    yes, in my application when i try to load the datareport when the page set up of the default printer is not set to a paper size =letter and orientation = landscape, it shows an error paper width is larger than report width... i want to permenantly change the page set up of the default printer before loading the datareport... using commondialog did not work

    Re: printer

    What happens if you change the papersize manually by Printer.PaperSize ?
    can you do that in vb. it think printer object only expose the information on the installed printer..e.g print printer.papersze

    do you mean manually changing the paper size on printer preference
