    Printing Continuous Labels (XP/2002)

    This should be easy, but it's giving me problems. I've set up a labels report using the labels wizard -- a 3"x4" label on continuous feed. The printer is set as continuous, the page type as custom. But it still tries to print the labels as if they belong on a letter-sized page. Any hints or clues as to what is going on?

    This has me perplexed. Normally you don't set the printer as continuous, you specify a paper source that is something like "tractor". Also, check that the unprintable area in printer settings is 0" on top and bottom. Also, check that you don't have any top/bottom margins in your report.

    Thanks! It really was something as simple as the top and bottom margins -- hard to believe! BTW, the paper source was indeed tractor, not continuous -- at the time I wrote the earlier note, I was remembering with less than 100% accuracy.
