We are developing a form that prints generated values.  When we use this code _pd.Print(); the report prints perfectly, and when we use this code:

PrintPreviewDialog ppd = new PrintPreviewDialog();
            ppd.Document = _pd;
            ppd.ShowDialog();

the preview is perfect, but only a few lines print when the user click print.

And thats the problem.

Let me make sure I understand this:
   If you print without previewing, it's correct.
   If you preview it's correct.
   If you preview and then print it's wrong.

Can I also assume that the same code runs (the print_page event) regardless of which case you use?  If that's the case, the problem is probably that something isn't being reset correctly in your print_page code, so when you print after previewing the code thinks it's already done.  You probably have variables to track what page you're on or where you are at in the document that persist between pages.  At least one variable like this is not reset correctly.
