VBA coding a Custom Paper Size

  Asked By: Hondo    Date: Nov 21    Category: MS Office    Views: 4172
  

I have an invoicing program that prints Sheet 1 on 8½" x 7"
invoices to a dot-matrix (DM) printer. Another part of my program
will print Sheet 2 on 8½" x 11" to a laser printer.

It works great, but here's the problem . . . After I print Sheet 2 to
the laser printer and then go back to print the invoices on the DM
printer, the DM automatically selects it's default custom paper size
of 1" x ½" which is no good. Anyone know how to code in the custom
paper size of 8½" x 7" before it prints ?

Here's what I've got so far:
Sheet1.PageSetup.PaperSize = xlPaperUser

Or is it possible to change/create a new paper size in the registry
for this DM printer driver ?

Have you read the articles that Jonathan West wrote on controlling the printers
via VBA (for Word?) In glancing through the code, I did not see anything that
triggered "WORD ONLY" to me, so you may want to check these out for at least
some idea's.
