PAPER TYPE for Printing (object??)

Through VB6 I asm trying to print to the bottom bin with a
paper type of LetterHead on an HP4200tn printer.

After much messing around with my bin issue, I finally
determined that if I keep the paper TYPE to PLAIN (on the
printer itself)... I can get the output to the correct
bin. However, I need the bottom bin to be exclusive
to this app. I physically set the paper TYPE to
LETTERHEAD, but I can not figure out how to set the PAPER
TYPE in VB so only this app will print to this bin.

To test this... I physically set the printer tray (bin)
type to be LETTERHEAD. I then opened wordpad (to print a
test) and when I went to print, I selected the paper
source tray to be tray 3... left the paper type to PLAIN,
and the output printed from tray two (2). I then through
wordpad went to print... I selected paper source tray to
be tray 3 again, but this time changed the paper type to
LETTERHEAD, and the output printed from tray three (3).
In conclusion, the system checks the paper TYPE then the
paper tray (it may even check the paper size first.. then
the paper Type, etc).

I did mess around with the paper size... but all trays are
using 8.5" x 11" paper....

Any help would be appreciated.

This is a VB.NET language group. You will more likely get an answer if
you post to one of the microsoft.public.vb.* groups.
