Selecting paper size during report form printing

Selecting paper size during report form printing

Post by G. Takash » Mon, 16 Oct 2000 04:00:00


In FPW6, and using Epson 2180 dot matrix printer, I have problem in
setting paper.

The tractor form I'm going to use is 1/2 of that of a US Letter fanfold,
8.5" x 11",
with perforation at 5.5".

I could not find on the list of available paper size from the printer
driver, selecting
Custom-size also doesn't really helpful because it'll not print properly
something missing on the right of the report), however, if I print with
and set the desired paper size in page setup under file on the menu bar,
it then prints
the way I wanted.

What should I do in order to have it done automatically without any user
intervention of setting
paper size before the print? I would think that if the Epson printer
driver would include a paper
size of 8.5" x 5.5", then it should be OK, however, there isn't one on
the list.

Any input would be highly appreciated.



1. Printing reports always goes to 3x5 paper size

Within the past few days every time I run a report it
automatically goes to the custom paper size and sets itself to
3x5.  The setup is for 8 1/2 x 11 at the outset but I cannot
seem to override this setting when running reports.  

The only option I can think of is to reload the software.  Any

Other printing with other software seems to be ok.

The same database and reports work fine on another computer.
