Custom Form Registry Entries
Posted on 2006-03-31
I have 24 print servers that each have a custom form called AirTranXP. In looking at the registry values for these custom forms, I have noticed that they all don't match, some do but most don't. The problem is that I have an Access application that uses this form and in cases where the registry value differs from the one below, the report doesn't print properly. I have been back and forth 10,000 different ways in Access and with Access expersts, and I am 100% convinenced that if I can change the registry values for all 24 print servers to match the one below that I will not have any more problems. When using custom forms in Access, Access uses the PrtDevMode properties and a 16 character string called FormName to identify the form to use. Access doesn't use the actual form name, but the data value in the registry key for the form. The position in the registry key that differs indicates the order in which the form was created in relation to the other forms.
Here is the correct value:
Every server (8 of the 24) that has this value works properly, the rest of the servers do not print properly unless I go in and manually change the page setttings for the Access reports.
Every single server is exctally the same, Server 2003 SP1, configured with the same custom form named AirTranXP.
Here are some of the other registry values from servers that don't print properly:

How can I go about changing the registry values and making them stick?
