    I've asked about this a couple of times see http://www.vb-world.net/ubb/Forum1/HTML/010940.html

    but no one seems to know the answer!

    How about this then:

    How can I make the tractor feed on this god forsaken printer rewind about 2 or 3 cm after printing?

    Have you tried other Printer Drivers?
    If you must use the Printer Object, you're going to have to find a Driver that will accomodate your needs, even try the range of avaiable Paper Sizes, see if one is even a close match.

    Otherwise I would use Open "LPT1:" For Output As 1 and send the Prints Directly, using the Printer Emulation Specific Control Codes to Format the Text. This way you have total control over the Printer operations.
