Data Report in Landscape

Last Modified: 2010-05-02
I would like to print a Report using VB 6 Data Reports. Is it possible? My report is having many colums and the Width of the paper in the Portrait is not sufficient. If I try to increase the width, getting a error message saying Rêport width is greater than Paper width. Is it not possible to print in Landscape or a 130 column Dot Matrix Printer??
Thanks in Advance.

You need SP4 or SP5 to do it. see this article: http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q261193

Thank you emoreau . I have already installed SP5 but it created some problems like hanging the system when I tried to do some operations. So, I got to format the system to get rid of the SP5 for VisualStudio 6.
But the information given in that link has helped me to solve the problem and I am posting the comment to help others. I have done like this:
I have installed a dummy printer and set it as Default Printer and the page orientation for that Printer as Landscape. so now, I am able to get it in Landscape but not only that Report but all the other Reports running on that system will be printing in Landscape.
This is a temporary solution I found before I could identify why the system hangs sometimes after I install the SP5.
I will accept your comment as Answer after 2 days.. I want to leave this question Open for 2 days so that I can get suggestions from others.
Thank you very much!!
