    I have problem that I print the report in LasterJet Printer, it work fine (only 2 page), but when the client print the same report to InkJet Printer, it print 4 page and the second and forth page is blank.

    I set the Height of the page to 16836 <- it work fine at Laserjet printer.

    So, how to solve this problem, what is the max height for A4 / F4 / A3 or B4 paper?

    There are 566.93 twips per centimeter. You'll need to know the height of your paper in cm. For example if A4 paper is 29.7cm tall, then you'd multiply 29.7 by 566.93 to equal the maximum length of ~16838.

    is it the same for laser printer and inkjet printer?

    my report just set the height to 16836 with all margin to 0, it is good at laser printer but print a blank page at inkjet printer, why?

    So how to solve this?

    If you use the same size of paper for both inkjet and laser printers then yes the paper height is the same.


    However, not all printers are created equal as far as printable area, some, especially old HP inkjets need a margin not less than half an inch (720 twips) or maybe even more.
