Word Exports Not Setting Header Margins

    I've been struggling to change the header's margin when exporting a DOCX file. Right now I'm trying to debug things in the Active Reports Designer but no matter what I set the Page Layout > Top Margin to, it remains at 0.5 inches in the exported Word file.

    I know I have my header setup right as it looks the way I want it to on the preview page, as well as in PDF exports.

    Is this a known issue with Active Reports 13? Or is there something else I should be setting in order to get this to look right in Word?

    In my understanding, it is by design. Top margin set the margin of the page, not the "Header from Top" property.

    Hope it clarifies.

    Thank you for your reply Mohit. Is there a way to set the Header from Top property in Active Reports?

    Sorry to mention that there is no property to set the Header from Top in Active Reports.

    I see, that's unfortunate. Thanks again for the clarification.
