Use Go to Related Records [show only related, "yourrelationship"] and print the resultant set from its own file.

I don't have one offhand, but if you dig through the Relationships forum, you're bound to find several working examples.

I have found that printing portals can be a major headache! Unless you know what the maximum number of entries are going to be in the portal, it's darn near impossible!

I prefer to use portals as information only. If I need to print that info, I create a "hidden" layout that shows the same info in List View, then print that layout. List view will print only the needed pages.

If you absolutely need to print the portal, the only good way I've found is to create several "hidden print" layouts that have the same portal. The 1st is if the portal contains 1-X amount of rows (one page long). The 2nd will contain 1-X rows spanning two pages, a third that spans three pages, and so on. The porblem with this is that you have to set a maximum amount that you think is reasonable, which could be wrong. Then setup a script to determine how many rows the portal contains, then goto Layout (depending on the results) appropriate for the amount, Print, then return to original layout.
