Access 2K MDE and Reports

P: n/a
I have an Access 2000 Application with about 300 reports It runs on win 98,
win 2000 and XP. The problem I am having is that my users can have any
printer there are over 5000 of them. In Access 97 I did not have a problem.
Having moved to Access 2000 I am having problems with Win 2000 and XP. The
problem comes in when some one prints a report based on a custom paper size
it always prints on letter size paper. for example a single column dot
matrix mailing label prints on a letter size sheet. I have tried setting the
reports to the default printer and I have defined a printer called
"MyPrinter" and it will work on the development system. When I go to another
system and define the same printer with the same name it comes up letter. I
need to know how to make it use the custom paper sizes. I have routines that
use the CreateForm and SetForm API to create the form on the printer. The
printer drivers are installed locally. Any advice or ideas would be greatly
