Problems with report-printing

Last week I transferred my Hypercard Adressbook successfull to RunRev
(Mac OSX, 10.2.8, Rev. 2.1.2).
Totay I tried to script the printJob.
I read the helpful Mail of Jan Schenkel about using the report-builder
and studied the docs.
I made a report with some fields, linked to my Data-stack and found,
that after setting in the report inspector all colors of each
report-field to white (except the text color), there remains a thin
black line on top of each field, which also appears in the printing.
Trying to print by pressing the print-button in the report-builder
sometimes there is no printout, but after closing the stack and
restarting it the print succeeded and showed all prints one after
In my stack, which consists of a main stack (as splash), a data stack
and the report-stack (MyReport), I made a print-button in the
data-stack with the following script:
open stack "MyReport"
hide stack "MyReport"
if it is cancel then exit to top -- Cancel doesn´t work!
send "RevPrintReport" to stack "MyReport"
This script sometiomes works, sometimes not. What did I wrong?
What can I do so that the user in the print-dialog can stop the
printing, if she Cancels the dialog. After "answer printer" the
variable "it" is "Cancel", but the "exit to top" doesn´t work.
And a last question:
As I want to use some slightly different reports:
How can I duplicate the reportstack?
Thank you very much
