    The section width is greater than the page width?

    I just started getting this error message when I run a report in access. I never got this message before. My section width is 8.5 (landscape) with margins of R=.5 and L=.25. I don't have any data on the report past 7.5".

    When I print preview I have a blank between each report page. Can anyone tell me what I can do to get rid of the extra page?

    Thanks for your help!

    If none of your data goes past 7.5", I would try resizing the report so that it is more narrow.

    What I Found:

    Here's what I found:

    When you first start a report in design view, Access (2003) gives you a small workspace by default. You need to size that to letter size, or whatever your using, RIGHTAWAY, first thing! Access will not accept any changes to the work area after you start assembling the report, and will give you this error message, and nothing you can do will fix it. You will have to copy as much as you can off the report, then paste it into a new report design. Access is very stupid this way.

Please reply to this thread with any new information or opinions.
