Setting User Defined Paper Sizes

Does anyone know how to set user defined paper sizes for and Epson LQ570E
Printer under Windows XP Prof?
The driver does not allow for user defined paper sizes.. So setting them
from a report property, or through paper selection seems to be out of the
question..
I have repeatedly sent e-mails to Epson, but they offer no solutions. (All
the references show the simple method when the driver shows the user defined
as one of the choices)

I need to print tractor feed checks that are 8.5 by 7 Inches. All the
printer wants to do is 8.5 x 11, or other envelope and odd sizes.

I know others have had this problem, and I thank anyone who can help.

If this is Access 2002 or 2003, you could set the PaperSize property of the
Printer object to the constant acPRPSUser, i.e.:
Printer.PaperSize = acPRPSUser

For earlier versions, it kinda messy. See:
