VB6 Direct Printing

I'm trying to print directly from VB6 using the Printer object.  The printing is going onto a pre-printed form, so positioning on the page has to be exact.

The problem is that co-ordinate position (0,0) does not seem to correspond to the top-left corner of the paper.  Instead it appears to be offset by about 7mm horizontally and 5mm vertically.  I presume that this relates to the printer's printable area, though that's a guess.

The printer that I'm currently testing with is a Kyocera 1000+ laser, but the eventual solution will need to work across a variety of printers.

Yes you're right on that point.  Most of the printers have a margin of their own. It's a not-editable hardware specification.
I think you can expect that most printmargins are minimal 1 cm on each side.
