SYMPTOMS

When you are printing to a plotter from Microsoft Word, you may want to print to a page larger than 22 inches by 22 inches (many plotters support 24 inch or wider paper sizes). Sizes larger than 22 inches are not supported by Word.

When you click Page Setup on the File menu in Word 6.0 and later, or click Page Setup on the Format menu in Word version 2.0 for Windows, Word will not let you use the spin controls to set either the height or width larger than 22 inches. If you type a size larger than 22 inches into either the Height or Width box, and then click the OK button, you will get an error stating:

Word 6.0 and Later

The measurement must be between .1" and 22"

Word 2.0

The measurement must be between 0" and 22".
The only way Word will let you choose the OK button to exit Page Setup is to go back and set the size to a number between .1" and 22" in Word for Windows 6.0 and later or between 0" and 22" in Word for Windows 2.0.

CAUSE

The maximum page size of a document in Word is 22 inches by 22 inches. Even though some Windows printer drivers will support larger page sizes, Word is limited to 22 inches by 22 inches.
