Very strange. I can't find any difference. However. If I recreate the
boundary and rehatch the area. It will have a boundary.

I've seen it happen - attached is a file with two hatches, the one on the
right does not display the hatch area, I've never known why.
and before you ask, I have already searched the discussion groups for this problem (both 2006 and 2007) and not found an answer under area hatch, area, or cumulative area.
I have also tried convertplines, tried saving as 2007 (our default is 2000). I have tried PE to make sure all polylines are closed, and I have not trimmed or messed with the hatches in any way. Other people at the office are able to get areas from hatches without problem, so I know it can be done.
