Printing creeps up on the label

Guest

Hi,
I am using Microsoft Access 2003 to print avery labels (36mm x 89mm) using
dotmatrix printer Epson LQ-590.
The Problem is that it wont allow me to reduce the top and bottom margin
to 0mm. I have tried changing margins from FILE-->PageSetup,
TOOLS-->Options-->
--General tab and page setup in print preview. It alway changes the margin
to 4.23mm and wont allow me to go any lower. This is resulting in my eighth
label coming out blank... i reduced the height of the report and have changed
the paper size, but then the print on label does not align and starts
creeping up.
PLEASE HELP!!!!!!!
Regards,
Ansh

Ansh77,
These are always tough to pin down!
If your running XP or 2000, the first suspect is usually the printer driver.

Download and install the latest and greatest, if not a cure... at least it makes the
driver a moot issue.

Make sure your label size is correct. I usually avoid the presets/Wizard sizes, and
just design the report design size instead.
Make sure your page footer is 0mm high, report footer should not apply at all.

Try adjusting the vertical gutter in the Columns section of page setup. Particularly in
regards to "creeping."

Note: I'm surprised that you can't go to 0mm on the top and bottom margin (assuming
vertical)... most of the "old" matrix printers would allow that.
But, I've designed many label reports for inkjet and lasar, where the Top/Bot won't go
to zero either (correctly so), so that... in itself shouldn't cause this problem.

Try these "shoot in the dark" suggestions, and get back on this thread, yea or nay.

HI!

I have the same problem with EPSON LQ 590 and margins in Access.
Did you find the solution?
