section width greater than page width message

I am using the label wizard to create a label report. I select the label
size - Avery #4013 - Continuous feed, and then select my font of 10 and the
fields to display (typical address data). When the report is displayed, I
get an error message stating the section width is greater than the page width
and I also get blank pages in between each label.

I have shortened the width and the space at the top and bottom of the label
but this throws off the printing of the labels. I thought the label wizard
allowed the user to select the correct label size so that you don't have to
guess what the dimensions of the report are to fit the labels you are using.
I'm confused and would appreciate any help I can get. Thanks!

Some modern printers require a larger or smaller no print area.
The wizard cannot guess which printer is going to be used.

Work-a-round:
(Try it after each adjustment.)
Make sure the printer left and right margins are at the minimum.
Make the controls (not the detail section itself) a bit smaller (in
width).
If you can, move the controls towards the left as much as you can.
Move the controls up as much as you can.
If you fiddle with it enough, you can probably get it to print without
that message. Even with the message, it will most likely print OK
anyway.

Thanks for the suggestions. I thought by changing any of the locations and
margins, I would be changing the actual format of the label I needed. I just
am not sure why I keep getting a blank page in between each label.
