    Unanswered: Reports: Page Setup on Other Computers

    The margins are different on each computer and everytime there is an update it changes back to whatever the margin was....

    Is there a way of setting up the reports to print to the proper size?

    yup
    the standard mantra for a web designer applies
    lowest common denominator

    then set thowse values in the report at run time, and pray some slaphead doesn't buy a new whizzy device that is even more inefficent at paper use.

    sorry was in geek mode, brain was using the wrong ADO connection to the fingers

    design to the lowest common denominator in the organisation
    EG if you have people printing for both US & non US (ie ISO Paper sizes) then you need to design for the lower of the 2 settings (height / width). The US Letter paper I think is thinner but longer that ISO A4.

    You need to ensure that your design takes into account the worst case margin settings for printers in the organisation, or accept Microsofts default 25mm (1") margin.
