Extra page printing in W98

By kmmikol ·
I have 2 users who print an extra page after each print job. The separator page option is unchecked in the properties of the printer, and I have deinstalled and reinstalled the printers. Any suggestions?

Extra page printing in W98

From which applications? All of them or just one?

Very often Word will have extra space at the end of the document which will result in an extra page being printed, and Access reports are famous for printing extra pages when the report isn't sized correctly for the paper.

Yes, I was familiar with that problem, but it's all apps - WP, WORD, Groupwise, etc.

Without knowing what application the print job originates makes this a challenge...
If printing from Word, the document might include Section breaks which include page break...to fix this you need to use Continuous section breaks by doing the following....
1. Position the cursor where the section break is desired.
2. Click Insert | Break
3. Under Section breaks, select continuous and click OK
4. Remove the old section break
5. Repeat steps 1 - 4 for any other section breaks needed in the document

If the print job is from Outlook, there are a few different fixes....

This can also happen if the PCs are logged on to a Novell Server. In the properties for the Client for Novell Networks there is a tab called Default Capture. This is where you can specify a Banner and a Form feed. Un-tick both of these if they are ticked.
