Hi,
I have a SSRS report that prints labels. When printing the report (the label) to the Dymo LabelWriter 400, it comes out very small. The label itself is 3.5 in x 1 1/8. In MS BIDS on the SSRS report. the size of the page is 3.5 x 1.1.25. Margins are 0 all the way round. However, label still prints out small. Any suggestions on how to get the report to print out the full size of the lable?

do not change the size of the page in ssrs.
in the properties of Body[of the report], there is a property called columns, make it 2 or more
then drag a listbox/rectangel into the report, make the size of the list box/rectange or whichever you want,
then see the preveiw, you can will be able to see 2 or more columns based upon u update in the columns property.

in design mode, you would not see the columns, it would be normal body.

I actualy found the Columns in the properties of the Report, but when I change the columns to 2, I could not add text boxes to the second column. I kept the 1 column that I had and widen the table and increased the font size. This worked. .
