Default merge document prints blank pages even from preview

I have created a merge document and when I go to print it, it spits out blank
pages. I have re-created the document, rebooted and tried printing from the
merge document, from the completed merged file and from the print preview in
both. Help.

Do you see the text in Print Preview? If so, it would seem like an issue
with the printer. Get hold of one of the free PDF Printers (Primo PDF is
one) and print the document to a .pdf file and see if the text appears.

Or maybe the text is formatted as 'hidden' - and, although hidden text display might be 'on', hidden text printing is 'off'.

Well, I have tried printing to 5 different printers in the office and even to
our "filecabinet" and they all come out blank.
