There is no way to do this without user intervention. If this is not a concern then you can set the "Show Dialog" option of the Printreport to True.

For example: rptMyReport.PrintReport True, rptRangeAllPages

This will call up a print Dialog window where landscape can be selected.

If Data Report is laid out so that report is wider than 8.5 inches, following code will generate error:
         Report width is larger than paper width  

Printer.PaperSize = vbPRPSLetter
Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
 
rptMyReport.PrintReport True, rptRangeAllPages
