I posted a book yesterday and it went strait to the "wish list holds". A couple hours later I received the "request" email and clicked the link so I could go ahead and print out the wrapper. However, it's still listed as a wish list hold.

My only thought is that the requester canceled. If not how do I get the status on this book to change so I can print the wrapper?

From your account page, click on the Transactions Archive. The request was probably canceled and went to the next person in the WL line. The next person will have 48 hours to respond to the request.

The book may have been on the other person's WL as "yes" on autorequest and when that person got online they decided otherwise for some reason.  Once you print out the wrapper the receipient can't cancel so it sounds like in the short window between the book being accepted and you printing out the wrapper the receipient got online and cancelled it.   If that's the case than you wont be able to print the wrapper.
