  1. You may have been fooled by the Application Server Cache or Browser Cache. Either the screen/printer output or the PDF output comes from the cache. I bet it's the PDF. Put a date of printing (timestamp) in your report header to check that. or 2) Your query could give new (updated) results when it is executed more than once. You can check this by running the report on screen twice in a row and see if the results differ too.
