Set Paper Size For A Report
I'm trying to print a crystal report to a dot matrix printer. The paper size I want to print onto is 5 1/2 inchs (14cms) in height * 8.3 inches (21.1cms) in width but I can't find anywhere in crystal to set this paper size.
I have also tried going into the printer setup in windows but can't find an option to customize the paper size.
Can this be done from VB? Or how can I set the paper size?

Crystal Report Paper Size
My Front end is VB6 and Back end is Access 2000. For reporting I am using Crystal Report version 22.214.171.124 (Which originally came with VB6). My question is that while working in Windows 98, I could set the paper size (under printer setup) to any custom paper size of my choice. This same thing cannot be done while working in Windows XP. In XP under printer setup, there is no customised option available. For example if I want to print on a paper with size 6 * 6 inch, it is possible to set the paper size in windows 98, but not possible to set it in XP. Recently I have changed my operating system to XP and this is a very serious problem for me. I am sure there must be a way out since one always expects more features in a newer operating system. Please help.
(Please note that this question is in regard to printing on dot matrix printer. I have tried different printer drivers like Epson FX80, Epson FX1050, Epson LQ1050, etc, but in XP, under printing preferences, the older the drivers, the lesser the options are available, but in no case customised paper size option is available.)

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.

Default Paper Size When Printing Crystal Report From VB6
When printing a crystal report from VB6, the default paper size sets to 'Letter'. I would like to change this to 'A4'. I have set the paper size of the crystal report to A4 and the default paper size of the printer to A4. When I print the report from crystal it prints fine but when I print the report from VB6, the paper size defaults to letter. This can be changed to A4 using the Advanced layout options but I want A4 to be the default.
This is the bit of code that sets up the printer and prints the report.
CrRep.Destination = crptToPrinter

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
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?
