Default PageSetup properties keep changing

Hello Allen

Very many thanks for your response to this. I am using Access 2000, and I
have found that the Name AutoCorrect was turned on: it's now off!

I note from your reference that you suggest creating a new mdb, turning off
Name AutoCorrect, then inporting all objects. Is that really going to be
better than just turning the feature off then doing a compact/repair?

Thanks again

This doesn't always happen, and I have been unable to identify any

default printer (not corect). I had been advised that setting the page
properties from the File menu item in the main database window was more
reliable than setting them from the report's design view - hence step 3

Can anyone shed any light on this?

Thanks for any help.
