    Hi there,

    I am running Vista Home Premium, Publisher 2007, Epson Stylus Photo R800
    printer.
    i want to print 10 business cards on some precut business card paper. i
    designed my card, then when i go to set the print margins, this is where i
    have the issue. i set the top margin .5", side margin .75, Horz gap .0", Vert
    gap .0", just like the precut sheet. i should see 10 business cards, but only
    the top 6 cards show, with room for the 4 other cards, but that area is
    blank. i have tried this on laser jet printer as well, with the same results.
    i am familiar with publisher and formatting the printer, so i am quite
    baffled. i have dug around and looked at every setting i could find, with no
    luck. i used the snipping tool to capture an image of the issue, is there a
    way to upload that pic?

    Curious, it doesn't appear limited to Publisher 2007.. I am working o
    a very similar issue with Publisher 2000 on Vista, and it locks up o
    load. However, opening the exact same file under Windows 2000/Publishe
    2000, it works just fine. I originally thought it was a link to anothe
    system..

    Hopefully I can figure this one out quickly (as I haven't found
    solution anywhere yet.

    Possible solution...

    I found that since the printer changed, it is looking for the ol
    record, and old printer before it loads.. Unfortunately, this issue wa
    not accounted for in Vista. (Not sure if this occurs in 7, but I plan t
    check.)

    On my system, I was able to overcome this fault using a simpl
    method..

    Browse to the location of mspub.exe, normally

    c:\program files(x86)\microsoft office\office\

    Right click on the file, click on the tab / Compatibility \ and chec
    the first box, and set it to XP SP2.

    This will use the older methods of device verification and fixed th
    one I was chasing.

    Thankfully this worked because the files weren't opening correctl
    under Win2k for some reason.

    Good luck

    Hi..!
    I think you no need to effort much because, as their is much demand fo
    business cards you can make a print of your business card according t
    your requirements.
    Good luck...

    I've written a 16 page booklet on MS Publisher using A5 pages (printe
    on A4 paper, with 2 pages per piece of paper)

    Is there a way to get it to print the pages double sided, so that whe
    I print them I can just fold the booklet and staple it? At the moment
    it prints one sided - which means there are blank pages in between eac
    page

    I tried going into Printer Settings and changing it to print "doubl
    sided" but when I printed the document it did not print in the correc
    order

    Any help?

  6. The answer depends entirely on what printer you have. Some can do that
    and some can't. Check the instructions that came with it.
