Dear Sirs,

I need to print a report in  A4 paper.
I can't use the Crystal Reports 5.0, because it has limitations.
 I'm trying to make it through the PrintForm method of the Visual Basic 4.0
Form. I'm using 1024 x 768 resolution, and this form only print what is
displayed.

Question: Can I create a form bigger than the Desktop (1024 x 768), in the
A4 dimensions, to view it in the screen, and print it?

Note: Because the report structure is very complex, I can't print the
report through the Printer Object and Print Method.

How can I do it?

It is possible to set the Printer.zoom property to magnify a form before printing.  Although not all printers support the zoom property if your does you can magnify your form keeping it in the same proportions.
