When I call Report, it is printed acording to the Printer's default page setup.
i.e If Report Page setup is A4 and formated accordingly and Printer default page setup is also A4, it works fine
BUT if Printer default Page setup is Letter, it prints to letter and remaining info is trincated. If user tries to change Page, report margins get disturbed.

Is there any way to setup page runtine.

No, this is not possible. You have to design two different Reports for the two different formats.
The reason is that the size of the Layout section of the reports is hard coded and
the placement of the fields is sensitive to the size of the Layout.
