1. I've used W2000 and you can't do the "Printer.PaperSize = 256". So, If you want it to be usable on both systems then you need to code in an error trap:

   Printer.ScaleMode = vbInches
   Printer.ScaleHeight = 11
   Printer.ScaleWidth = 8

   On Error Goto PaperErr
   Printer.Papersize=256
   On Error Goto <your original error handler>

   Printer.EndDoc
   Exit Sub
   
<your original error handler>:
   Exit Sub
PaperErr:
   If Err.Number = 380 Then Resume Next
   Resume <your original error handler>
   
2. It'll only mean centimetres if you do:
   Printer.ScaleMode = vbCentimeters
