A user here is unable to print specified pages with Word 2003. When she press ALT-P and select "Pages", she types "1,2,4,9,10" but the whole document get printed.

A reboot has been done, Office reinstallation and Windows Update has also been performed.

Any takers?

Thanks, David.

Are you sure the radio button is changing to "selected pages:" from "whole document"?

Just did some quick research, and it looks like it could be the file if it is the result of a letter-type merge or uses sections. Have you tried having another user print the same document from another terminal? If it is a letter-type merge/uses sections it will require specifying sections to print.

God damn! I just can't believe that you are right! – r0ca Jul 23 '10 at 18:38
Even a broken clock is right twice a day! :) Glad it worked. – JNK Jul 23 '10 at 18:40
