Exclamation Mail merge envelopes are blank when printed

Hi All, hope you can help.
I created a mail merge document (envelopes). Everything on screen looks normal and print command goes to printer, however the envelopes are blank when they go through the printer.


I set up docs in word and excel 2013 using excel.xls and then saved to xlsm. Word doc was set up as C6 envelope. I used address block first and changed to individual merge fields when they didn't properly. I saved and resaved word doc as .docx and .doc but no luck.
I brought files to home laptop & printer and using Word 2016 I have the exact same problem.
When I created the original word doc address was set in a "text" box. I deleted that and tried it "on the page". Still no luck.
I just matched the docs as .docx and xlsx and it's printing.
This surely is not normal. What if I want to work with a macro enabled workbook.
Never any problems with 2003 versions, well not as difficult.

Regards

Are you sure the content isn't formatted as hidden text? Depending on your Word settings, content that is formatted as hidden text can be viewable on screen but unprintable.
