PDF Export prints differently than how it appears in Adobe Reader

    I've created a pdf export in VB6, and when I view the pdf file in Adobe Reader it looks quite different in print preview. For example, there are practically no top and bottom margins in Adobe Reader, but when I view the document in Preview or print out the document, a one and a half inch margin is added to both the top and bottom of the document.

    I've tried setting the margins in design and run-time but it does not work. I've attached a sample.

    I would appreciate any help.  Thanks!

    You may want to check the page setup settings in your Adobe reader. I've seen those settings add margins when the 'stretch to fit page' setting is checked. There's other printer settings that also affect how your PDF will print.
