Printing problems with Flash actionscript 3.0 application

I am utilizing the following code to print the contents of my flash application after the user clicks the print button, the printer dialogue screen comes up and you select ok, but nothing prints, it doesn't even show any documents pending. Ive tried printing from other applications and there is no problems. Please advise.
 
function printContent(event: MouseEvent):void
{
var printContent = overallTrainingCost_txt.text + returnedDistance_txt.text + returnedTime_txt.text
var pageSprite: Sprite = new Sprite;
var printJob:PrintJob = new PrintJob();
   if (printJob.start()) 
   
if (printJob.start()) {

     if (printContent.width>printJob.pageWidth) {
         printContent.width = printJob.pageWidth;
		 printContent.wordWrap = true;
		 addChild (pageSprite);
		 pageSprite.addChild(printContent);
		 printContent.addPage(pageSprite);
		 
		 }
   
     printJob.send();
	 removeChild (pageSprite);
   }
}

I cannot see where in your code you are concatinating string.
Ok, try my solution and let me know if works for you or not

var textArea:TextField = new TextField();
textArea.multiline = true;
textArea.wordWrap = true;
textArea.text = overallTrainingCost_txt.text + returnedDistance_txt.text + returnedTime_txt.text;

var pageSprite: Sprite = new Sprite;
pageSprite.addChild(textArea);

var printJob:PrintJob = new PrintJob();  
if (printJob.start()) {
      textArea.width = printJob.pageWidth;
      textArea.height = printJob.pageHeight;
      printJob.addPage(pageSprite);
    printJob.send();
}
