^L is a message to your printer to go to the top of the next page - or
what it thinks is the top. If it's a sheet feeder it will take the next
sheet. If it's sprocket-fed continuous paper it will throw the number
of lines remaining on the page according to the page length setting *in
the printer*. For 11" paper, 6 lines per inch this setting is 66. If
your paper length is something different you will need to go into your
printer's setting to change it.

The Informix report writer knows nothing about this. If you're relying
on the printer to look after pagination set the report page length to
zero, otherwise the report writer & the printer will arm wrestle each
other for control & the results won't be what you want.

No, sorry. I can't remember when I last used an Epson. Your printer
manual is your friend. And if you haven't got the manual Google mau
well give you a link to a PDF.
