Try something like this
if printer.currentX < 1000 then printer.currentx = 1000

If you are using the Printer object:

Use the Printer's scale properties to set margins. Set the properties so the position (0, 0) is mapped to where you want the margins. For example, the following code makes the left margin 0.5 inches and the top margin 0.75 inches. The factor of 1440 converts inches into twips.

Printer.ScaleLeft = -0.5 * 1440
Printer.ScaleTop = -0.75 * 1440
Printer.CurrentX = 0
Printer.CurrentY = 0

Printer.Print Me.Text1.Text
Printer.EndDoc
