I've gone into my manuscript and put in the proper header. But when I printed it out on Saturday, none of it printed out???

Did you try closing out of Word, or whatever word processing program you use? Closing your document and reopening it?

Sounds like it just didn't save for some reason. Open you ms and make sure the header is there, then print out a couple of pages to check.  Try changing the font color just to make sure it didn't get set to white.

Will do, and thanks. I've had so many problems with either this computer or WORD. Not sure which it is. Originally with this manuscript and sent it to the requesting agent, I sent it with a loud blue background, and white print, though it looked fine on my computer. Horrified!!!

Sometimes headers/footers will not print because they are beyond the margins of the printable page. Check in Page Preview mode to be sure there are completely there. If they appear there, they should appear in the printed pages.  If they do not, check all your margins and the "gutter"; it may be helpful to switch page views when you do so.
