I am using Infomaker 5.0.02 and I am having problems printing a
nested report. I have a report that has 5 levels of nesting. When I go
to view the report the information comes in 85% correct. A few times
the master primary key will print but the nested information does not
come through at all. This happens for one out of every 10 records.
However, when I try to print the report, as soon as I select a
printer all of the nested data immediately gets deleted from the
screen. Only the first page of the report is correct, but even that
page gets erased when I scroll up or down. Could someone explain what
is happening and if there is anyway to work around it.

Nested reports are in print preview by default. (blue line around
report). Often this behavior happens when there is no printer driver or
a bad printer driver. When we try to put the datawindow into print
preview, we need driver info to do so.
