I remember this problem, but can't recall what the culprit was. Are you running under normal or advanced mode? That may have something to do with it. If it's not that, it's because you are trying to print with the UFT editor rather than in Word. Try changing the print options. (let me know if i'm right or wrong, ok?) The other thing you can do is to search this forum for "grayed descendant report" and you may get a better answer.
