Word does not Print page range, only full document 2021

Hi, I have Office 365 2021 Emprersarial, more than a week ago I have problems with printing some documents from My PC, it happens that if I send the entire document to print, it prints perfectly, but if I send a range of pages to print or a specific page of that same document as it does not print or get stuck in the print queue, it is as if it were not sent to print.
Other word files print perfectly by ranges and complete but only some word documents are those that give this problem, I also print by ranges from PDF or Excel etc without difficulty, the most worrying thing is that more and more word documents with this problem appear to me and they are files created previously and that did not present this difficulty, it is also happening to other co-workers with this same office 365,

I appreciate in advance any kind of help or guidance. Thanks!!

    Hi @Reinier Arbelo ,
    Welcome to Q&A forum!

    Are there any error messages when this issue occured? If so, please describe it in detail or share a screenshot with us.

    it is also happening to other co-workers with this same office 365

    < Are you using the same printer? Are the problematic Word documents the same?

    Consider that only some Word files have this issue. Please confirm the following information with us and try the troubleshooting steps:

    1. First of all, it is recommended that you check whether the page number settings in the document are correct.
      This issue occurs if the page number does not match the number of pages for custom printing. It is recommended to generate consecutive page numbers.
    2. What is the format of the file? Please save it in another format (such as .xls) to check.
    3. Where do you save these files? Please save it locally and change the path.
    4. Copy the file in question to another computer and try to print.

    In addition, from the perspective of the printer, I suggest:

    1. Disconnect and reconnect the printer.
    2. Update the printer driver and restart the printer.
    3. If conditions permit, please try to change a printer to check this issue.

    If the above do not work, please try to repair Office.
    Any updates, please let me know.

    Hmm, maybe the bug is back. I created a simple test document and added an Odd Page section break to create a second section. Printing section 2 prints the blank filler page (= page 2) and the page in the new section (= page 3), so something is going on.

    EDIT: Apparently, the specific issue mentioned in the paragraph above is an older bug. It is related to how Word treats "filler" pages that will be inserted, if required, to ensure that an odd page is always a right hand page (and, similarly, to ensure that an even page is always a left hand page). The bug is unlikely to be fixed.

    Had the same issue. Solved it very easy - just rebuild the sequence number of pages. You can see used page numbers in left navigate panel. In my case pages were begging from 114 page and I can easily print needed page by entering its number (114 or 115 for example). Other suggested variants didn’t work for me. Thanks vikiji-msft for the wright way of troubleshooting.

    same problem with me, and indeed, the recommended action: set 'update fields' to 'on' did solve the problem.
    still wondering why it occurred so suddenly, in the first place.
