SQL Reporting Service 2008 Printing Issues

apitech asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-11

On a SQL 2008\Windows Server 2008 (32-bit) box, I have a packing slip that I created in SQL Reporting Services with the Business Intelligence Development Studio.

When I print the report from the SQL 2008 Report Manager web page to Adobe PDF on the server, it prints satisfactorily.

But, when the end user prints to Adobe also from the Report Manager's web page on a Windows 7 workstation (32-bit), it "cuts off".  50% of the report (the right-hand side) does not print.

It is strange that it prints fine on the server and not the workstations.  Both are using the Report Manager internet.  So, I don't understand why the difference.

The issue is not an Adobe one.  This happens, also, if the report is printed to Microsoft Document Imaging also.

Too, if I make changes to the report in terms of margins or whatever on the Studio, those changes show up in Report Manager on the server.  But, those changes are not reflected on the workstation when printing from Report Manager.

Ideas?  Any help is very much appreciated!
