more to do with the search preferences, as it may be a hidden or system file)

Word will create a new file when it first runs.

It may not fix any older documents you have created but copying and pasting the contents to a new document may help after deleting

Hi Guys,
Kinda weird problem occurred this morning. Word 2000 document was working fine and printing okay, first thing this morning. After a spell of inactivity it refused to print the full document - only printing the word art title (Not in header slot).
The document is a mix of word art header - two tables midway to bottom of first page - table on 2nd page. The print page setup is to print as a 'legal size - 8 1/2" to 14", if i change this to A4 it will print but due to formatting it splits the 2nd table and adds a 3rd page.
I have uninstalled Word 2000 and reinstalled, deleted printer and reinstalled - all still the same. I can transfer file to another PC over network and it prints okay. I saved it on the 2nd PC and then copied back and it is still the same.
Other Legal Size documents print okay, so i then re-typed the document, it prints okay - excepting the 2nd table that goes to bottom of 1st page it is a 10 row table, it only prints 7 1/2 rows and moves onto 2nd page.
I know you can scale from printer panel Etc - but what irritates me is that the document prints on any other pc / printer combo, i have uninstalled and reinstalled everything but no joy. Rather than format and reinstall - has anyone got any other ideas !
Thanks for any help offered.

Using Word 2007, P.C.
I would like to know how to set my printing preferences to read the actual number of pages in the document as opposed to what I have set in the header/footer. Let me explain:
I have a document which is 30 pages. However, I have set section breaks so that I could set up the header and footer to start numbering page 1 on the actual page 3 (the first two pages of the document are title pages.) Anyway, the header numbers then read 1-28, with 28 written in the header on actual page 30.
When I go to print... and I want to specify which pages to print, let's say I want actual page range 17-20 tp print; well, I type in 17-20 into the field on the print box, but then actual pages 19-22 print because the printer read the header/footer page number, instead of the document's actual page number.
Can I change the printer settings to read the actual document page number instead of the header/footer number? I have never done anything like that, so I would need fairly specific directions of where to go inorder to make these changes, if at all possible; also, I am a little uneasy with Word 2007 and how to locate certain applications and settings, so I might need general help getting to the right area. Thanks so much!

To remove the read only attribute on a file just find the file in Windows Explorer and right-click the filename. Select Properties from the drop-down list. At the bottom of the properties screen you can enable or disable the attributes.

Making a file read only normally does not prevent printing. What happens when you try to print?

Hello all,

I'm new to this site, but not to forums in general. I know that these are vast resources for help (better than MS KB Articles - And I DO NOT know everything) Anyway, I need some help TS a problem that is driving me and my colleague CRAZY.

It seems that a few of our networked XP Pro SP2 boxes have been losing the ability to print envelopes in Word 2002 (OXP - SB). The "Print" button, under Tools...Envelopes & Labels keeps getting grayed-out. Sometimes a reboot does not reactivate it, and another is req. This is what we've done:

*Run MS Update & Office Update (SP3)
*Changed/updated printer drivers
*Verified Licenses & Activation (Magic Jelly Bean)
*Add/Remove - Repair Office
*Uninstall/Reinstalled Office 2X
*MSKB Article 820919 (Support Template)

Both boxes are running Kaspersky AVfWW
Printer is a JetD networked HP LJ 4000

We have also been playing around with a Shavlik NetChk Protect Demo (Patch Distribution/Management System)

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

Thank You

A:MS Word: Can't Print Envelopes

Hi and welcome to the forum.
You probably need to enable envelope printing as well as set a proper paper type in the envelope tray for it all to work.
Go to printers & faxes > LJ4000 right click > properties > printing preferences or device settings.

Windows XP SP3, Office 2003 Standard w/SP3 in a Windows domain environment.
All printers installed are connected to a Windows Server 2000 print server.

Word 2003 suddenly lost all print function. No changes where made to the
system. If I click on File/Print? the print options dialog box does not pop
up. I can click on the print button in the toolbar (it highlights and is
clickable) but nothing happens. I can perform a print preview and attempt to
print but with the same issues.

