Printing problem need help

P: n/a
Hi
I am stuck with a problem Can anyone help me out from this...

I am printing a report on pre-printed continue paper using dot-matrix
printer using vb.net.

Data is printing on all the locations. But

After printing first page it increase paper 3cm vertically/Height so on
second
page actual data goes down by 3 cm, So each time it increase 3 cm mean
on
second page its 6cm and on 3rd page 9cm so on.... So After printing the
first page on correct locations , data goes on different locations
which is complete mess.

please give any suggestion or any idea.

I am creating my own custom size page and setting the same for
printing.

Thanks
Sukh

Hi,

Why dont you use something like Crystal report to print it?

How are you printing your document, it's not clear from your email if it;s
the paper what change of size or if it's the pater the one that has
different sizes and your printing code does not recognize the new size.

Thanks Machin,
I am sending data to printer using drawstring. and I am printing on
continues paper using dot-matrix printer so all pages are same size so
there is no chance of different size of papers. and I am creating a
custom paper size to print the paper and printing using the same size
and it print the data on first page correctly.. but do't know how after
printing first page it increase the paper 3cm extra...
let me know if u need more details or I can send u code...
Thanks for responding...
