    the preview in data reports just shows them on screen.

    EDIT: actually it's not more likely if i read the posts carefully, it's just more likely ind.reps. than marksheets which was the recent thought chain of last few posts.

    it's defo got to be the print preview option that you get in excel based data reports, which i find really annoying and always uncheck!
    LOL we are getting well confused but i think its defo something to do with Assessment.. i suggested Marksheets because there is a Print Preview button within Assessment/SIMS itself rather then an external application (such as Excel in this case). You can also export data and print it with marksheets. I think RSoP_Robbers needs to clear this up LOL.

    Sounds like he means the option you have when selecting report output to go straight to print preview, the report then exports into the appropriate office app (Excel in this case) and then goes into Print Preview.

    Personally I'd tell the end user to live with the fact they have to press one more button to get print preview, but then I'm harsh like that

    This is a great example of why it is important to get full info from the user, path, routine etc. Generally the 0000-0000-0000 number is not much help but the text that accompanies it is.

    That's the same error, but it looks like we never fixed the issue. The OP would have found that surely on a search. I think we're struggling with the original description of the problem. What we need is the Windows 7 record the problem feature

    I'm officially retiring from the thread, unless or until there is a clear idea of the problem from the OP.
