I cannot open an Access report in "design" mode

For some reason, I cannot open an Access report in "design" mode anymore. This didn't happen before. However, I can open the design mode of the form, query, table in the same database.

Please advise.

This usually happens because the reports cannot find a printer, try changing the default printer to a local printer. The last time this happend to me I installed a dummy printer , namely a Microsoft Office Document Image Writer as default and then I was able to open the reports.
