Unanswered: MS Access 2000 report object not funtioning in MS Access 2003
Recently transitioned from a pc to laptop, the new laptop has MS Access version 2003. I was able to transfer files without a problem. However a Access 2000 file that was transferred is not able to print a report object. I can open the tables and run the queries fine. But when I try to print a report I can't even get the window date prompt to show up.
I have gone so far as to run a copy of the file on a co-workers PC which is running MS access 2003 and it works fine.
Any suggestions on what maybe the cause of this. I have searched through the MSDN and the MS Access help pages with no resolution. Please help.
Besides that, maybe the 2003 installation isn't complete or is corrupted... consider re-installing Access 2003 on the laptop.
I say this since you have successfully run it on another machine (or two) with 2003 and it works fine. Therefore, it's reasonable to conclude that it's NOT a compatibility problem, but one that exists on that laptop alone.
We did have a local printer set as the default. So I assumed that wasn't the issue, but get this we switched the default printer to a network printer and then the reports would generate...strange! It's is supposed to work vice versa as well....see this forum: http://p2p.wrox.com/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=30165
thanks for all the assistance have a great New Year!
