Microsoft Access report check box does not print.

My report has a check box as one of the fields. When I look at the report on my monitor, the check box displays fine, but when I print the report, the check box does not print. When I look at the properties of the check box, I do not have a font property to change.

Any suggestion on what I need to do to get the check box to show when I print?

Thanks for your assistance.

That was it. Slowing down the printer from draft speed to normal speed did the trick. I had actually checked the Expert Exchange library of Qs & As before I submitted the question, but I guess I did not use the correct search words.

Thanks again.
