Hi,
I'm using VB6 with access97,
I created a report and I want to print it.
The report width is larger than the paper width,
How can I change the printer's settings from my code, inorder
to change the paper orientation to landscape (during runtime only) ??
Thanx a lot!

Hi,

myReport.Show
This is the code that shows the report (simple as that), if my printer's orientation setting are not set
to landscape the report wont show, and I get an error that the report's
width is too large,
When the report is displayed there's a button that allows to print it, and this is
what i'm using to print the report,
( before I used
myReport.PrintReport True, rptRangeAllPages,
but I dont need this,)
thanks,
