    When a document is displayed in PDF and I select only specific page numbers to print, different pages will print out. i.e. I selected pages 34 and 35 only and got pages 24 and 25. Is a different procedure required for printing PDF pages? HP psc 2410 Photosmart all-in-one printer. Windows XP home. Thanks

    I've had similar problems and found this explanation on a "Medicare" web site.

    "Page Numbering in Adobe

    Adobe Acrobat Reader numbers pages differently from the document within the reader. Adobe Acrobat simply looks at the number of total pages within a document, and begins with the number 1 for the first page. While this makes sense in some cases, this numbering does not allow for unnumbered pages, such as Cover pages and Table of Contents.

    In the example above, (See link below for full description) an excerpt from a larger document was placed into its own PDF publication. This excerpt contains pages 5, 6, and 7 of a document, but appears as pages 1, 2, and 3 in the Adobe Acrobat Reader.

    Please remember this numbering difference. Many of the PDF documents on the Medicare.gov website contain references to other pages within the document. It is important to use the page numbers on the actual document pages in order to navigate to referenced pages. The Adobe Acrobat Reader page numbers should be used as more of a guide to how many total pages a document contains."

    Logoner,

    You might want to make a habit of using "Print Preview" to make sure that you are getting what you expect!
