Visual Basic 6 Data Report

I have a procedure in Visual Basic 6 that would print a report  using a data report.
The data report was designed to fit in a LEGAL SIZE PAPER ONLY, but what if the user's current paper size of its default printer was set to something different, lets say something shorter in size. The report would then come out different and thats a problem in our case.

Is there a way i can change the  paper size of the default printer (or other properties like paperquality and etc.) using Visual Basic ?

Thanks in advance...

Im sorry but this one only works if using Printer.print command, but since im using a data report this has no effect on changing paper size. Thanks a lot.

So, Instead of using Data Report and then have VB change its papersize to legal or letter, i found another more easy solution. I use Crystal Report and then use the following to change its papersize.  AND IT WORKS !!!

   If app Is Nothing Then Set app = CreateObject("Crystal.CRPE.Application")
   Set rpt = app.OpenReport(crystalreport file)
   
    rpt.PageSetup.paperSize = mypaperSize                **** SOLUTION *******
    Set m_crwView = rpt.Preview(windowtitle, 0, 0, 1155, 800, 0, 0)
