Customer Question

MS Word and Excel won't print. When select print, print box won't come up. Other apps print OK, Adobe, Preview, Appleworks. Also, Word won't quit. Quit selection is dimmed. Can't get 'Force Quit' box to show. Trouble started when I designated a print area in Excel. I am using Word X and Excel X. Have reinstalled Word, no change.

Try downloading the latest drivers and software for your printer and seeing if that helps. If not, uninstall and re-install your printer, then uninstall and re-install MS office.

Hope this helps!

My printer works fine with all other applications so it is not the printer drivers.

I also told you that I have reinstalled MS word with no effect.
Expert:  Douglas replied 4 years ago.
Something is obviously amiss if MS office won't print. Try following the above instructions.

The printer drivers are fine as I have told you. And I have reinstalled MS Word, no change.
