Python png export not including table on layout

Discussion created by grubbtj on Apr 3, 2013
Hello all,

I have a layout that includes a table (created within ArcMap through a attribute table) and I am trying to export it as a png.  However, when I try to export it through python, it doesn't include the table (the map and all other elements are there).

I have tried making a separate python code just for those 2 lines, trying ExportToJPEG, and ExportToPDF. 

However, when I open up the mxd and use the same exact code in the python window within Arc - it magically exports correctly. 

Has anyone else had this issue?  (Using 10.0)
