You probably have different color management setups in each program. One is doing black point compensation, the other isnt. One is using a generic CMYK model, the other is using Euro...etc etc. Check to make sure both are the same.

Those options are set in the Color Settings dialog. You can either turn everything OFF or you can mess with the color management. If youre using windows just turn it off. If youre on a Mac you can use your ColorSync profiles to define the working space. I usually leave the CMYK profiles at generic until i know what printer I'm going to use. Black point compensation is on and I use a Relative Colorimetric rendering intent. As long as both the programs match the colors should look the same in each.

When you go to print it out you'll get what you get. Unless you want to get into real color management but that involves creating profiles for your printer, monitor, etc.
