Printing MS ACCESS 2003 reports to ADOBE PDF -- Acrobat Distiller has encountered a problem and needs to close...
instruction at "0x0045c9e5" referenced memory at "0x0204eb6c".  the memory could not be read.  Click to terminate...

New lap top, XP, Acrobat 7.0, (everything new)

Each page of report is a customized letter with four fonts, boxes, and an image.  Even if I print one page or select to print a single
page I get the above error message.  (Actual report run could be over 1,000 pages) Distiller seems to be working fine in Word.

What can I do to fix printing.

Just curious, do you HAVE to use Distiller? Can you not have it print to Adobe PDF?

or is that what you are trying. I am trying to mimic your issue on the machine I am on and I unfortunately do not have distiller as a choice, just Adobe PDF.

Have you checked for the latest patches for acrobat  (sounds like an acrobat  generates message and issue)

I'd do what RgGray3 suggests

It does sound like drivers to me, so check the adobe site for latest updates. It may have something to do with fonts perhaps. The font cache can get corrupted at times but this really is more of a MAC issue.

Might also be worth checking that u have the latest updates from MS

Have u tried to uninstall and reinstall Adobe? hopefully it overwrites a corrupt driver

It honestly is hard to provide a resolution when the maker of the question will not answer our original questions back to him.
Most likely like everyone has said is a driver issue, which could be resolved with an uninstallation... downloading a fresh copy of the adobe or reinstalling it from a CD.

I tried all driver solutions.  Laptop is a new tablet PC.  Reports have several fields which call functions to change content on the fly--not a problem during printing.  

Solved problem by printing shorter reports, and switching resolution to 640, which is a pain, but seems to work for the time being.
