Printing Odd or Even Pages

Please Note: This article is written for users of the following Microsoft Word versions: 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. If you are using a later version (Word 2007 or later), this tip may not work for you. For a version of this tip written specifically for later versions of Word, click here: Printing Odd or Even Pages.

There may be many times that you need to print either odd or even pages in a print job. For instance, you may want to put your pages through the printer twice so you can print on both sides. This is easy to do in Word by following these steps:

  1. Choose Print from the File menu. Word displays the Print dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Print dialog box.

  3. Adjust the printing settings as desired.
  4. Using the Print drop-down list at the bottom of the dialog box, choose either Odd Pages or Even Pages, as desired. (Make sure you use the Print drop-down list, not the Print What drop-down list.)
  5. Click on OK. Your document is printed.

Thanks Allen. I needed to print out a couple of copies of a 10 page document in a hurry, and it was frustrating that Word 2010 had made everything different, quite unnecessarily. I've had it, and Windows 7, along with a new PC for the best part of 6 months now, and still prefer Windows XP and the older Word.

Richard,

All you need to do is look at the correct tip. This one (as it says) is for the older menu-based version of the program. For the newer, ribbon-based versions (2007 and 2010), click the link at the end of this tip.

It's no good telling me how I used to do it. I now have Word 2010 and wish I didn't. How do I do odd (or even) pages only now?

Thank you, I didn't realize it was that easy because I was stuck on the page range option!

Yes this is how I have always done it.
Sadly I now have Word 2010 it's a bit more of a search
