Tables - Certain pages won't print!!

Version: 2008 Operating System: Mac OS X 10.5 (Leopard) Processor: Intel I have a table problem that is driving me crazy!!

Certain pages won't print! I have a long table with two columns, and in certain parts where the cell is long and the text goes on for several pages, the last page won't print correctly. It looks fine on the computer as I work on it, and you can see the page on print preview, but then when I print that page it reprints the text from the start of that column. When you actually select print, on the screen where you can specify which pages, when you look at the pages that won't print properly it shows a preview of the wrong page. But like I said in print preview it displays properly. I tried copying the table to a new document, but it still has the same problem.

Any suggestions?

Tables with cells that go on for several pages, is in my experience,
asking for trouble. Can you break up the cell so that they are smaller
and fit on a single page. better to have many cells/rows on a page.

I once was helping someone who really hated Word because it did not
work. It took me a long to realize they were "typing in tables". At one
point a table row/cell extended over 10 pages. The computer crawled.

Simplify. While one *can* make huge cells, don't do it. Use tables for
tabular presentation of information.
