You must match the paper (bill) form length in the printer and in the Windows printer driver, otherwise you will always get this problem using Windows. Can you match the printer paper length to multiples of the bill length?

Eg: If the Bill is 5.5" long and the printer can do a LETTER form (which is 8.5"x11"), then print TWO bills on one page in landscape format.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

You can't reverse the printer. Set the printer to LETTER/LANDSCAPE on the DIP switched/control panel and then you must try and print TWO bills on one logical page. Your code must follow the logic along these lines:

' Get billing information
' Do While some billing information left
   ' Initialise printer to LETTER / LANDSCAPE (11" x 8.5")
   Printer.Orientation = vbPRORLandscape
   Printer.PaperSize = vbPRPSLetter
   
   ' Print One Bill (in 5.5")
   ' Print Another Bill (in 5.5")
   PRINTER.ENDDOC
' Loop

You have to match your logical page length (i.e. what your program AND the Windows printer driver sends out) with the physical page length that the printer is set to (i.e. the length of the bills loaded AND what the DIP switches/control panel on the printer are set to).
