Dim pageboundleft As Integer
Dim pageboundright As Integer
Dim pageboundtop As Integer
Dim pageboundbottom As Integer
pageboundleft = e.MarginBounds.Left
pageboundright = e.MarginBounds.Right
pageboundtop = e.MarginBounds.Top
pageboundbottom = e.MarginBounds.Bottom
'gets column width in pixels?
Dim xincrease As Integer = (pageboundright - pageboundleft) / (gridcolmax + 1)
