I have added in my report a child form that has some unbound textbox. The child form will use the dvlook function to fill the unbound textboxes and everything works perfectly fine.
In the screen, the report shows the information and also the information is shown in the print preview, but when I print the report all the unbound textboxes appear empty.
Does someone have an idea what is happening and how can I solve it.

I attached the screenshot the textbox that are in pink and purple are the unbound textboxes.

Hi. Print Preview was supposed to display what the printer output should be. Not sure why you're getting a different result. We may have to see it to find out why.

not sure but you may try using a Dummy Query as the Recordsource for the Child subform
and bind your Unbound textbox to the query's field.

your dummy recordsource:

select Top 1 dlookup("field", "table", "conditionHere") As Field1,
dlookup("field1", "table", "conditionHere") As Fiel2
from aRealTableNameHere;
