    Printing labels differences from Word 2003 and Word 2010.

    Hi All

    We have just recently upgraded some of our office machines from Office 2003 to Office 2010 and some of our users who print labels are having some difficulties which I hoping someone can help me on.

    In Word 2003, users created a custom label template and when printing this of on multiple sheets it was fine, the labels would be in the correct place and would print fine.

    Since Word 2010 install, users attempt to create an identical template based on the figures that they inputted when using Word 2003 and it seems to print of the first page fine, its all in line and correct but if the labels are on more than one page, when these are printed off they slowly begin going out of alignment the more pages that are printed.

    When we tried to print on 2 different sets of printers we had the same problem so I am sure the problems isn't printer related but more likely a setting in Word or the way the pages or labels have been setup.

    Has anyone seen symptons similar to this?

    If anyone could advise it would be most appreciated.

    Thanks
