The contact report defaults to not printing the contact record if all the sub-reports (activities, notes, history, opportunity) are empty. On a newly inserted contact record, they would be empty. You can edit the contact report by going to Reports | Edit Template and opening the Contact report. Then display the preferences dialog if not already showing by pressing F4. Then click on the Detail section and change the Hide on Empty Subreport property to No.

This doesn't work for the Company Reports. I change the hiddens to NO and save the report and they have returned to YES when I open them again. I even tried saving as a new report and starting from scratch. What's up with this?
After much searching on the web, I found your coments about changing the default setting hidden in the contact sub reports to "no." I tried to do this with the Company Comprehensive report and it is not saving my settings. Please, please, please help. I don't understand why the reports would be designed this way so that you can't see a report on any new companies that you enter.
