Hi All

I have a client, who has an access database that they use to produce Hire Agreements.  They have a front end that they fill in and it then prints out onto a specific paper sheet populating the relevant boxes etc on the sheet.

They have now installed a new printer and the paper size that they are using is now not the standard A4 size.

They have also upgraded to Office 2010 and so I now need to amend the paper size/page layout of the database so that it prints out ok on the new paper, and if there needs to be any movement of boxes etc at least we have a fighting chance of knowing which way and how much it needs to be moved etc.

My question is, does anyone know where we can change this page size option, and if needs be is it the Layout view I would need to use to move boxes around or the design view?

Really appreciate your help on this

Regards

Nick

fingwong,

It would be a good practice to set the page size of you report to be the same paper size set/used by your printer.

You need to change the paper size in the design view of your report. Then do a print preview to ensure that there would be no empty pages when you print it out.

Sincerely,
Ed
