"the wizard is unable to create your report"

When I try to create a report in Access 2003, the error message
"the wizard is unable to create your report" comes up. My printer
is a network printer and no local printer is attached. I can get round
this by specifying Adobe Acrobat Distiller as my default local printer,
but this will be irritating for users who want to use a copy of the
database. (Access will not print to the network printer at all, ie you
can't even print a query).

Does anyone know a way of making Access 2003 recognise a network
printer as the default printer so as to allow the Report generator to
work? (All our other Office applications recognize the network printer
as the default).

Grateful thanks in anticipation....

Hi
Will it work if your network drive is mapped to a drive letter?
