MS Access 2003 Reports - left side of page is cut off on printing

I have a number of reports in MS Access 2003 report writer that work fine. I've modified a few of them to use an onFormat event which adds colored banding to the report. Now when I print the report the left side of the page is cut off, its like the page has shifted to the left. This is on a landscape report. I can set the border on the left to be an inch and then it will print on the page, but this was not necessary before. I've been through every setting, comparing it with other reports, and I cannot see any difference.

Does anyone have an idea how to uniformly set the x/y coordinates for a report like this...I'm not asking for anything special, just for the report to print on a normal piece of paper.

TIA

First things first.

Does this report work OK without the "colored banding"?
Do these other reports also have the color banding, but display OK?

Sometimes the report gets corrupted and needs to be recreated from scratch...

And just to be clear, ...when you say:
"I have a number of reports in MS Access 2003 report writer that work fine."
Are you meaning to say:
<I have a number of reports in MS Access 2003 that work fine.>

(Or do you actually have some External Report writer)


Screenshots and/or sample files are always helpful for troubleshooting issues like this.
Can you post a sample of your database that displays this issue?

Sample database notes:
Back up your database(s).
Combine the front and back ends into one database file.
Remove any startup options, unless they are relevant to the issue.
Delete any objects that do not relate directly to the issue.
Remove, obfuscate, encrypt, or otherwise disguise, any sensitive data.
Compile the code. (From the database window, click: Debug-->Compile)
Run the compact/Repair utility.
Remove any Passwords and/or security.
Post explicit steps to replicate the issue.
Test the database before posting.

In other words, ...post a database that we can easily open and immediately see the issue.
