    Can you link to the page showing the issue please.

    As far as I am aware this should work, but it is quite possible there is a bug here.

    Thank you for the link you sent by e-mail. The issue is that only the first table is visible when it is loaded. The other tables are hidden in tabs, which mean that they don't have any height or width and the Flash movie that TableTools uses cannot be sized to fit the tab.

    The fix is to use the fnResizeButtons method whenever a tab is made visible. That will let the Flash buttons be resized to fit. There are a number of discussions about this in the forum if you search for fnResizeButtons.

    Another option is to update to the new Buttons extension with its HTML5 export options which do not require Flash.
