Report Writer Page Length

Can the page length in Report Writer be changed?  We are trying to print labels on a label printer which uses rolls.  The labels are 3 inches long each.  After printing the last label, the printer form or line feeds until it gets to the bottom of an 11 inch page.  In other words, Report Writer thinks it is using paper that is 11 inches long.

Is there a way to change the page length in Report Writer?

RE: Report Writer Page Length

Page Length is controlled by the printable area and paper size defined by the driver.

Edit your printer properties.

RE: Report Writer Page Length


Thanks for your reply.  I altered the page length in the printer properties, but for some reason it does not work for my printer.  In the meantime, I obtained some label printing software that fixed the problem.

Thanks again for the the reply.
