access runtime error 3011 on docmd.openreport

P: 4
Access database (file format 2002-2003) generates reports with docmd.openreport but returns 3011 runtime error related to the printer. Switching Windows default printer is a work around but need to find out the cause. Help Desk updated printer driver on server and no runtime error for two months but we are receiving it again on three computers.

I think this might be specific to the actual mdb file and what occurs with references, dll's, etc. rather than the printers themselves. Windows default printer works for Outlook, Word, Notepad, etc. so this is specific to the print preview portion of Access reports and it has happened in print preview of Excel.

Received error recently, switched printer to work, switched back to problem printer without help desk and worked fine......

Could be related to XP conversion too, not sure...but need help.

I would also post this question in the Windows forum as I think it might be more relevant there.
