Smartform batch print - page format issue

I am creating a smartform in a batch job and sending it to various printers throughout our company. The form is going to the printer but it attempts to print in the A4 (DINA4) page format. I have the smartform set to print (under the Form Attributes -> Output options tab) in Letter format though.

I am passing output_options to the smartform FM. The field that I am setting is the printer (output_options-tddest). output_options is of type ssfcompop. I would imagine that page format would be a field in that structure but I can't find it. Do you know of any other way to change the page format in a batch job via ABAP code?

      The field in the ABAP code is output_options-tddest (that gets filled with the 4 character printer code) and the following:

      output_options-tdimmed = 'X'. "Print immediatly

      output_options-tddelete = 'X'. "Delete after printing

      In the Smartform I went to the Form Atributes page and selected the page format on the output options tab. Then when I created the batch job in SM36 I added a step (an ABAP program) and assigned a printer to that step.
