Printing labels on fanfold paper

Guest

I am trying to print labels on fanfold that has 12" high pages with 12 rows
of 1" labels per page. When I use a label detail height of one inch, I get a
blank row at the bottom of the page. If I reduce the detail section enough to
get 12 rows, the printing gradually creeps off the labels. I have made a
special page design for this printer by going to server properties, etc.
Height of my labels: One inch
Number of labels down: 12 lables per page of fanfold
Space above the top label on paper: Zero
Space below the bottom label on paper: Zero
Minimum top margin allowed by printer: 0.166"
Minimum bottom margin allowed by printer: 0.166"
Is there a solution either in Access or by obtaining some other fanfold paper?
Thank you for your consideration.

A printer that supports tractor-feed should be able to set its top and
bottom margins to zero. Are you sure you have tractor-feed chosen as the
paper source?

If that is not possible, you could set your label height to 0.666 inch, and
place a group footer of 0.333" between the labels. Then programatically
suppress this footer at the bottom of the page.

Details of that approach in:
Print a page with 3 evenly spaced mailing slips

You can adjust the article to cope with 12 evenly spaced labels.

Thank you Allen. Yes, I have selected "continuous" paper as the source. I
will get the article you referenced and will apply it the next time I am at
that office.
