print margin problem

Since upgrading to Office 2004, everytime I try to print something with a header or footer, I get an error that 'a footer of section 1 is set outside the printable area of the page'. If I continue and print anyway, it prints just fine. If I try to change the margins for the document, then the formatting for the whole page gets messed up.

I didn't have this problem in Office X with these same documents  and reformatting all of my documents will take some time, so I want to find some way around this.

Is there any way to change the minimum setting for the margins so that I don't get this warning anymore?

I am using OS 10.3.4 and have an HP LaserJet 2100 TN.

What determines the minimum margins for the printable area of the page? Word? My printer?

When you do your Print Setup you should be able to adjust the paper size. Just enter 0 for all the margins.

Thanks. Under Page Setup, in most applications I can do that, but not in Word 2004. I did find that  the Paper Size was preselected for Letter (Small) and when I changed it to US Letter, everything worked okay.

For some reason, in Word, if you choose Custom Paper Size, it just lets you set the width and height, but not the margins...

Thanks again for getting me on the right track.
