Change to CS Support service hours

Our Support department is closed on Friday, April 28th for a company event. However, limited Accounting CS phone support is available on that date from 9 AM - 5 PM ET due to the approaching deadline for quarterly payroll tax forms.

Links to our most popular payroll tax processing topics are available in the Alerts and notices section on the right side of most pages.

A column in the design grid that overlaps a vertical page break can cause a blank page to print between each page in the report. To prevent a blank page from printing, you can remove the page break or adjust the vertical sizing of the column.

Follow these steps to remove or resize a column that appears to the right of the red, vertical page break.

  1. Choose File > Report Designer.
  2. Select the report to open it in the design grid.
  3. To delete a page break, select the column to the right of the page break and choose Insert > Remove Page break — or use one of the following methods to resize a column in the Report Designer.
    • Click the column header letter button of the column to change to column mode, and then choose Format > Column > Width. (You can also right-click the column letter and choose Column Width from the context menu.) Specify the width of the column, and click OK.
    • Hover your mouse pointer between columns and drag the column border to change the width of the column to the left when the mouse pointer displays as a horizontal double-headed arrow.
