Text won't print without something being shaded

I'm trying to print from Word 97, and everything prints OK only if something
on the page is shaded. If I take the shading off, nothing prints, unless I
have a table on the page, then the table borders print, but no text.

I've tried Clear shading and that produces the same result as no shading
(which is a blank page), but even the lightest gray shading on one thing
allows the whole page to print.

Any ideas?

Thanks,
Randy

Just a guess, but make sure that the colour of the font is set to Automatic.

Thanks for the idea. It was set to Auto, I changed some text to black,
printed, no change. Then to red, again just some text, and all the text
printed, both the red and the original Auto/black. Changed the red text back
to Auto and no text printed.

I suppose I have a work around, shade something or use a different color,
but I'd still like to find what's causing this.
