Using MS Access/connecting label printer to Access

Advertisement


Question
I am supporting a legacy application in Access 2007 that has successfully printed mailing labels on a (Dymo 400) label printer for several years.  The printer has recently been replaced with a Dymo 450 label printer, and even when the new printer is the default printer, labels do not print.  In http://en.allexperts.com/q/Using-MS-Access-1440/2009/9/Label-Size.htm, you wrote "First, you need to set the Access report to use a Specific printer, selecting your label printer."  How can I do that?
Thanks for your help.

Answer
In Design mode of the label, Select Page Setup. You may need to select Page Setup again on the Page Layout ribbon. On the Page tab there is a choice for Specific Printer. select that then hit the printer button to select the printer. After that is done, you may need to select the label under the Size choice. You may also have to go back to Print Options to select the margins.

Hope this helps,
