You indicated the 1099 NEC form is not lining up correctly. You wrote "I have tried customizing the form to fix the alignment but when I get the 1st and 2nd one correct, the 3rd one goes to page 2."
So are you saying the first two forms are lined up now? What is off on the third form? Is it too high, too low? By how much?
There are two group footers on the vendor ID. Group Footer 2a prints the data on the form, and group footer 2b provides the appropriate spacing between the printing of the forms by group footer 2a.
If the first form is lined up correctly, and the second and third forms are a little bit too high, increasing the size of group footer 2b should force the second and third forms down a little bit.
I have tried to reformat the 1099-NEC form based on the response from MS Support mentioned below.
I have almost got it working but the third 1099-NEC on the form will not line up.
On my attached print out I have colored coated the two Group Footers mentioned in the MS response.
As you can see there is a Group Footer #2b shown between 1099 #1 and 1099 #2 and then at the end of the page. There is no Group Footer #2b shown between 1099 #2 and 1099 #3 therefore any adjustments are not working to move #3 down.
I just found an issue that causes the missing Group Footer #2b between 1099 #2 and 1099 #3.
In the formula to suppress the Group Footer #2b there is an additional formula used called "Last Form". The FormCnt is set to 2 not 3 for a three up format. It is still thinking that the format is still two forms per page.
I have the format almost working correctly. Having my client print a page on actual stock and from the printer to be used to print the forms.
I am going to this to MS to get a better understanding of how to make the correction to the format to get the third 1099 to fit correctly.
