Hi!

Here's another problem I'm running into. I keep finding that I'm
getting blank pages printing out between each report page when I print.
My first thought was that it was just a field crossing over a margin,
and I went and found the responsible field and moved it well within the
acceptable limits. However, it still prints out the blank pages. I,
and several other people in my department, have made absolutely certain
that there isn't anything outside of the margins.

What I think is happening is that when I create a report, it will
automatically pop all of my fields in a straight line out into
oblivion. Then I'll move these fields around to format this report on
to one page, but the "report design space" is still registered as
needing two or three pages.

I've even gone so far as to write a query, then delete every single
item in the Report Formatting screen, and then put one small field in
the middle of a page. I still end up with blank pages printing out.

Any ideas? Any input is appreciated. Thanks!

- Kris

Did you try to click in the background and specify default page size
ex.8.5 by 11"? Maybe this will help..
In my case when I had similar problems, it was always a field exceeding
page size or nested report with the same problem.