I can click on Start/Printers and Faxes and print a test page. I can click
on the Adobe add-in button and convert it to a PDF and print the document
from Adobe. I can print from Excel, notepad, WordPad, Adobe and even IE7 if I
wanted to, just not Word (Outlook included because Word is the default email

Attempted fixes:
Delete, delete and excel1.xlb (seen this restore
functionality before), checked for any disabled items and found none,
performed a repair installation, performed a complete reinstall of Office
2003, logged in using a different user account using different printers, all
with no luck.

Suggestions appreciated....

I created a Microsoft Word document that included 23 screen shots from the Internet. The screen shots displayed just fine until I closed and re-opened the document; now only 2 of the screen shots are visible, and 21 of the screen shots are not visible. Instead, each non-visible screen shot was replaced by a small black outlined square, and the following message was displayed: "There is not enough memory or disk space to display or print the picture." I know that there WAS enough memory and disk space because everything was displayed properly before I closed the file.

I am using Windows XP and Microsoft Word 2003. In Word, in Tools, Options, View tab, in the "Show" area, "Picture placeholders" is un-checked.

Please note thread name inaccurate. Problem is in Office 2003 and Firefox.

Hi there

I am an IT professional and expert but I have to admit I'm stumped with this problem.

I cannot print to my Xerox Phaser 6280DN PS using Word 2003, Excel 2003, Firefox. Other packages do print, including Wordpad and Acrobat. The OS is Windows 7 64bit, the printer driver is from Microsoft's 'get a driver for W7 64' page.

The printer is connected to my LAN and no other computer on the LAN has a problem. Previous to the install (fresh) of Windows 7 64bit, Windows XP had no problems printing from anything.

Actually, I can't get Word to print on any of the print-like devices listed, including the MS XPS Document writer and Cute PDF writer.

I've googled til I'm blue in the face for months and months.

I do suspect this is a security issue and something to do with user rights, although my account has admin rights.

Please, someone, save me from the misery of converting everything to rtf and printing through wordpad!



A:Can't print. Word 2003 only.

HI. We have having issues with Xerox copiers also. It seems that with windows 7 the print driver must be certified otherwaise you get prompted for admin rights. Under server 2008 there is a GPO which is called point and print that is meant to take away the prompting but I couldn't get it to work [and judging by the google responses, nobody else could] I have noticed that some of the Xerox drivers we have tried are certified but the certificate has expired which makes me wonder if Xerox are hacking certified drivers about.

I am trying to create a contract template for our lawn care business. There are 22 different services that our customers can choose to add, each with a price specific to their own property. At the bottom of the service and pricing list there is a "sub-total" line, with a "5% discount" line underneath, and under that the "total" line.

Like so:

weekly lawn maintenance $35.00 Is there a way to "make" these numbers add up, and
Shrub trimming $150.00 appear in the areas below? So that we don't have to
Fertilization $35.00 manually do all of the calculations, thereby saving
ourselves literally days of work.​Sub-total $220.00
5% discount $11.00
Total $209.00

Also, on the contract we have payment options for our customers. Another big time consumer has been manually calculating these options.

Like so:

$209.00 payable at a flat rate over 9 months (March through November) = $23.22/month
If I can get the "total" number from above to automatically calculate and "jump" to the figures in red above, that would be simply wonderful.

I know that in excel the calculations can be done by creating a spreadsheet (although I do not know how to make a spreadsheet), but I this contract is a legal document and needs to appear so. I'm hoping that Word has a way to do this as well.

I am using Windows Home Edition OS with MS Word 2002. To insert the date automatically in a letter the help file gives the following instruction:

To automatically insert the current date
Type the first four characters of the current date.
For example, type febr for February. Microsoft Word displays the current month: "February."

Press ENTER to insert the month, and then type a space.
Word displays the current date — for example, "February 13, 2002" or "13 February 2002."
Press ENTER to insert the entire date.
Note If the current date is not displayed, you may need to turn on the AutoComplete feature. On the Insert menu, point to AutoText, and then click AutoText. Select the Show AutoComplete suggestions check box.
However all I can get it to do after following all of the above instructions is to insert the month. When I type a space nothing happens. Am I missing something?

I have removed, then re-installed the printer which changed nothing. I can't uninstall // reinstall Word as I only have a product key -- no disk.
