Text boxes not printing...in Word 2007

When placing a text box over an image - it shows in the Word document. But 
when printing, it either does not print the text at all or only prints a few 
characters. I'm running Word 2007. 

Thank You Constance

Controlling printed records when report bound to multiple tables

Access 2007 combobox will not "Auto expand"
I have a database converted from access 2003 to 2007. Now ALL comboxes will not allow the "autoexpand" functionality.

Open 2003 files with 2007
Hello all, I just upgraded my Office 2003 with Office 2007 on an EP Pro machine. The only snaffoo I find(so far..) is with Excel 2007.

Printing in reverse order
I have printed out nearly 500 letters to be mailed out using mailmerge and publisher. I would like to not run them through the printer again and print address info on the reverse side so they can be run through a folding machine and mailed out. PROBLEM: the list and the pages are in reverse order and since I merged personal info on one side, the address side must correspond. Can publisher print out in reverse? I have tried copies from 500 - 1 but it still print from 1 - 500. The original list was not sorted in any manner, it was exported from a database. Suggestions please... TIA R...

Outlook 2007 Outlook.exe deleting itself

If I install PS2007 onto a 2 server configuration (WFE/App and DB), I need one PS2007 server licence. That's OK. If I add a separate WFE server, do I need to add another PS2007 server licence? The Project Server application will not change where it runs. I think I might need an additional licence.

Counting Lines of Text in TextBox
In a form, I have a text box in which memo text wraps. Is there any code that can count the number of lines of text that display in the textbox? My only workaround at this point is to use a non-proportional font like Courier, count the characters and divide by the number of characters that a line might contain. Unfortunately, this approach only gives me a rough estimate of the number of lines. And I'm stuck with Courier when I prefer Arial. Is there another way to count lines of text? Thanks. Jim Why?
