Selecting Landscape Printing?

» close window

The Question is:

We have an HP laserjet 9000 series printer and
would like to print reports landscape mode,
132 characters. I've changed the internal
configuration to print landscape, but am
unable to get it to print 132 characters across. It only goes 80 characters and
truncates the rest of the report. How would I
go about doing 132 character print outputs?.
Thank you

The Answer is :

  The following topic is a keystone topic discussing printing and related
  topics, and will be of interest when working with printers: (1020)
  The following topics are some of the topics here in Ask The Wizard with
  the word landscape in the title: (5190), (6820), (8174), (8870), and
  various of these topics will be of interest.
  The usual connection to this printer is made via DECprint Services
  (DCPS) package (licensed with OpenVMS), and you will want to use the
  command PRINT /PARAMETERS specification, requesting LANDSCAPE printing.
  DCPS provides for both portrait and landscape printing capabilities,
  as well as other options.
