Is There Really A Way To Print Into A Legal Size Paper With DataReport?
I have been with this problem a big long ago. I tried the printer.papersize = vbPRPSlegal and nothing, it still prints into a letter size paper (8 1/2 X 11). I don't have the enough budget to buy Crystal Reports and don't know if it can print into different types of paper sizes.
Is there any way to print into a legal size paper with DataReport?

If not, is there a way to tell the printer that I would like it to forward 1 to 2 inches so that I can start printing from the 2nd inch of the legal size paper and print the 11 inches long permitted of a letter size paper to be able to print into the legal size paper till the 13 inch ?
Any help will be appreciated.

Help For Printing A Report On A Legal Size Paper
Anybody know a way I can create a report that supports the size 8.5 X 14 in (legal) paper?
Datareport doesn't support this.
I don't have experience working with Crystal Reports (if anybody has an example for creating this type of report I would appreciate your contribution). I need it for a VB application, I have done reports on Crystal Reports but can't find a way to link it on a VB application in the way that if the contents of a database changes, it is reflected on the Crystal Report.
If anybody can help, please let me know.

Paper Size, Setuserpapersize
im using PIN printer to print a cash bill,

the paper size is 8.5 inch x 5.5inch (half of normal fanfold size)

so, the preloaded papersize in crystal report 9.2 doesn't have such paper size, so i need to set it myself

VB Code:
myReport.PaperSize = crPaperUsermyReport.SetUserPaperSize length, width

refer to the help file in crystal report, the length & width value is in pixel, 1 inch equal to 1440 pixels right?
so 8.5 inch should be 12240 pixels & 5.5 is 7920, but end up not what i want.

after few hundred tries, i found that 1335, 2100 nearly equal to 8.5 x 5.5 inch, why?

anyway to change the scalemode of it to cm or inch?
