Can anyone tell me if there is a way to force a print to come out in Landscape instead of Portrait. I'm Using Crystal Report Activex Control in V.B 5.0 and can't print in Landscape Orintation when the defaul orintation is Portrait

I think you have to start the report whith code:

Public Sub OpenTheReport( ByRef CurrentFrm As Form)
On Error GoTo ErrorHandler
    Dim Result%, jobnum%, mainjob%, dialogflag%, resultlong&
    Dim JobInfo As PEJobInfo, TempText$
    Dim PrintData As Printer
    Dim crDEVMODE As DevMode
    Dim HasSavedData As Long
    Dim PrintOptions As PEPrintOptions
    Dim Msg As String
       
    Result% = PEOpenEngine()
    If Result% = 0 Then
        HourGlass False
        MsgBox "Cant get conntact with Crystal Report!",
        vbOKOnly + vbCritical, "Systemerror"
        Exit Sub
    End If

    JobInfo.StructSize = PE_SIZEOF_JOB_INFO
    jobnum% = PEOpenPrintJob("RepeortFilename")
       
    crDEVMODE.dmOrientation = 1 'or 2 this change the
                                 orientation
    crDEVMODE.dmDeviceName = "RptDeviceName"   'printername
    crDEVMODE.dmSpecVersion = &H320 'version of the DEVMODE
                               structure Win32
    crDEVMODE.dmSize = 68                              
    crDEVMODE.dmFields = &H1
    Result% = PESelectPrinter(jobnum%, "DriverName",
    "DeviceName", "Port", crDEVMODE)
   
    PrintOptions.StructSize = PE_SIZEOF_PRINT_OPTIONS
    Result% = PEGetPrintOptions(jobnum%, PrintOptions)
    PrintOptions.StartPageN = Rpt.RptFraSide
    PrintOptions.stopPageN = Rpt.RptTilSide
    PrintOptions.nReportCopies = Rpt.RptKopier
    Result% = PESetPrintOptions(jobnum%, PrintOptions)
   
    If Rpt.RptPreview Then  
        Result% = PEOutputToWindow(jobnum%, Rpt.RptTittel, 0, 0, Screen.Width, Screen.Height, WS_MAXIMIZE + WS_SYSMENU + WS_MAXIMIZEBOX + WS_THICKFRAME, 0)
        Result% = PEStartPrintJob(jobnum%, True)       uforutsette resultater
       
        If Result% = 0 Then
            Msg = "Error"
            ShowErrMsg (Msg)
            GoTo Avslutt
        End If
       
        Result% = 1
        Do While Result% <> 0
            DoEvents
            Result% = PEGetWindowHandle(jobnum%)
        Loop
    Else                    
        Result% = PEEnableProgressDialog(jobnum%, True)
        Result% = PESetDialogParentWindow(jobnum%, CurrentFrm.hwnd)
        Result% = PEOutputToPrinter(jobnum%, Rpt.RptKopier)
        Result% = PEStartPrintJob(jobnum%, True)            

        Result% = PEGetJobStatus(jobnum%, JobInfo)
        Select Case Result%
            Case PE_JOBNOTSTARTED
                TempText$ = "Cant start"
            Case PE_JOBINPROGRESS
                TempText$ = "Printing"
            Case PE_JOBCOMPLETED
                TempText$ = "Printing ready"
            Case PE_JOBFAILED
                TempText$ = "Error"
            Case PE_JOBCANCELLED
                TempText$ = "Cancel printing"
        End Select
       
        If Result% <> PE_JOBCOMPLETED Then MsgBox TempText, vbInformation + vbOKOnly
       
    End If
       
    GoTo Avslutt
   
ErrorHandler:
    HourGlass False
    ShowErrMsg
Avslutt:
    PEClosePrintJob jobnum%

    HourGlass False
