I don't think Word provides a facility for this. You'd literally have to
create the pages the way you'd want to tape them together. Consider taking a
regular doc to Kinkos and have them blow it up for you.

Some printers offer poster printing as an option. I use the Canon Pixma
ip5000. It can spread a single sheet over 2, 4, 9 or 16 pieces of paper. To
do it, I create a 1-page document. Then, from Word's menu, choose File -
Print - Properties, Page Setup tab. In the Printing Type section, I choose
Poster Printing, which cause s Specify button to appear. I click on that
button to tell the printer how many sheets to use.

It's unlikely you have the same printer I have, but it isn't all that
unlikely that your printer has a similar feature, accessed similarly. Good
luck!

Thanks for the info. At least now I can stop trying to figure it out. It
seems like it would be such a basic command. I guess word is primarily set
up for use in businesses...not schools. JJ

HOORAY! My home printer HP officejet 7100 has a similar feature. Using the
copy function I was able to copy a printed copy of my original onto a poster
1, 2, ,3, or 4 sheets wide. My students will be very happy with their HUGE
classroom constitutuion. Thank you very much for your assistance. JJ

More and more printers have that feature. I have a friend who's a needlework
designer and she uses it to make LARGE copies of antique samplers for her
lectures. (Personally I don't like them because they look pieced together
but...)

And of course you could also mention, JoAnn, that Publisher has native
support for tiling large documents to any printer.
