5.3. Programmatically Change Margin and Column Settings for Reports

5.3.1. Problem

You'd like to give your applications' users some control over report layout, especially in designating column and margin settings. You could just let them loose in report design mode, but you'd like to maintain a little control over their actions. Is there some way to modify these layout settings from VBA?

5.3.2. Solution

Access 2002 provides each form and report object with a Printer property. Retrieving this property gets you an object with many properties, several of which deal with margin and column settings for reports.
