    Default Design and layout

    We have a check paper of 8 1/2 x 11 it has 3 checks per page each of them is 2.78 in. and in the bottom the left over is blank paper when we are designing it comes to the second page, the check doesn't start at top its off with about half an inch the third page is already off with 1 inch how can we do that each page shall start from the top this is on the report layout

    Thank you

    Have you tried a label layout rather than a report layout? With a label you have more controls, I think. You would specify three labels per page, bottom margin of the leftover area.

    David,

    lengthen the bottom of your page just a bit. Make sure headers and footers are gone. You may have to play with it a little to get it perfect.

    You cannot do some things with labels that you can with reports as easy. So you know, it is just as hard in the top 1500.00 report writer for vb and others. With a report, you will be able to start a check with the second one or third one down too without a lot of hassle.
