Take alook at this.  It should work (with minor changes) in CR9

i 've already checked this link.
it only works if the printer supports the user defined paper size which is not my case.
i am looking on how to use the crPaperUser constant and try to force the paper size from code.

I don't know of any method.  CR is very dependent on the printer driver.  

Take a look at

Do you know of a printer that will support the paper size?  If so is that printer close to the one you use so that its printer driver might work?

No idea.  I don't have CR9 so no help there.
