I figured out the problem.
Open Word -
>tools>options>print tab>
the second area that says " Include With Document"--the only box that should be checked is "Drawing Objects". All other boxes should NOT be checked.
In my case, another box was checked and thats why the document printed variuos crap instead of the actual document.

Thanks to all that helped.
You know Thee Ox appreciates all your help.

Later,
Thee
