I am using Word (from Office 10) to print addresses on postcards using mail merge. The data source is from Excel (from Office 10). The problem is that out of 89 postcards about 13 names and addresses are missed. It does not appear to be a pattern the printing just skips some. I can go back and select those that were missed and they will print. Whats going on here? Is there a solution?

If you are merging to a document, thenm printing that document, are the "missing" ones missing from the document?

It could be that the printer is skipping some random pages, even though they exist in the merged document.

I have had this issue, and it was related to the printer port setting (parallel port needed to be ECP/EPP in BIOS). It never happened on smaller print runs.

It is not skiping random pages, rather random names. The names are part of the data because I just go back to the list and uncheck all the printed names and make sure the unprinted ones are still checked.

Try merging them to a document, not to the printer.
Then see if they are all there. You don't have to print the document.
That might narrow it down to being a transfer to the printer problem, or something more esoteric.
