We have never been able to duplicate this

customers. Diagnostics showed that all drawing commands are being

There is a suitable workaround for this
problem. Simply add the report to the workbook and print the report
from the Workbook. This does not seem to cause the problem. If
this does not solve the problem, try adding a dummy report (any kind of
one page report) to the workbook in front of the report you wish to
print. Then print both reports. Finally, you could export the
reports to Rich Text Format (RTF) and print them from Microsoft Word.
Refer to ChemStat online help topics for
the workbook and for exporting to RTF for more information.
