MS Access 2002 - printing Report to specific tray.

I am trying to print a Report (address labels) to a specific tray on a printer with limited success.

The network printer (HP4200) has Tray3 allocated to Labels, but I have been unable to use the tray without receiving a prompt on the printer itself (Source = "Automatically Select" ; Type = "Labels").

Using various combinations of Source and Type also has limited success. Setting the Type to "Labels" overwrites any value selected for "Source" with whatever value was selected via the printer's Printing Preferences (eg "Automatically Select"). Setting the Source to "Tray3" and Type to "Unspecified" does print the labels automaticallly, but from Tray2 on its plain paper.


Any hints/tips/ideas (for the Access report or the printer) would be gratefully received.

Thanks.

PS I have also posted this question to the HP Printer section.

Wratah,

I have had some success in adding a new printer (actually the same one again) with the default paper tray being tray3.

I then choose the new printer as my printer for this report.

good Luck,

For clarification
When I select Type as 'Labels' (Source is 'Automatically Select'), the correct tray (Tray3) is used but displays a prompt on the printer.
When I select 'Tray3' as the Source (Type is 'Unspecified'), no prompt is displayed on the printer but Tray2 is used (presumably because Tray3 has been reserved for Labels).

in the printer driver select tray 3 as the only paper tray to print to.
