Youv'e been informed in another post what the likely cause of this could be:

"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. "

I've repeated it here since you obviously missed it earlier.
