WordBasic Object Commands

I have an object declared as a Word.Basic type.  I send text from my VB app to it and need to print it.  Before I print it, however I need to change the printer orientation to Landscape.  How do I do this?
(ie, if my object name is WordLanguage, I know that the executing WordLanguage.InsertPageBreak inserts a page break, and WordLanguage.Font "Courier" sets the font type to Courier, but what property do i have to access to set (or return) the printer orientation?)

Try:

 WordLanguage.FilePageSetup.Orientation=0 ' Portrait
 WordLanguage.FilePageSetup.Orientation=1 ' Landscape

You can also try:

 WordLanguage.TogglePortrait  

from what I have read TogglePortrait will toggle between Landscape and Portrait...

Hope this helps.

I hate to say it, but it doesn't work.  When I try WordLanguage.FilePageSetup.Orientation = 1, I get a run-time error 424 (object required) and while WordLanguage.TogglePortrait , does cause it to change to from one mode to the other -- that doesn't help me if the printer was already in Landscape mode (there doesn't seem to be a way to check the printers original orientation.)

The only way to change to orientation then would be to set it up as a macro and then run the macro from visual basic.
