The problem is probably the length of the page defined. If open the report in the Report Designer and select the File...Page Setup option, that will bring up a dialog that shows you the page dimension. If you need to change it, click on the Page Setup button on the first page.

Ok Ken, I will give it a try. I will also change it to label to see if it goes better with that.
Today I even try the Set Device to Printer and sent all of the values using @ 7,45 "text", but after it print it eject a page. This is so frustating. Thank you very much for all of your help.
Gabe.
