Access SubReport Visible in Print Preview but will not print.

Hi, I have what appears to be a tough subreport problem. I was sent a database from a frustrated friend that was converted from Access 97 to Access 2000. These reports worked fine in Access 97.
Everything works fine in Access 2000 with the exception of the subreports in two reports. These subreports are in the page header.  They display correctly in print preview but will not print with the main body of the report.  I have looked at the obvious things, but this quite frankly has me stumped.
I do not think this is something that can be readily solved without sending the DB (around 550K zipped).  
If anyone is interested in looking at it and can come up with a solution, it would be very much appreciated. I've run out of ideas.

Thanks, Dan    Email:  pdldavis@yahoo.com

This can often be caused by a printer driver problem.  Here are a couple of things you can try:

1. Change the printers spool format from RAM to EMF (or the other way around).

2. Set the reports "Fast Laser Printing" property to no.

3. Set the reports "Layout for Print" setting to Yes.

4. Update the printer driver or try testing with a simple driver, such as HP LJ III

5. If the printer driver has a setting something like "Print True Type fonts as graphics", make sure it's on.

  Outside of that, it could be a bug.  I just worked on aother problem with A2000 that involved Keep Together.  With the data presented and options that were chosen, a blank page resulted every time.

HTH,
Jim.
