Access 2013 - Reporting Question

I am receiving the message:
"The section width is greater than the page width, and there are no items in the additional space,,,,,,"

My report width is 10.2" and my page size is 11"
It is set in Landscape mode.

What am I missing?
Thanks!
Dennis

make sure you narrow the report section to the last control you have on the right side and this message will disappear.

You are missing the left/right margins. These add to the report width to get the desired paper width.
Quite often you can adjust the right margin down to little or zero.

Setting the right margin to zero resolved my issue.
Thanks Gustav!

Setting the right margin to 0 might make Access happy but not all printers will be happy with that as a setting.  You should reduce the width of the report by dragging the right edge to the left so it abuts the right edge of the right-most control.  If your controls go all the way to the maximum page width, then you should adjust some column sizes to reduce it to make room for a right margin.  Make sure you test thoroughly with ALL your different printer models to ensure you don't have any that require a right margin.  Not all printers can actually print to the right edge of a page.

This is what I meant above, the message was indeed due to this and not because of the margin.
