I am using MS Access as a front end to print Employee Badges.
If I print a test / demo badge from the printer itself, or from a photo shop style appication, all is fine.
However with MS Access it prints .006 margin left & right.
How do I fix this?
Thanks,
Russ

You can change the margins in Access from Access's toolbar when viewing your report in preview or design view:

File -> Page Setup

(assuming you are printing the badges through an Access Report)

Yes, Thanks, but that is not the answer.  I need to set the margins at zero, Access will not allow this, but other apps do.  
Is there a way around it?

AFAIK, You can't set the print margins to 0 in Access 2000 or higher.

This is somewhat related:

In  order to negate the effect of the limitation on the margin, you can experiment with different fonts, and with changing the scaleWidth and scaleHeight properties until you achieve the same presentation effect.
