    In Word 2007, When attempting to print and envelope or a label, after
    clicking the print button an error dialog button pops up declaring "the
    number must be between 1 and 31"

    This occurs any time an envelope or label print is attempted, whether or not
    the envelope has been added to the document.

    Please help!

    Recent feedback suggests that this can occur if you have added a
    header/footer to the normal template. In any case renaming the normal
    template normal.dotm to normal.dotm.old should fix it.

    This is a "virgin" install of Word 2007. The Normal template has not been
    changed in any way. Still, I renamed as suggested. Still getting the darned
    message. Safe mode running of Word still produces message.

    Anwering my own post here.

    Renaming my user profile fixed the problem. Deleting the normal template
    did not work, nor did uninstalling and reinstalling.

    Joan,


    Your solution of renaming the user profile was a wonderful idea. I created a new user profile and my problem of printing envelopes was fixed.

    Thank you very much.
