Margin problem?

P: n/a
On my Windows 2000 box printing to a LaserJet 4100TN, if I have this form
with margins that I'd like to set to 0 on the left and right, Access insists
on .166, left and right. I type zero, and as soon as I tab to the next box,
Access substitutes .166. Well, fine. However, when I put a copy of this
database onto a Windows XP box printing to that same printer (using the PCL
driver, by the way), Access forces the margins on the left and right to be
..25, which is a problem, because the form in question uses every last
millimeter of the page and so with those margins, I end up with extra pages
with nothing but frame edges on them.

Would switching drivers help? Or any other bright ideas?

Thanks in advance.

It might help to switch drivers, since that is where access gets
its minimum margin info. However, HP are usualy competent at
writing drivers for their Laserjets, and usually have a valid
reason for forcing minimum margins, you probably would be better
off changing the printer, or accepting the 1/4" margin.

Thanks in advance.
