As the 8340 is a POS printer you will need to set up a report in access that fits the available page size.  Presumably you already have the drivers (http://www.starmicronics.com/printers/printers_pages/support/drivers.html).

Suggest you start by setting up a page that fits the output paper size in Word so you can get used to the margins and what you can & can't get away with.  Then design a basic report page in Access which fits the same paper size.
