    1 inch is equal to 72 points (pts), and 1 inch is equal to 25.4 mm, so there are roughly 3 points per mm.

    thanks ......so is it possible to have a left margin=20mm and all the other 3 margins are 10 mm in A4 print out .......

    10mm is not a problem i can use approx 28pts to represent it ,but 20 mm is not possible because max no of pts is 31 in Ms word margin ,,,,,,,,,am i correct ?/or is there any other method to do it?
