I have been forced to convert a 100 page Framemaker document to a MS Word document. The converted document looked ok onscreen, but when I went to print it, received "Error no bookmark messages" in several places in the document. These-- I believe-- were due to problems with the automatic x-references in Framemaker being converted to Word. I went back in and took out all automatic cross references, and retyped in by hand. That seemed to fix it on my original printer, but I still am having document problems as I try to print out on another printer (Lexmark 500 series initially, Lexmark 3200 later).

The error bookmark messages are gone when I print, but the document repeats pages several places in the document as well as fouling up the pagination in the footers.

Does anyone know how to troubleshoot this problem?

I would greatly appreciate some assistance on this.
