Hi

I have created an Access 2002 database with a report.
Everything seems to function fine except after i print a report the page is followed by a page containing the the following error message

PCL XL error
           Warning: IllegalMediasource

Any help appreciated.

Sorry, I meant to give you this other link.  Basically lucas911 is correct you need to reinstall your print drivers.
