Have you set up the document for page tile printing? Go to the View menu and turn on Show Page Tiles. How many page tiles are displayed?
I was just doing the setup, so there are only two pages, and they appear to be tiled correctly, as there
is a dashed line running between them.
I followed the instructions on http://kb2.adobe.com/cps/329/329648.html until it gets to the select the multi page tiling button, which I cannot do, because it is grayed out.
Any other thoughts?
Zoom out so that you can see the full frames of all the page tiles. Is there more than one tile? There should numbers showing in the lower left corner of each.
So I don't see any numbers anywhere on the
page, just some light grey marks. _| on the top left |_
on the top right and the inverse on the bottom.

File>Print>Setup pane. Is Tiling set to either Tile Full Pages or Tile Imageable Areas?
It is currently set to Single full page.
There's your problem. You only have one tile. The document is not set up for tile printing.
Page Tiling is a print setting. It tells the printer to print the document in tiles that are the size of your supposed media (the size of the sheets you ostensibly have loaded in the printer).
Just for clarity do this:
1. Assume you want to build a document that will export as a PDF with 16 vertical letter-size pages. File>New.
2. In Document setup, set the height to 11" and width to 8.5". But then key in "*2" after the 11 and key in "*8" after the 8.5. Click outside the field and you'll see the Artboard size change to 22" x 68". Click OK.
3. View>Show Page Tiling. You'll only see one page tile.
4. File>Print>General pane. Select Adobe PDF as the "printer". Set Media size to Custom, portrait, width 8.5", height 11".
5. Click Setup to switch to the Setup pane. Select Tile Full Pages from the Tiling popup. Click Done.
You'll now see a 22" x 68" Artboard with 16 numbered Page Tiles. If you Save A Copy as PDF, you'll have the option to Save Tiles as Separate Pages.
Thanks a bunch!
That was what I needed to get it to set up properly!
