Embedded pdf in Access report prints really small

I have created a database, on the form, there is an embedded pdf for each entry, I then created a report to print the form including the label, however, the pdf image is really small on the report.
On the form itself the pdf is the right size, when I press the print preview button I created on the form, the pdf appears the right size, however, when I do File/Print preview or simply print, the pdf image is really small in the upper left corner.
I have made sure that the field is set to stretch and I have tried creating the pdf with word, adobe professional, primo pdf, scansoft and gaaiho pdf all with the same results
Any help would be greatly appreciated
Thanks
Jeannie

FWIW, I have never had any luck printing PDF's directly in reports.
Perhaps there is a way to do this in the newer versions of Access, ...but I rarely had the need to d this.
So let's see if anther Expert has any insight...

What happens if you just print the Form itself?, ...does the PDF print properly then?

Another option might be to save the PDF as an image and insert this image into the Report.

Actually, this worked in the database previously, I am trying to see if it's a server/printer issue by copying the previous version on the server to see if the issue is the same, then I guess it will be an Access 2007 issue
I will post after my test

I am the one who fixed it, however, the way to fix it was to crop the image and make it full page in Adobe before inserting it into the form
