Re: Mail Merge won't print

Well, the stuff you are seeing is the sort of PostScript code that would be
output when you print a file using the PostScript driver for the 5mp. I
don't have a 5mp here so cannot test this particular problem, but
a. do you always use the same printer name when printing to this printer?
(i.e. does the very same printer normally work OK?)
b. there are two different drivers for the 5mp - a non-PostScript one
called HP LaserJet 5MP and a PostScript one called HP LaserJet 5P/5MP
Postscript. If you have the other driver, try that as a workaround.
c. You could also try outputting your labels to a new document, then
printing that document (maybe you have already done that, but if so, try
opening that document, then checking Word Tools|Options|Compatibility
Options|"Print body text before header/footer" and printing a page or two.
All it does is to alter the sequence that Word outputs data to a PostScript
printer but maybe it will make a difference in this case.
