    page format - losing settings (2000) (Access 2000)

    Has anyone had the problem with your page setup reverting back to the defaults? 1" margins, portrait? I have no idea where to look anymore. It will be working fine for a while, and then all of a sudden they run the report and all the settings are lost. I can't figure it out.

    I thought it might have something to do with the default printer, because this is a shared database, but today I'm having it happen on a report I'm just developing, with no one else even opening it.

    Any input appreciated. Or if you know of a reference. I've looked on microsoft's page but couldn't find anything.

    Thanks in advance!

    Yes - it's a known bug in the original release of Access2K. If you apply SR1 of Office 2K it gets MUCH better, although we have seen a case or two of it even with it. The documentation regarding the fix is buried pretty deep in the details about the Service Release. It should still be available to download if you don't have it on CD. Try it - you'll like it! <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23>

    I was already running SR1, but I uninstalled office and reinstalled it to be sure. It was still happening but I found another article in the knowlegebase (Q240826)that said to take the check mark out of the Name AutoCorrect box under Options, in addition to SR1. So far this seems to be working. Thanks for pointing me in the right direction.
