I am sure that many people would offer you advice if you provided a
little more information. As it is it it is very difficult if not
impossible to diagnose your problem.  The following suggestions might

If you are generating pdf files can you open them in adobe reader and
check if you have the 18 pages.   Similarly you should be able to open
dvi files in your dvi viewer.  If you can see all 18 pages in adobe
pdf reader then you will know that your Latex program is working
properly.  If you still have missing pages then it is likely that ther
is something wrong with your Latex file(s) or possible with your
Texniccenter configuration.

Alternatively you might try and download TeXmaker which, I think, is a
bit easier to use than TeXnicenter.

Best Regards
