When I print a database diagram directly, I get the top left corner obsrured on the printout by what looks like an empty popup box. This means the columns names are blanked out for the first 5-6 rows. I have tried this with a variety of printers and the effectis the same on all. The problem appears to be specific to SQL2005 as one of the servers has both SQL2000 and SQL2005. The disagrams from the SQL2000 print perfectly, the ones from SQL2005 do not.
SQL2005 has been patched to SP2.
I have circumvented the problem by writing an SSRS package to print the output of a stored procedure that emulates the database diagram. Also there is an option in SQL2005 database diagrams to get an image of the diagram. I have printed this in Word and it prints flawlessly that way.
