Access 2000 Report Will Not Save Legal Paper Size Paper Setting And Reverts Back To Letter Size
Posted on 2011-09-12
I have a Access 2k Front-End application with some legal size reports. From years ago, I know there is a known bug with Access reports and saving the legal paper size selection when a legal report is modified and the application redistributed. The modified report will revert back to letter. Has something to do with saving the settings with the printer driver, etc. ... don't remember exactly but that the issue. The work around has always been .... In the new Front-End, once distributed, print the modified legal report to the screen first then do Page ----> Setup and change the paper size to legal. Click ok and the report will print on legal paper correctly from then on.
Now, I have a client machine (Windows XP Pro / Office 2003) the Front-End is still Office 2000 and it will not save or retain the paper size once it's changed. I even opened the report manually in "Design" mode, made the change and check it and it goes right back to letter.
I'm thinking that it's the printer driver??? May have to uninstall and reinstall the printer and printer driver???
Any ideas or help will be appreciated.
