printer paper source control within foxpro 9 report

Is there a way to change the paper source on the fly within a report?  I have an application that involves printing a single report stream onto 2 different paper types, one a pre-printed form, and the other blank.  I have tried stringing reports with different source settings, as well as using the LoadReport event of the ReportListener class, but I haven't but I haven't been able to change the initial source selection after the first page prints.
This could be done in the old Fox 2.5 report engine by embedding the printer control commands, but I can't get it to run in any of the VFP versions.  I have high hopes for the new engine in version 9.
