Dotmatrix page length on XP

P: n/a
Hello everyone,
When printing from Acc97 Runtime on W98 the paper size to the default
printer should match the report, which is fine and everything prints
Ok. However in XP and Win2000 the paper size for the report appears to
read and the paper size in Server Properties is ignored. Only problem
is that the page eject is not right, it will advance by 6mm longer
than the report size. Not too bad for a single print but no good for a
batch print of 20 or so. Pages of 5", 6", 8" all move 6mm further
than they should.

Does anyone know why this is and is there any way that the page eject
length can be controlled. I've tried everything (I think) from setting
the Server Properties on the custom form to all sorts of sizes
(shorter & longer) and even trying the margins used when creating the
original report to no avail.

Help, ideas much appreciated as it's driving me mad.

Solution is use a generic printer driver, which may not be the same as
the printer in use. Solved it myself.
