I have a ms access report in a mdb that gets compiled and run from a mde.  When I change the page setup printer for the  report and save it and recompile, when the report runs it keeps referencing the old printer and you get the message the the report was formatted on blah blah do you want to use the default.  

How can I free it from the old printer setting?

my understanding is that you can post reference links, just not links to questions and answers on other forums.  I love Allen's site!
