MS ACCESS 2003 Subreport print preview(subreport shows) issue versus printing(subreport blank)

Development Environment: MS ACCESS 2003 SP3

I have a subreport embedded in a main access report. When you perform a print preview of the report the subreport displays the correct content for the main report in the viewer.  But, when you print from the viewer the report will not print the content from the subreport.

Process of elimination:
I performed reviews of the datasource for the subreport and the SQL works correctly. So, the data is there for the subreport. Data links are correct for the subreport.  

 If you skip print perview and only print the report the content on the subreport prints properly.

Can any problem solvers out there give me some structured advise on this issue.

Thank you.
