Hi Experts.    I just deleted a question that I got no response to so I am reposting it in much simpler terms.
When I go in to the properties of my Windows default printer, I can change the default printer preferences such as landscape/portrait etc.

I need to be able to do this through my code.

Changing the print document or page settings is not sufficient.  I need to be able to change the actual default settings as though I had changed the physically.    I have tried many options but none seem to have any effect

Any help appreciated.
