    Question Unanswered: Blank page after last page.

    Hi, I'm having a small problem when printing, the problem is that sometimes after the reports ends, I get a blank page. Is there any way to control this?
    thanks in advance

    Try adjusting your Report footer or Page Footer or the bottom of the detail section. (ie. if you have big gap between the bottom part of the detail section to the page footer, make it smaller by adjusting the page footer so there isn't that gap.) Also, if it's only 2 pages and the 2nd page is blank, check the right margin (try decreasing the right margin or do a page setup to extend your margins.) Sometimes the 2nd page is actually the remainder of a small part of the right margin of the first page.

    And lastly, check the properties of the detail, page and report footer. Sometimes a Force New Page after/before section can cause an additional blank page.

    thx stormy
    I do happen to have a large gap, but this is necessary, I will try to adjust it. I know that the right margins are ok as the blank page only prints after the last page and not always. I will also check your last suggestion, I may in fact have this property anabled. thanks again.

    Make sure you use the right paper definition (make sure you are set for A4 and are using A4 paper) and make sure your report has no extra depth beyond the last thing printed... like no blank space under the last object in the Report Footer for example.

    I had the same problem: a blank page on the last page only. The advice in this forum was very helpful. It didn't help me, but I did find out why I was having my trouble and decided to pass on the information.

    In my report (Access 2007,) I had a "group on" footer. In that group I had a page break. I left a tiny bit of space after the page break. After some trial and error, I found this was the problem. I moved the page break to the bottom of the footer, therefore eliminating the blank space, & the problem went away.

    I'm sure this is a newbie mistake, but I wanted to pass on this information for others. (and maybe to remind myself in the future.)
