Printing Summary Information

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated May 6, 2017)

In other issues of WordTips you learned that Word allows you to maintain summary information for your documents along with the properties it automatically maintains. If you want to print this information, you can do so quite easily:

  1. Select Print from the File menu. This displays the Print dialog box.
  2. Using the Print What drop-down list, select Document Properties.
  3. Click on OK.

WordTips is your source for cost-effective Microsoft Word training. (Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing software in the world.) This tip (1672) applies to Microsoft Word 97, 2000, 2002, and 2003. You can find a version of this tip for the ribbon interface of Word (Word 2007 and later) here: Printing Summary Information.
