Blank Pages in Printing Reports (Page Height Mismatch?)

P: n/a

I am having a minor but annoying problem with some reports in Access
2003. (I had the same problem with Access 97, so it isn't
version-dependent.) Some of the reports that I originally developed
with the Report Wizard but have since edited now print so that there
is a blank page after each actual page. I assume that this is because
the page size is slightly larger than the Page Setup for the LaserJet.
I assume that I need to adjust some parameter to change the height of
the report page. However, I can't find a control that is the page
height. What do I adjust to do this?

I tried that. I found that the page footer did appear to be the
widest of the controls. I reduced its width. It still prints blank
pages. Nothing is more than 6 inches wide. Any other thoughts?

I received an off-line email reply which offered several suggestions.
The real problem was, as had been suggested, that a few controls were
too wide. There had been some horizontal lines inserted by the Report
Wizard to punctuate the report, some of which were difficult to see in
Design View, but were too wide.

Thank you for the help.

So that's what happened to my post. Agent, my news reader, said it was sent
but it never showed up here. I must have had another senior moment. There are
two reply buttons, one to the news group, and one by email. I used the wrong
one.

I apologize to Bob and all the readers of this news group. The message was
supposed to come here for everyone to see. I don't have a copy, so I can't
repost. All that was in the message was a list of simple little things I've
done in the past that caused blank pages to be printer. If Bob has a copy of
the email he received, maybe he could copy the body into a message to this
group.

Just a wizzard proder.
Chuck
