Printer Dialog problems!!!!

Hello Experts!

I am having some trouble implementing the printer dialog box into a program of mine.  My program needs to print information onto an unusual paper size and some of the users that have tested the program have complained about their printer not printing on the page correctly.  I tried to use the printer dialog box to allow users to choose their settings but for some reason when the user clicks "OK" the printer prints on its own settings regardless of the settings the user selected.  Here is some example code....  Am I doing something wrong??
<---Begin Code--->
cdlprint.showprinter
printer.papersize=cdlprint.papersize
printer.orientation=cdlprint.orientation
printer.copies=cdlprint.copies
frmmain.printform
printer.enddoc
</---End Code--->
