Is this a shared calendar? If so try disabling the taskpad option via File > Print > Page Setup > Format tab > clear the TaskPad check box > OK. Use the Daily Style print style selected, click OK to print the shared calendar.

Or you can update the permissions - http://support.microsoft.com/kb/912803

Actually, the real solution is to close outlook, go to C:\Documents and Settings\%username%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook and delete the OutlPrnt file and reopen outlook
