Well, those are EXACTLY how I'm doing it and unless the Sentdate is null
in the database I get a blank form with all the lines and return address
and everything that appears on every invoice, but the data that should be
pulled from the SQL database is not there.
I've tried printing from the Invoice tab and from the history tab from
MBR. Both give EXACTLY the same results.

Pop open ISQL, change invoices.sentdate=(null) and suddenly you get data
when you print. Set invoices.sentdate to any date and no data.

I'm using 2.1.11, if it matters.
