    My guess is that this works on machines that have the dot matrix printer driver installed but doesn't work when the dot matrix printer is not installed on that machine. Is this correct? Crystal uses printer drivers to figure out the layout of the page. You have 2 options that I can think of. That custom size won't be available on machines that don't have that printer installed. You have one of two options that I can think of:

    1. Make sure that printer is installed on every machine that your application is running on.

    2. Create the report with the "no printer" option. This creates the report with the default print driver that crystal uses internally. This may not work if your custom size isn't supported by this option.

    If these don't work you may want to try and contact support.
