SQL Error

I am having a new problem that is preventing me from performing normal
operations. This problem started on Monday, while out of town and I must
now get it fixed as tomorrow is the MAJOR billing day of the month.

Everytime I try to print out all the invoices that have not been sent I
get a generic SQL Server Error. I notice that the screen that preloads the
Crystal Reports is loaded and about half the normal time before the actual
invoices appear is when the error pops up.

I have examined the SQL Error logs in the Enterprise manager and get the
following errors:
Error 1105:, Severity 17, State 1
Can't allocate space for object '-964' in database 'tempdb' because the
'system' segment is full. If you ran out of space in Syslogs, dump the
transaction log. Otherwise use ALTER DATABASE or sp_extendsegment to
increase the size of the segment.

Now by tempdb is in ram, I examine the database and it is 32mb in size
with 31.24 free, I have truncated the database, and still this happens. I
can not increase the size because it is in ram, and will not allow me to
modify the size. Further I do not think it should be necessary to do so
with all the free space.

I have to be able to print out the batches of invoices as today and
tomorrow I have over 4500 invoices to print. If I have to select each one
1 at a time that will take forever.
