Crystal Report not printed in VB

I'm developing with VB and Crystal Report. There are two projects, one is the VB exe, another is a DLL responsible for generating Crystal Report.

Everything works fine until a few days before, some of the Crystal Reports can't be printed. After a report is generated and displayed, I click 'Printer' button to send it to printer but nothing happened. No print job is sent to printer. One of the symptoms is the report goes larger, the fonts become larger than normal.

I feel so confused with this since some of them works fine but some doesn't.

Can anyone help me to solve this problem?

PS: Data is retrieved by stored procedure from SQL Server 7.

It was found that the crystal report source was corrupted. I got the old source from VSS and re-complie and that works. Anyway, thanks for your help.
