how to print Dot Matrix mailing labels that are a continuous feed, not a sheet of paper.

it is not an avery label, but it is closest to AVERY # 4146.  What i am trying to do is stop Crystal from reaching the end of a form, forcing a page break (a larger gap than is between labels) and then starting printing again when it thinks it is a new sheet of paper.  I need it to NOT page break when it reaches a page length.  In short, i need to tell Crystal that it is NOT normal paper, but it is instead a continuous feed, with no page breaks.  Any ideas?

Crystal gets its page settings from Windows.  Define a Generic/Text Only printer and use it instead of the drivers wanting to print graphics.  Set the Paper Source in Printer Setup to "Continuous - No Page Break"

Use the Mailing Labels report expert to setup your label size and set the page margins to 0 top/bottom and whatever you need left/right.

You will lose most of your ability to specify fonts and will be using the fonts built into the dot matrix printer.

Well, i found my own solution:
i set the PAPER SIZE to the size of the mailing label, and set all of the margins to zero.  This is working great.  And the fonts have to be VERY specific.  I appreciate the info DRRYAN3.  is that a name from hunt for red october?
