“Insufficient Memory” During Print Merge
PSS ID Number: Q39313 Article last modified on 11-02-1994
After printing approximately 70 to 90 records during a Microsoft Word version 4.0 Print Merge, the error message:
may appear under the following conditions:
- The printer being used is a Hewlett-Packard (HP) LaserJet.
- The printer driver being used supports downloadable fonts.
- At least some of the text is formatted for a downloadable font.
Record size does not seem to have any bearing on this problem.
Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem with Word Version 4.00. This problem was corrected in Version 5.00.
The following are two workarounds to this problem:
Set the “queued:” field under the Print Options command to Yes before doing the print merge.
In the second workaround, use the following steps:
Download the fonts from a separate document.
Execute the Transfer Clear All command, which frees up memory space.
Run the Print Merge command and answer “N” to the prompt to download fonts.
