    Print & Print Preview Differ

    Hi All,

    I have created a new report which displays data from a cbo box selection. When I print preview it is perfect - it displays the name of the company from the cbo box and all the relevant data, when I then print to pdf or hardcopy the company name is lost and it displays "#Name?".

    Report was created in A97 and now used in A2010.

    Any ideas on how to fix would be welcome...

    It sounds like you're closing the form with the combo. It needs to be open when the report prints.

    I banged my head against that particular issue in the past.
