Bad or missing data was encountered while loading the report – Management Reporter

Came across this one yesterday. Absolutely useless error message! Went around the houses trying to resolve – re-adding users, changing their windows security, reinstall, everything I could think of. What I found by pure chance is that if you add a new font format type to your install of MR – call it anything [I called mine ‘test’] – the error goes away and you can successfully print reports.
[Click format on the MR menu bar]. I found it because we had two separate installs with the same issue. One also needed a new font added, which I did, and then I went back to the resolve the original error, and it was solved. Only thing I did was add a font format – tried it on the other install, and bingo!

Go figure that one out!
