Crystal Report advancing to next label

I have a Crystal Report that prints labels. The problem I'm having is that however many labels this report prints, when it has printed the last label, it will advance skipping an entire label before stopping. I have NO idea why this is doing what it's doing. This is a add-on to a previous post that has been resolved. I have attached the report. This CR prints to a "Zebra ZDesigner TLP 3842" thermal printer.

Check the report

Make sure the report footer and page footer are suppressed and set to height of 0
Same for the report header and page header.
Same for any section that isn't used in the label.

Also check the printer to ensure it is set for the proper page size for the labels in use.

Crystal issues a form feed after the report is done.

Where do I check the height for the report/page footer?

Also, as far as the printers proper page size, is there a way to calculate it or do you just have to eyeball it?

You can't check the height directly.
In design view you can see how tall it is then hover the mouse over the bottom until it turns to an = then click and drag it up so it is visibly 0 height

You can add the size of a field in each section to see how "tall" you are printing
Right click a field
Click SIZE AND POSITION
You can get the height

Did you create the report?
If so did you use the LABEL wizard which allows you to set the formats of the label like size number per page etc.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

This is an existing report. I tried what you suggested and nothing seems to work.

How do you prevent a form feed after a report has printed?

mlmccCommented:
You can't so you have to make certain it is sitting at or above the top of the next label.  It may be it is not possible.

There has got to be a way to have the next label ready to print instead of skipping a label each time a report has completed.

DO you have NEW PAGE BEFORE or AFTER set for any section?

Yes, in fact the "Report Header", "Page Footer" and "Report Footer" are all checked but they are also grayed out and I'm not sure how to reverse that. See attachment!

Those can't be changed.

I thought if one of the other sections had it, then the one on the report footer was causing the issue

I have looked on the Printer Settings dialog and can't find anything about a Page Eject...

I added this to your other question by mistake

I assume this is the same label as your other question.

I took a look at it.  I found a couple of potential issues.

1.  There are sections with extra space.
2.  A couple of the items seem to go off the right side of the label

I fixed what I could.  You will need to set the printer and page size since I don't have that printer installed and it change to letter paper when I made changes.
