you can make a prt file for your desired size and put it in your /reports25/printer/ folder. name the file in DESFORMAT of system parameters.

Where are you setting the margins?
set the page size in the report properties, they are 8.5x11 inches by default. if you are using the character mode for report the margins are to be set in the character mode tab too.

there are many report printers, but by default 'dflt' is selected. you can make your own prt file specifying the page size, line feed etc. you want and change that in 'DESFORMAT'.
