Rightfax/Access VBA output issues

I'm trying to send faxes through Access VBA on Rightfax 8.7 (here's the relevant code):

Set newFax = gl_MyFaxServer.User.faxes.Create()
newFax.ToName = targ
newFax.ToFaxNumber = Number
newFax.Attachments.Add ("L:\Securities Processing\Cashiering-Stock Loan-Money Funds\Stock Loan, Global, DTC\Stock Loan\Audit Confirm Tracking\rpt_1451.rtf")

The fax is going through, but the format of the output is messed up. Specifically, the field alignment is off (which I can correct) and the pagination is off (which I can't); it's almost as if the fax page is longer than 8.5x11. Since I need to retain page formatting I need to use rtf format. Any ideas? TIA....

    Retaining formatting is almost impossible when you are moving across applications.  The only really reliable way of doing this is with pdf documents.

    The pagination is more than likely changing due to the page margin settings.
