    report page layout won't stick (2000)

    Hi, I have noticed that a report I have formatted to be in landscape page orientation and certain margin sizes will not stick - when opening the database and viewing the report at a later time, it will have changed to portrait and returned to default margin sizes. Does anyone know why this is happening? This is a real nuisance, as the end users are not going to have access to design view to be able to change it back!

    Cheers,
    Roger

    Select Tools | Options..., activate the General tab and make sure that the check box labeled "Track Name AutoCorrect Info" is cleared.

    Name AutoCorrect is known to cause problems with reports forgetting their page setttings.

    It is a database-level setting, so you will have to change this in every database.

    Thanks, Hans. That seems to be working, however it has been intermittent in the past. I've tried it a few times now and so far so good.
