Adjust Paper width and printer option in VB6 DataReport

How can I change the page width of the DataReport and also make it print directly to the printer instead of the screen first?

At this point we have problem that we can' increase the width to print it Landscape and keeps giving me error:

---------------------------
Error
---------------------------
Report width is larger than the paper width
---------------------------
OK  
---------------------------

To print directly instead of display on screen
do not use datareport.show
but

datareport.PrintReport
While datareport.AsyncCount > 0
      DoEvents
Wend

The loop with the doevents must be added else if you print other reports directly after, you will get missing pages. (some pages will not be printed) So add the loop directly after the printreport.

To avoid you report width error, try setting the printer you want to use as default printer before calling the report.

I have the lates SP6.

Thanx "DataReport1.Orientation = rptOrientLandscape" worked.

Is that the only option for width, just the orientation?  

I mean what if I need to print to a receipt printer which is 4", that is 40 column.  Is there a way to work with that?
