I hope someone on this list can help me -- I've got a mission-critical
project, and ran into a glitch that I didn't expect.

I have a Word 97 document that consists entirely of tables -- it was
generated by performing a merge operation. Behind the table, there
needs to be a graphic. Right now, I'm handling this by putting the
graphic on the header page. After some initial difficulties (I had to
turn off background printing, autosave, and printer spooling), the
document prints just fine. But it prints _very_ slowly -- about three
minutes per page. Since I have about 350 pages to print and I need
this tomorrow, I'm running out of time.

Is there any way to download the graphic to the printer and make it
resident, so that it prints on every page, without having to send the
graphic to the printer every page (I assume that's what's making it
print so slowly)?

I'm running Windows 95, and I'm printing to an HP 4MP, using the
PostScript driver. Taking the document out of Word isn't really an
option at this point, unless someone _knows_ that there'll be a major
improvement with something else.

I'd appreciate any help anyone can provide.
