We have this program that is printing out drawings from eDrawing or Solidworks, but each time we print there is a border printed around the page about 0.4 inched in on the paper.
I have attached the code used to print drawings.
Can someone please help me figure out if there is something in this code that is causing the drawings to be printed with a border around them?
Private Sub PrintJob(ByVal _DocumentNumber As String, ByVal _Scale As String, ByVal _printerDevice As String, ByVal _printerPort As String, ByVal _SheetSize As String, ByVal _PrinterSize As String)

        Dim PaperWidth As Integer 'Custom size in thousandths of an inch

Cant see anything in the code. What happens when you print them directly? Does it print with borders?
