    Hi,

    Does someone knows how to change the paper source (A4 vs Letter) of a report
    in a .MDE (that is, an otherwise normal Access file with the design
    informations stripped)?

    I guess it can be done using hex editing ;-), but I am seeking something
    more user-friendly...

    The goal is to update ACWZTOOL.MDE (provided with MSAccess, which contains
    the "advanced" wizards), in particular Reports![doc_rptObjects], to make it
    learning that outside North America, A4 is used, not Letter...

    No way that I'm aware of.

    However, doesn't the wizard generate a report that you can then modify?

    I could be wrong, but I think modifying the existing ACWZTOOL.MDE
    file would be in violation of the license agreement.
