A4 page changes to Letter size

P: n/a
Ian
I am using Access 97 SR1, when I move my database to another PC some or all
of the reports change from English A4 to American Letter. I am sure this has
been addressed many times but I cant find any references to it, any help
would be appreciated.

(Sorry if I have sent this twice, also having problems with news groups,
most of the time I get "unrecognised response from server", I wonder if
there is a news group about problems with news groups, or is that an off
subject question?)

Have a look at My computer > printers > printer properties. You will probably
find the default paper size is set to letter

Sorry, have a look where? On My Computer I just have a list of drives, on
the Control Panel I can see the printers but cant see where you would set
the default paper size?

When these reports change size they change permanently, I have to go to each
report individually in Access and set them back to A4.

I am using Windows XP, under each printer name I have Preferences, my main
and default printer is a Minolta 3100 which is set to A4, but another
printer was set to Letter.

Do you think this setting on its own would cause the problem? I have not
printed anything, just in the middle of writing an Access report when
several or all of the reports change to letter, more often this happens when
moving between drive or PC's?

Thanks for your help.
