    I recently upgraded to XP and I'm running Access 2003. On my reports page,
    when I pick a report and select my command button to print preview the
    report, it does nothing (it doesn't print either). It's as if the command
    button is disabled. What can I do to fix the problem?

    This usually indicates a problem with the printer driver.

    Try installing another printer, or choosing a completely different one as
    the default. If that works, there is an issue with the way the printer is
    installed.

    (It's not uncommon in Access 2003 with network printers, even where the
    printer works with other software.)

    Allen,

    Would the driver have an effect even if I'm only print previewing the
    report? It won't even allow me to view it in print preview. I also
    discovered that when I'm in the screen selecting
    tables/queries/forms/reports/macros and go to reports, I can't even view any
    reports in design view. When I select a report and click design it does
    nothing.

    Yes. I should have explained that Access uses the metrics from the printer
    driver to calculate the report. If you have no printer installed, or Access
    thinks there is no printer, or if the printer is invalid in some way, you
    may not be able to preview the report at all.
