Printing incomplete Access 7.0 & Citizen 220GX

When I ask the computer to print a query or table it omits field names and data for the first three records but prints an empty grid. then it works fine except for leaving off the left boundary line.  I have reloaded Access and Win 95  and the printer drivers. Printer test page is good, says I am using Driver Version 4. I have just set up so I suspect it may be something I did or didn't do.  I appreciate your help.

i think it´s a problem with the printer-driver. try to get a update from citizen. i don´t know the printer, but it will emulate a standard-printer. try to use a driver from windows for this emulated printer. may be that works.

I have contacted Citizen Technical support. there does not seem to be anything wrong with my printer, drivers or settings.
  This problen is unique to Access, other printing functions are fine.

Every time I've run into this it has been a margin limitation of the printer itself. For example - I have a printer at my company that won't print anything in any of the margins for .5 or 1 inch (I can't remeber which). All of our other printers will print right to the edge of the page.

Ask Citizen if this is a possibility.

When things look good in print preview, but don't print right - it's usually hardware.

Print drivers usually fix it -but you tried this. The only other thing I've run into is the user didn't have the font loaded on their PC that I was using. Once I loaded the font, that particular situation was resolved.

Good Luck!

My incresing my Top Margin to 1.8"  Ia mable to print Field Names. i assume by incresing it more I could getin headings. My Top of Form adjustment was set at 9/16" for a genealogy application. Changing it still made no difference.  I still have no left hand gridline, can do without it for now. Thanks to all who helped.
