I have a old app. with vb6 and crystalreport 4.6.
in desing time a setup a report with custom paper size,
but in run time, the user can choose a printer from all available printers.
and the printer changes the paper size for the report.
my code is:
        With CrystalReport1
            .ReportFileName = app.path & "\report1.rpt"
            .PrinterPort = Prnt.Port
            .PrinterDriver = Prnt.DriverName
            .Action = 1
         End With

how can i do to maintain the custom paper size?
sorry by my question about old version for crystal repor.

Crystal is highly printer dependent.  The custom paper size is probably setup on only the one printer.  The only way would be to create the custom page size for all possible printers.
