Cannot print work orders for specific trains

I don't really want to continue to post problems. On Tuesday when I was printing out my paperwork for OP session 2 that I returned to when I found that Ver 352 solved my way out of order Loads / Empties ratio problem I encountered another problem. My problem was that I could not get a work order to print for 4 specific trains and the common characteristic was that EACH train was a thru train between my main yard at Riverside and my staging yard. The work orders for ALL of my on-layout turns printed properly.

I just completed an experiment and found that the problem exists with Ver 351 and 352; but work orders print properly with Ver 354 and 355.  I did the above experiment with two different ProTrak data folders just to make sure I didn't induce a problem when I recreated my newest ProTrak folder.

Clearly I can use the outgoing switchlist to construct my trains heading down to staging.  So all is not lost

Has anybody seen this problem on their layouts? Am I correct that the only way to print a work order is to go into Operations, click on Yardmaster, click on Print work orders and then either double click on  a specific train, or single click on a train and then click on the Blue Print Work order at the bottom of the screen?
