SSRS 2005 Page Count is incorrect

I have a report written using SSRS 2005 where I have changed the margins to print in landscape mode. The issue I have is that a user can send a report to the screen and it will show page 1 of 10. However, when the user prints out the report it will print about 18 pages because on paper it is counting 11 x 8 1/2 as opposed to what was on the screen which was 8 1/2 x 11. So there are fewer lines per page when it prints as opposed to the screen. I see in SSRS 2008 there is a setting for landscape. Is there any way using SSRS 2005 to get the total page count when viewed on the screen to equal the total page count when printed.?

You mean to say even after setting the report as landscape, it prints in portrait style?

I do not see anywhere in SSRS 2005 to set the report to landscape. What I mean is that it does print landscape and when viewed on the screen it will say page 1 of 10, but when you actually print it takes 18 pages. I have changed the report properties to be 11 x 8 1/2.

Is this SQL Server 2005 or 2008? My page setup screen does not look like this. I am using VS 2005 BIDS. It must have been updated for VS 2008.

I had stated that the solution was needed for SQL Server 2005 and I was given a solution for 2008.
