Custom page size for labels

I created a report to print labels, and it created a custom page size for
the report.
When I opened the properties of the printer driver I could see it listed -
as Custom.

Then I had to change printer drivers. (Long story, rather OT.)
When I displayed the report, it was formatted for a full page -
not real useful for mailing labels.
The list of available page sizes did not include Custom.

Then I made a new report, with the new driver set as default.
Again, I was able to create the appropriate custom page size for the report.

Is there any way, after the report has been created, that I can "attach" a
custom page format/layout to it?
Or must I recreate all my reports for use with the new driver?

This may not be applicable or you may already know this.

Setting up custom paper sizes is totally different in the Win NT 4/2000/Win XP
environment compared to Win 95/98/ME.

Go into the list of Printers under the Settings button from the Start menu. You may
need to do this on the print server. Then click on File >> Server Properties Then
you can create a new form with the sizes you want on it as well as a name.

Then you can follow the below steps inside Access to choose the just created Paper
Size. Go into the design of the report, Click 'File',Page Setup', Click the 'Page'
tab., Select 'Specific Printer',, Pick the printer you are using., Click 'Properties'
then the 'Paper' tab., In 'Paper Size' select 'Custom'. and choose your just created
Paper Size.

Hello all, I'm sure there is, just can't figure it out. I have the RGB code and the color number. But the color doesn't exsist in Visual studio.net. Can I add this color to the system pallet it self, so I can add the custom color to fonts? I need to match as close as possible to the color I was given. Thanks Rudy

I have written a small C# application that will print out labels from a little label printer we have. However the size (how long the label is) is determined by a database call. I need to specify a custom paper size every time the print button is clicked. Is there a way to set a custom print size on the fly? I read somewhere else on the newsgroup that you can't do

Hi - I have an ASP.NET page that hangs (some times; if it loads for you, try refresh/F5 several times) when I try to run it on my localhost.

One of the textboxes is multiline and readonly, and the codebehind page has code to read a text file into it. (The text file is about 21,000 characters with spaces.) The aspx page has a...

Hi, I'm new in web parts, I would like to understand a couple of things: Let's say I have a custom control that displays information. That info is fed to the control through an XML string, so the control parses it and builds itself. Now that XML is obtained in the parent page, by calling a c# dll that deals with the database tier. The page then populates some property in
