    When you completed your DD Form 2492 - Report of Medical History online and then submitted it to print it out to take it with you, were your "yes" and "no" responses to each of the questions showing on the form? Or did you manually have to check the appropriate boxes after you printed it out?

    As I recall the yes and no were recorded on the form and the yes responses prompted additional forms for allergy and orthopedic.

    NO, the first few times we printed it, the boxes on the first page were not checked. I couldn't figure out why, so I checked them off on the form myself (everything else printed was ok). However, before DS left to go to his exam a few days later, he tried once more and got it to print correctly. I don't know what he did (if anything), so if you still have problems by tomorrow, PM me and I will ask him. I honestly just think it was a fluke in the system that particular day.

    Thank you we figured it out. For some reason when we used Chrome, it would not print out the "X's" on the form and it printed out the wrong Date of Birth on one of the forms. We finally switched to Internet Explorer and it printed out correctly. Very strange......

    Great, glad you got it figured out! Seems Chrome maybe the common problem here. I always use Chrome and couldn't get it to print; DS always uses Firefox and got it to print correctly. I didn't see the correlation back then. :rolleyes:

    Not really. Browsers are notorious for being different from a programming perspective. I'm confident this particular aspect is implemented in Javascript which is even more notorious for this. Whenever you have a problem like this, or any other problem for that matter, the first thing to try is switching browsers.
