In my system the access report is open perfectly. But another system is not working. It display the error message as following
The Report name “test” you entered is misspelled or refers to a report that isn’t open or doesn’t exist.

But my report name is correct .... and also exist.... why this error happened?

Check the references on the "error machines".

Open some VBA code (e.g. by pressing [CTRL+G]) and select Tools/References.
Each libraryname starting with "MISSING" must be unchecked and (e.g. microsoft DAO version x.xx) replaced when necessary.

As access doesn't cleanup added libraries, often unnecessary refenreces are present.
Just delete as many as possible without getting an error executing "Debug/compile all modules"

Let your client change the default printer or, when that doesn't work, let the printer driver be removed and reinstalled.

Another option would be to have the client open the report in designmode and to use File/Pagesettings to slightly ajust the settings. When saving the report the current default printer will be saved too.
