I have a report setup to print pre die cut labels.  They are 4 on a sheet, 8-1/2 x 11.  When I preview the report it does display the right number of labels.  But when I print the report the right number of labels does not print.  The quantity of labels needed comes from a table.

May be parameters of printer are different from real? Sometimes you can set very small margins, when printer really need more. In your case you should manually adjust size of label and test it until all labels will be printed on one sheet.

I'm probably not communicating properly.  The label is a custom size label 4" x 5" 4-up on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet of paper.  In the the record source (table) I am telling it to print, for example, 100 labels or 25 sheets 4 on a sheet.  But I am only getting one label printed on one sheet of paper.  It seems to be ignoring the count of labels needed in the record source.
