If you are using Access 2003, i found this which should help you mate

        .Copies = 1
        .Orientation = acPRORLandscape
        .Duplex = acPRDPVertical
        .PaperBin = acPRBNAuto
        .PaperSize = acPRPSLetter
        .PrintQuality = acPRPQMedium

acPRPSLetter = 1 so the last comment should have worked too

Thanks Flavo.  I think my problem here relates to the fact that my default printer is not working.  I cannot see the properties of it because "the print spooler service" is not started.  once i change to a different, working default printer, it seems to work.
