.GIF image does not print in Access 2010

I have a report that has a linked image of a "certificate of death" as a background (C:\CenturyIII\NCCOD2012.gif). When the report prints only the data prints but not the image. It is on the report as a "picture", "Stretched", "Linked","Center", Backstyle =  normal.

This works fine in Access 2003, Access 2007, but only works intermittently on Access 2010.
Sometimes it prints fine showing the form in the background, then the next time it will print only the data.

Have tried .GIF, .BMP, .Jpg  even tried embedding the form in the report.

Got to get it working in 2010.

The problem appeared to be in conjunction with Service pack 1 for access 2010. Kept researching the question and found the Access 2010 hot fix. Applied the Service pack and the hotfix,  it fixed several problems, including the image print problem and the record source problem as well.
