To print a report using Internet Explorer, use the print icon at the top of the report toolbar:

The page will refresh. Try clicking the print icon again. Now you will see a popup window that asks if you want to install the software from Microsoft.

Click “Install.” When you try the print icon, it will print the entire report.

If using an Alternative Browser –  Firefox, Google Chrome or Apple Safari:

Select Acrobat (PDF) file from the Export Dialog, click Export and print the file.

The report will open in an Acrobat viewer window. Click the Acrobat print button to print the document.
