Crystal Report Print report on different paper size (A4/Letter)


I develop the crystal report 2008 with 2008. The report runs on web.

when I preview or debug with VS on my local computer, the crystal report using A4 (8.3 * 11.7 in), Which is correct.

However, after I deploy the program to the server, and try view and print report through IE, the print out is actually using Letter size (8.5 * 11 in).

Both on my local computer and the server, the default printer is set to A4 size. And on the crystal report, in the printer setup, the paper size is A4 as well.

I try on firefox, and safari. No luck. Same as IE.

The crystal report need to print barcode, and the paper size must be A4, cuz the barcode page is designed and printed on A4 Avery Laser Barcode sheet.

I tried on my PC by using remote server data souce, the printing works perfectly in A4 size (8.3"*11.7").

And I don't know why same program after deploy to the server, then it using Letter size (8.5" * 11"), which the size I never set to.

So strange.
