    Hi
    Newbie here. I am constructing a DB in Access 2000. I have one form with all the data from the other forms on it, and i want to print out this form for all the test entries. In print preview the print area doesnt fill the whole page, how do I adjust this? I have tried page set up, which is landscape, and letter size, and margins are 1" all round. but the form is only shown filling just over half a page width ways.
    In design view the area of the form is smaller than the area of the paper.
    Other forms only show the header in print preview.

    many thanks

    It is normal to Print using a "Report" rather than a Form. You can adjust a Report to any size you want.

    thanks, I realise this. but as part of my checking the DB for errors i am inputting fake data. I would like to see the form that contains the data for each client.

    So should i have made a report for each client??

    Yes, but you only need one report, it will print out all of the records for you.
    If you have a lot of data for each client you can set the Report to print just one client per page by using the Grouping and Sorting function.
    If you use the Report Wizard to create it you will see this facility.
