Hi,

I am using a POS system I wrote 2 years back in Access 2000

I have acquired a thermal receipt printer for my POS program. It prints on a 80mm wide strip of thermal paper. It's drivers offer certain paper sizes and cut options which Access 2000 does not seem to like. I get a message "cant print or preview because the page size you selected is larger than 22.75 inches", which it isn't I gather from hours of googling, this a default error message for page sizes that are not supported by Access.

I gather the solution to my problem is in a VBA module, but I have no idea how to fix this. Any Help will be greatly appreciated.

I gather this is what I need, but have no idea how to modify this to suit a "page" of 80mm x 3276mm (roll length).
