Default netwoked printer wont print from Word

I've just networked our printer with my computer. Previously it was only run through my wife's comp. I can now access it and print from my own machine , but with one notable exception. I cannot print anything from Microsoft Word. The printer responds to the print command, but just cycles through a blank sheet of paper. As I can print from all other sources, I don't believe it is a networking or printer problem. I'm using office 2003. Anyone got any ideas?

Are you sure you have the correct drivers?

For printing on the network, you have to turn on printing sharing. Other than that, I am not sure. I did it myself, and I had no problem.
