I have a label on a page footer that prints off the bottom of the page of paper even through the bottom margin in page setup is at .393.   The page footer is set at 1.6" and the label is 1.4688".  

Why would this be happening?

That often happens when the height of the bottom margin plus the height of the footer cause the printed footer to exceed the physical height of the paper. Try reducing the size of the bottom margin. Open Print Preview after making a change to see the results. Keep reducing the size of the bottom margin and reviewing Print Preview until you get the desired results.

I could not replicate your issue...
So let's clarify:
I have a label on a page footer that prints off the bottom of the page of paper
...meaning that it prints on the next page? (Top or bottom?)

Can you post a screenshot of this phenomenon in print preview and also post a screenshot of the report in design view.
(Sometimes there is confusion between the "report" footer and the "page" footer.)

Jeff,

Regarding "...meaning that it prints on the next page? (Top or bottom?)"  No.  It just stops printing at the very bottom of page one.  The rest of the copy doesn't print anywhere.

But here is another strange thing...  in print preview mode the report looks fine.  It is not until I actually print it to a printer that the copy falls off the bottom of the page.

Is this the case with all reports?, all users?, all databases?
Try recreating the report

When did this abnormality first appear?
Try removing, then reinstalling the Printer

In addition to posting the screenshots, ...could you post a simple sample of this database?

Is there possibly any code or conditional formatting in the report that suppresses the footer at certain times (such as print vs preview)?

I ended up changing the font from MS Sanserif to Arial and the issue went away. ????
