Blank Pages in Access 2003 Report

I have an Access 2003 report with every other page being blank.  Orientation is landscape and the margins are as follows.
Top 0.4
Bottom 0.25
Left 0.166
Right 0.25

The white section of the report (in Design View) has a height of 6.7 inches (approximately) and width of 9.5 inches.  There are no headers or footers.  Force New Page is set to none.  The Keep Together property for sorting and grouping is None.  

Can someone please suggest what I should look at next to solve this?

In report design, grab the right edge of the design surface and pull it as far left as it will go.

  Where does it end up?

 Usually it's a thin horzontial line along one of the band markers that you don't see which is causing the problem.

If you still end up at 9.5, then check the page size is 8 1/2 x 11.  If that checks out, then look at the code to see if anything is being moved, placed, or a page is being forced (ie. look for page break controls that you my be hidding/un-hidding.

Just check that any controls in your report designer that are off the pre-defined boundaries. Use <Ctrl>+<A> to select all objects and check if any of the objects bigger than any of the band's boundaries. These annoying things happen from time to time

I highlighted all controls using <Ctrl>+<A> and did not find anything that exceeded the boundaries. Can you suggest something else?

Please also check the paper size of the report and the printer. Sometimes it is Letter in one and A4 in another

Can you upload a copy of your database with just the report and sample data to view it?

Both the printer and report show paper size as Letter.

The data is sensitive so I'm not able to upload a copy of it.

Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear.  When I said sample data, I meant fake data.  Can you not replace the data with some dummy information?

The problem was with some code I had pasted incorrectly behind the report.  The code was compiling without error and the report runs so I did not initially suspect the problem was there.  Blank pages are usually caused by incorrect margins or locations of controls that force results to spill over to a second page.

I appreciate comments submitted by all three experts as those are good trouble shooting steps to follow.  In my case the solution was to fix code behind the report and I appreciate Jim's (JDettman) suggestion to look in that direction.
