Before isssuing the command PV.EndDocument prOTPrinter haw can I make the print setup be set to use Letter size paper? It always comes up as A4 which causes problems on some printers.

Printer to a inkjet printer having the A4 Paper Size doesn't seem to matter bu printing to either an HP or OKIDATA Laser printer it does matter.

Using any of these command does nothing for me:
PV.PageSize = prPSLetter
PV.PaperSize = prPSLetter

Does it make a difference if you issue the prPSLetter commands before or after you do your printing? I have those statements near where I send it my registration info, before I do any printing commands, and (as far as I know) it works fine...

Setting the PaperSize prior to printing worked. I didn't think that would do any good since setting the Font name and Fontsize at that point had no effect.

i think that set pv.papersize doesn´t effect the printer settings, just the preview values (twips values) of the page. So if true, the printer settings must be evaluated. (printer preferences advandced papersize)

emiel,

Setting the PaperSize before adding anything to the document does impact the Preview printer paper size. When you click on the printer icon in the preview window the paper size is affected. (Note that this only impacts printers that will honor the paper size selected)
