Operating system version

Windows 7

Description of the issue

I have one database Purchasing, that "Save as PDF" works, and a second database contacts, that this function does not work. In my contacts database I get the hour glass and progress bar and it just hangs,  In the Purchasing database, it works as expected, instantly, no progress bar.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Happens every time.  Both database have been modified from the supplied started solutions, but nothing that should have affected how this function works.

Expected result


Actual result

No PDF, endless wait.

Exact text of any error message(s) that appear

No.  I found some information in the forums that mentioned ver 11 has some issues with a link to a workaround, but the link was broken.
