    I used version 1195 for years without a problem with a custom sized form. But now I needed a the latest version SP4 (1283) because of a bug in the scripting behaviour.

    What happens now is that there is an extra page after printing (preview is correct, printing from preview is correct) on a matrix printer

    In the fix list is mentioned that CR13996 was fixed, but it is still not working.

    Even on a normal (laser) printer there is an extra page.

    Attached is the sample that we used to test the CR. Can you test this sample on your printer and see if you get the form feed. I tested it here on one of our printers and it did not feed. If the report's print width + the left and right margins exceeds the paper width you can get blank pages every other page, which could appear to be a form feed, which is why I would like you to test with this sample. If it still feeds, what type of printers are you using?

    It still prints 2 pages, i test it on a HP Laserjet 6, with normal A4 paper.

    Debug report:

    Me.Printer.PaperSize: 256
    Me.Printer.PaperHeight: 12240
    Me.Printer.PaperWidth: 12240
    Me.PageSettings.PaperSize: 255
    Me.PageSettings.PaperHeight: 5280
    Me.PageSettings.PaperWidth: 12240

    But when I used these code it prints 1 page:

    '     Me.Printer.PaperSize = 256
    '     Me.Printer.PaperHeight = 5280
    '     Me.Printer.PaperWidth = 12240
         Me.PageSettings.PaperSize = 255
         Me.PageSettings.PaperHeight = 5280
         Me.PageSettings.PaperWidth = 10000

    I need to figure that out.

    But with version 1179 there was no problem. I installed that version again, and no problems
