Some common reasons:

Corrupt report
Invalid or missing printer
No Default Printer specified, or Default printer is not a valid printer (i.e. a PDF printer, for example)
Corrupt database
Bad install of Access

First thing I'd suspect would be a corrupt report. If possible, try a Decompile. Click Start - Run and type this:

msaccess.exe "full path to your database" /decompile

If that completes, open Access and do a Compact & Repair (Office button - Manage).

If that doesn't work, you may need to delete the report and import it from a known good backup copy.

jadmin,

<report not enough memory to update display, any ideas?>
Sure, ...as the error states...
    "not enough memory to update display"

How much *Available* memory do you have?
The would be the first thing I would check.

How big is this database?
Is it nearing the 2GB Limit?

Please remember that you did not post *any* details on your database, thus forcing us to guess at the dozens of things that might be causing this.

Does this happen on all databases?
On all Reports?
On all machines?
For all users?

Again you need to post more than just a one sentence question to get a useful response...
