Default mail merge incorrect page lengths with custom page size

I get incorrect page lengths when printing a custom page size mail
merge. I'm using Word 2000 on Win2000 with an Okidata 591 or 320
(dot matrix) continuous form mail merge invoice form. Under Page Setup
I have Page Size: Custom Size , Portrait, 9" wide and 7" high.

The print preview of the merged document looks ok; each page 7." high
with a section break (new page) at the bottom of each form.

Each invoice in the merged document prints its text correctly but print
a few exta blank lines adding a 4 inches making the entire page length
11" rather than 7." Even if I remove the section break I still get
the extra few blank lines.

I appreciate any help.

Is there a dip switch setting on the printer that is controlling the
indexing from one page to the next. I am pretty sure that all Word is doing
is sending the printer a next page command and the printer is doing the
rest.

Hope this helps.
