Graphs in Excel 2007 will not print

Our company just upgraded to Office 2007 from Office 2003.  A spreadsheet with graphs that was created in Excel 2003 will not print the workbook with the graph on it.  The other workbooks with the data print fine.

Open the same spreadsheet in 2003 and all pages print fine.

We tried saving the .xls and a .xlsx and not only did the file get smaller, the graphs were not visible at all.

No error messages ever come up.

Any suggestion are great.

Thanks

Is it possible the graphics are shut off in the 2007 Excel workbook?

Click the Office button >> Excel Options >> Advanced options >> Display Options for this Workbook >> 
Select the Show All Button.

No, graphics are on.  We are adding patches and service packs for Office 2007.  We'll see how that goes.  Any other ideas?

Installation of SP2 for Office 2007 corrected this and a few other problems.  Office seems to have taken 2 steps forward and 3 steps back with 2007.  Performance and flexibility were sacrificed while accessibility and capacity were increased.  One thing that heavy users of Excel hate to hear is that he new version is slower and is quirky on previous version translation and that have an installtion of Excel 2003 handy is a good idea.  Does not leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling.
