When I print a Database Diagram (in SQL Server 2005),
the first 5 columns for the Column Name don't show:
instead a light grey color is displayed instead of the names.
Why is it doing this?
I have brand new HP laser printer.

You might want to go to File -->Page Setup and check your printer setup first.  The diagram might be place outside the printing area.

it prints the whole table, but it "greys out" the first few columns of each table
as described above.

It only does this when I include "Data Type" with
the "Column Name" columns.
If I just have the "Column Name", it prints ok.
