How come I get a blank page in my document when I do a save as PDF in Word?

by on May 31, 2012

Q: I am trying to save my Word document as a PDF. No problem, except that I get an extra blank page that is three pages before the last page of the document. I have checked the formatting symbols and everything seems to be OK. I added an extra page in case it was trying to make the number of pages come out right, but the same thing. I used an online PDF maker and got the same blank page. What could be wrong?

    I might suggest trying a different PDF printer to see if the problem continues. There are several choices cutepdf, bullzip pdf, and more. If the problem persists then I might suggest trying to to a repair of office from add remove programs and then try re installing the program if a repair doesn’t work.

    Thanks Iselden,

    The problem first manifest itself when I used my publisher’s PDF service. I then went online and got the same results. I was using Word2007 Home and Student (.docx), and got the same thing when I used the onboard “Save as…PDF.” I then saved the 2007 document to Word 2003 (.doc) and saved as PDF. The result was pristine, so apparently there is some glitch with Word 2007.

    Thanks for the suggestion,

    Michael
