Default printing problem

I am unable to set the paper size attribute in DataReport, because of which I am unable to print with larger width using dotmatrix printer.
I tried setting the printer attributes, it didn't help.

Error Message "ReportWidth larger than PaperWidth."

Please help

We have had to create a new printer in the operating system with a wide paper such as USSF (US Standard Fanfold) as the paper size to solve this kind of problem. Even printing on 8.5 paper at compressed print we had to do this because of the number of columns to be printed.

I too installed larger printer "Printronix P5000 series" and set it as the default printer, but the program still complains.
