Printer Margins


I am using the Crystal ActiveX Report Viewer Library 11.0 with a SQL2005 database. The reports are designed in Crystal Reports 11.5. The report generation code has been updated to use the Crystal Reports ActiveX Designer Run Time Library 11.0. The reports were previously generated using the 8.5 version of the same component. All of this is working acceptably.

We have several reports where the exact positioning of the items on the report are a necessity. When running the reports through the 11.0 library, it seems as though the preset margins are enforced. For example, if the first field is located at one inch over and one inch down, it will now print out at 1.18 inches over and 1.166 inches down.

When I open the report for design in Crystal Reports, and select File >> Page Setup, the settings listed below are shown:

Paper Size: Letter

Paper Source: Automatically Select

Orientation: Portrait


Left: 0.18

Top: 0.166

Right: 0.223

Bottom: 0.18

Adjust Automatically: Unchecked

Printer Options: No Printer Unchecked

If I try to change the margin settings to zero, they reset to the above values. Is there any way I can get those values to be zero?

Thank you,
