Great Plains 10 and printing

I am in the process of switching users over from citrix to a windows 2008 terminal server.  A couple of my users after switching them are having problems with there printing.  What is happening is that when they are in Great Plains 10 and try and print a report or feed orders (feed mill manager), the printout is getting cut off on the left hand side (about 1/2 and inch).  I have tried different print drivers (no difference) and printing from other programs is fine.

What I don't understand is how the reports will print fine in great plains via citrix, but once they are on the 2008 ts the printouts are messed up.  

Other info, the users are all running xp pro sp3 with .net 3.5 and connect by using an rdp connection for great plains.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Try downloading the updated Terminal Services Client 6.1 onto one of the workstations and try printing again.

Post back your results.

Are they printing to a printer setup on the TS, or one in the RDP session?

Does the same issue occur if you print to a printer setup on the TS itself?

I haven't tried that, but there are no printers setup on the TS.

I setup a network printer in our office and got one of the remote users to try printing a report from GP to the networked printer on the TS.  The printout was perfectly fine.  The printers however where not the same.  The user was using an Okidata B410D and the network printer was a Xerox Workcentre Pro 55.

Any other suggestions to try?

So when using Citrix and printing to the Okidata B410D it used to print correctly?

Some printers are not compatible with GP.

I would suggest all users print to the Xerox.   Is this a possibility?  Or are some users remote and need to print to a local printer?

The one user never tried printing to the Okidata when using Citrix.  It is not possible to print to the Xerox as all of the users in question are remote and need to print locally.  They do have other HP printers that work perfectly fine.

Is there a list of printers compatible with GP?  I did find one that was dated in 2007, but just wondering if there is one that is more up-to-date?
