I have an Access report which runs fine on Access runtime 2007 but has an extra blank page on Access 2010.
Can anyone help?

Is this happening on the same computer?

Is the extra page at the end?  
Is it completely blank or does it have page header and footer?

All reports or just one report?

OK, 3 PC's run the report fine, 2 have Access 2007 runtime, 1 has Access 2010 runtime.

2 PC's have is a completely blank page at the start of the report, this page is crucial as these documents get passed to a pdf file processor, if the page is blank it does not work.

I want page numbers to start on page 2 so I some code to do this: -

Private Sub PageFooterSection_Format(Cancel As Integer, FormatCount As Integer)

    If Me.Page = 1 Then PageFooterSection.Visible = False
   
End Sub

Could the code be causing this?

"this page is crucial as these documents get passed to a pdf file processor,"

So you are not using Access's pdf writer?

In that case what printer are you using to preview/print the reports- are you using each machine's default printer - are they all the same - or have you set the reports to use a specific printer - is that printer installed on all machines (I suppose it's the A2010 machine we are really interested in)

I can't think of any reason why the code you posted should be a factor here, but obviously you can test it  to see.

Just one further thought - do you have any  Force New Page settings  set to  'Before Section'?

Well...

I installed SaveAsPDFandXPS.exe (Access pdf add in)

And Win2PDF (PDF printer)

It now works fine (not sure which of the above did it!)
