Hi good guys,
My printer prints a print report after every print which i do not need as it is a waste to me.
How do i get rid of this.
Its an HP laserjet 1018(black&white)
Thanks very much.

We have those printers and I've never seen a "print report" on any of them, can you advise what the report looks like/shows? It will almost certainly be in the printing preferences (possibly under "advanced")

I suggest you open the properties in the printer settings and check that report (or similar) is not selected.

It could also be that the toner is getting low or the printer has developed a fault.

the printer is a new printer.
3 days old.I have checked the printer properties and dont seem to get it there.
I think it is windows which prints it

I think that you have got an option ticked in Word. You appear to be printing your document properties.
Open Word then go to Tools - Option and then on the Print Tab look under Include with document and see if the Document Properties is checked. If it is uncheck it.

Should have stated that this is for Word 2003 and I am not sure if it is the same for 2007.

Absolutely correct Woolwell - well spotted.

If you are using Word 2007 then you should follow these steps:

Click the Office button and then click Word Options. Word displays the Word Options dialog box.

Click Display at the left side of the dialog box.
Make sure the Document Properties check box is selected.

Click on OK.

Just re-reading my posting, and the second last line should of course read "Make sure the Document Properties check box is NOT selected".
