I need to set a report margins when the reports open. I want it set to 1.75".  I think that I am suppose to use Twips in the code. What is the code for setting the left margin to 1.75" or I think 2520 Twips. Does anyone have code for this? Where do I put this code?

You are correct - there are 1440 twips per inch, so 1.75" is 2520 twips.
