DYMO Labelwriter

P: n/a
I use a DYMO labelwriter with my Access 97 database. I just purchased a new
computer and in the report section under page setup/paper size, the new
computer keeps changing the size automatically. I know something must be
different on the machines. But what? I have checked everything !
Thanks,

Ira

Look for the NameAutoCorrect setting in the database options and turn it
off. (sounds unlikely, but it fixes the problem)

Ira,

Goto your database options in the tools menu and uncheck the
autocorrect option. It may be called something slightly different
since I haven't used 97 in a while. This bug is addressed in a jet
patch...sorry I don't know what version though. I hope this helps!

Thanks for the reply. I tried this, but no luck. I was told this fixes the
problem in Access 2000 only. Any other thoughts. Where do I go to compare
the files Access uses for printing. Maybe there is a slight difference in
some of the DLLs?

fine, on 2 it doesn't.

With Dymo drivers under both Access 97 and 2002 I have seen the driver
insist on changing the margins back to some strange settings such as a
2.5" margin on a 3" label paper size. Reinstalling the driver has
worked on occasion. Last week I ran into the the problem again and
fixed it by using page setup and setting the report back to the
default printer, saving, then exiting. I ran page setup again and
returned the setting to specific printer and I was able to set the
margins successfully. It's worth a try on your system.

The Dymo label printers are great, however Access will not allow Page
and Printer Setup saving in MDE Runtime. There is NO work around that
I can find in over one year of searching. The only fix lies with Bill
Gates and crew. They need to enable Page and Printer Setup Saving in
MDE Runtime.

If you are using Access 2002 or newer there is a workaround that I now
use to solve the many problems I have encountered over the years with
Dymo drivers. You can use this solution for most page setup settings
and it also works with MDEs. When you know what the margins, print
orientation, paper size, and other settings should be for your labels,
you can save this data to a table in your MDE. Using the new Printer
object, you can apply the settings to your report at runtime each time
the report is opened. In essence, your code opens the report in
preview mode then changes settings of the report's printer object. If
you are printing rather than previewing the report, open in preview
mode but hidden. Take a look the Printer object in Help for more
information.
