SYMPTOMS

When you prepare a fax using the Microsoft Word Fax Wizard, you may be prompted repeatedly for the recipient's fax number.

220329 WD2000: Fax Wizard and Outlook Request the Fax Number Repeatedly


WORKAROUND

To work around this problem, use one of the following methods that best suits your needs:

Method 1: Turn Off the Fax Cover Sheet Option in the Fax Wizard

This produces a single item to fax from the Fax Wizard. Your fax software then provides the only cover sheet; however, your fax software may still prompt for the recipient's fax number.

  1. To start the Fax Wizard:
    • On the File menu, point to Send To, and then click Fax Recipient.


-or-

    • Click New on the File menu, click the Letters & Faxes tab, and double-click the Fax Wizard.
  1. When you are in the Fax Wizard and see the following prompt: Which document do you want to send?, select the Without a cover sheet check box.
  2. Complete the remaining steps in the Fax Wizard.

Method 2: Print with Your Fax Software Instead of the Word Fax Wizard

This method produces a single item to fax and requires the recipient's information only once in the process:

  1. Open or create a document to send to a recipient in Word.
  2. On the File menu, click Print.
  3. Change the printer Name box to your fax software printer driver, and click OK to print.
  4. When a new Untitled - Fax (Plain Text) or similar message appears, select a contact from the Address Book for the To box, or type a recipient's fax number using the following syntax:

    FAX@#####

    where ##### is the fax phone number of the recipient.

  5. Click Send to begin sending the fax.
