page margins in Word

Hi all,
anyone know what the minimum margins can be set to in (Microsoft Word),so that when printed out on a Canon ip5200 (A4) it prints without cutting anything off.I know I could find out by trial & error,just wondered if any of you knew already.

Setting Margins

Click the Print Preview button on the toolbar (beside the printer).

The document will appear in the Print Preview window.

Click and drag the mouse over the margin you wish to change on the ruler. If the ruler doesn't display click the view ruler button on the toolbar.

A line will appear to show the new location of the margin.

In theory you should get a message that the margins are "outside of the printable area" if you make them too small.

I do with my Canon i850.

As Jackcoms writes you should get a warning from Word if the margins are "outside of the printable area". It then offers to "Fix" any that are too small. If you set all margins to zero and let Word "Fix" the problem then the minimum figures will be set.
