I'm trying to convert the vpos value (ex. 9479.833) in a report file to actual inches) so that I can give the actual label values for a check to a printer. When I look at the top value in design mode this value is denoted at .53 which I confirm. How is the vpos value converted to inches

As I remember one report unit is 1/10000 inch.

In the case of my sample value 9475.833 my inches value while I am in report design mode shows as .53in but if I divide the value shown by 10000, I get .9475 and thus my confusion.

If I take the hpos value and divide by 10000, I match perfectly with the report design screen value but the vpos value must indicate something other than the vertical position or there is a different calc for conversion to inches.

I am trying to create values in inches to submit to a printer for a report form that is actually a three part laser check format.

I appreciate your answer and time.

I think it's still 1/10000 for vpos. Probably you're not calculating nonprintable area on top

Anyway I'd trust inches in designer and print samples on plain paper and measure.
