    Printing invoice in contiinous paper using USB Dot matrix printer

    I wish to print Invoice in Continuous statonery (Roll Paper ) width of paper 4 inches


    My problem , after printing one bill printer skips and giving lot of space between two bills. (Paper ejected after printing Bill ). My Requirement is printer must stop printing after completing Invoice. ( no gaps required ) and user tear off that bill and continue to print next Invoice.

    I am Using TVS RP 45 shoppe (USB DOT Matrix Printer).
    NOTE: I am not interested in Text file Printing (Print #1 ) method. In this I cannot use different Fonts and font size. I wish to print shop name and address printed in Big font.
    Please help me

    Code:
    Printer.Font = "Arial"
    Printer.FontBold = True
    Printer.FontSize = 12
    Printer.CurrentX = 3400
    Printer.CurrentY = 50
    Printer.Print " XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX "
    Printer.Font = "Arial"
    Printer.FontBold = False
    Printer.FontSize = 10
    Printer.CurrentX = 3400
    Printer.CurrentY = 350
    Printer.Print "  XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX  "
    Printer.CurrentX = cx - TextWidth(custdue)
    printer.CurrentY = cy + 300
    Printer.FontSize = 10
    Printer.Print Format(custdue, "00.00")
    cy = cy + 600

    Check your printer settings.

    There are usually settings for how much paper to feed for tear off

    Sometimes you can trick the Printer by setting a form length of ZERO (or 1) -
    Then when you have finished printing your Sale Docket, perform as many "print" statements so that the paper skips up to the tear-off point
