    Could you please detail what kind of  *footer* do you mean?

    If you need to have a report footer, then you need to add ReportHeader/Footer section and set the PrintAtBottom = False for the ReportFooter section.

    If you mean page footer on every page of the report, there is no way to do that, since these sections are always printed at the top/bottom of each page in the report (accordingly to the page settings).

    sorry for delay...

    i have a epson LQ 300 printer , and it supports roll paper(continous paper) with no limit of paper height.

    now which settings i must use for printing with continuos paper ?

    i mean in roll paper printing i don't want to have more than one page report...and all of report must print at the one page with dynamic unlimited paper height .

    thank you

    Dim fld As Object

    For Each fld In Detail.Controls

    fld .CanGrow = True

    fld .CanShrink = True


    Detail.CanGrow = True

    Detail.CanShrink = True

    Use GroupFooter without group to print footer.
