Default How should I save a document that is just one big banner page to .

I want to print a 17" x NN" page. I don't have such a printer so I want to
save my Word file to take to an office service company that can print it.
However, when I configure the Word document, the Word program won't show me
print preview because the program assumes I want to use my local printer and
the program displays a message saying that "the margins are outside the
printable area".

How do others handle this?

Install a printer driver for the printer that will print the document and
set that for your document. My recollection, though, is Word is still not
going to allow you an unlimited size page. There are a number of programs
out there for printing banners, but Word isn't one of them.

Word will *only* create pages up to 22" square and even then only if the
current printer driver is capable of printing such a size. There is no way
to make Word create continuous banner documents. Use Publisher or one of the
banner utilities you can find by searching the internet.
