Question on printing a statement to a "self mailer" kinda statement

Ron
Hi All,

I've got a requirement to print an existing statement printing report to
another printer that's set up to print on a wide-carriage, bottom-fed
dot-matrix printer. That printer's sole job is to print the company's
existing mailer statements (about 5 copies deep with their copy on top,
envelope underneath that, tractor tears on sides, then inside closed up
envelope is client's copy of bill, plus return envelope, plus stub to return
with check, etc). All this is pre-printed, pre carboned where appropriate,
etc. All I really have to do is get my existing report that prints a sheet
of paper as a statement (standard 8.5" x 11") to print this pre-made form
instead. And, that's where I run into problems.

The form is 12" across width, and 6" long (half the normal 12" x 12" fanfold
page). I've put the standard winXP driver into my system for this printer,
but nowhere can I find specifics on how to print only 12" x 6" form--it only
has set widths and lengths, none of which (only about 7 for the printer,
total) match this form. Without that, I can't get the page footer, header,
etc to print where it should.

How does one set up a report for odd sizes such as this with Access2000?

Thanks for any help,
ron

That's tough to do in 2000. Access introduced the Printer object in 2002, which would make this a bit easier. However,
you can do it the old fashioned way. Check this link for info on manipulating the Printer:

The "On The Fly Printing" would be the simplest way to go, if you want to spend the money.
