Default Having layout problems

I am trying to print out an 8-1/2 x 14 Book cover in Landscape view using
Microsoft Word 2002. I have set up a 3 column, 3 row table and I'm having
trouble trying to make the table extend the full 8-1/2 ". I keep getting a
1/2" or so white border at the bottom. Is there any way to get rid of this
border? The site below shows the cover and the white border is indicated by
the red arrow.

Word's tables can't extend beyond the margins of the page, and most printers
have minimum margin requirements.

You can try setting your margin to 0", but you will most likely get a
message saying that the values are "outside the printable area of the page"
- if so click the 'Ignore' button. Also, click in the table & go to
TableTable Properties & select the "Around" text wrapping option so you can
drag the table or use the Properties dialog to position as you wish.

Keep in mind, however, that there is *NO* guarantee that your printer will
cooperate with this, but it is about the only way I know of. What you are
asking to do is not intended to be done in a word processing program or on a
desktop printer.

Thanks Taz.....I had a feeling that was the case.

What Bob says about the unprintable area is spot on, but note that it IS
possible to extend tables beyond the margins in most versions of Word. There
is a Compatibility Option in Word 2003 that must be checked to allow this,
but in some earlier versions it's allowed by default.

Hi Suzanne, I am using Word 2002 so what would I have to do to make this work
for me?

I just checked the Word 2002 Compatibility Options, and that item was
checked, so I assume that tables are automatically allowed to extend beyond
margins in all versions before Word 2003. Provided you don't have an exact
width set for the table, you should be able to drag it into the margins. But
setting the margins to 0" would be even easier (despite Word's squawking).

A quarter inch is about as good as it gets even on laser printers (some can
do 0.2" on some sides). If you're getting that with an inkjet, count
yourself truly fortunate.
