Pring in a smaller size

P: n/a
I am developing a database for my client. I have no problem in printing
an invoice in a A4 size paper. My problem is printing a cash sale in a
size of 2" wide and 3" long.
What command do I give to access to recognize this size or
alternatively how do I set the size of paper to print as 2" wide and 3"
long. Any other suggestions are welcome.
Thanking you all in advance

While designing the report choose File > Page Setup > Page, and select
your page size from the dropdown.
If no suitable one found, select Printing Preferences from your
Printer under Control Panel, and you may be able to specify a custom
size.

Although this may be the size of the detail section, are you really going to
put 2" x 3" pieces of paper into the printer?

I am afraid yes, the client is suggesting to use a short descritption
name for product. I tried it in an A4 size paper. it works but now
client wants to buy a small impact printer for use in printing cash
sales, he claims that will save him a lot of money in the long run.
According to his estimation, using an A4 size will cots him 30
shillings as compare to using smaller size printer which will cost him
6 shillings.

Have you considered treating the print as a label? You can print on
label sheets quite easily - and 'skip' positions if you've already
printed there.
