My reading of FRONTMGN(*DEVD) is that it uses the printer's no-print border as the margin. I'm assuming that it would lock in the value for that run.

What if you use OVRPRTF FRONTMGN(00.25 00.25)? 1/4" is the 'no print' zone for many printers. Then you could tweak the values in any direction.

Or did I miss something earlier in the thread??

My point is that OVRPRTF does NOT seem to work to control the text margins once OVRPRTF FRONTMGN(*DEVD) is used. So even "poking" at the CL would not help!
