Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape

This article in MSDN:
FIX: Error Message "Report Width is Larger Than the Paper Width" When Showing Data Report in Landscape (Q261193)

Appears to have your solution and I quote:

Microsoft Visual Studio 6.0 Service Pack 4 introduces a new property called Orientation for Data Report. The value for this property is:

rptOrientDefault = 0
rptOrientPortrait = 1
rptOrientLandscape = 2
With this property, you are able to tell the Data Report not to use the orientation setting of the default printer in the Printers Folders. Following is the syntax for implementing the Orientation property:

DataReport1.Orientation = rptOrientLandscape
DataReport1.Show

nealy forgot, if you need to change the orientaion when you have finished then use.

Printer.Orientation = vbPRORPortrait

that will return it back to portrait.


hope this helps

Changes between landscape and portrait mode for a printer

make a command button on a form




Sub Command1_Click ()
    Const PORTRAIT = 1
    Const LANDSCAPE = 2
    Const GETSETPAPERORIENT = 30
    Dim Orient As OrientStructure
    Printer.Print "" 
    Orient.Orientation = LANDSCAPE
    x% = Escape(Printer.hDC, GETSETPAPERORIENT, Len(Orient), "", Null)
    Print x%
End Sub

cheers
