    My application needs to support both A4 (210mm * 297mm)  and Letter (215.9mm * 279.4mm).

    One way to deal with this issue is to draw in an area of 210 * 279.4, so that it fits in both A4 and Letter.

    Using Telerik I set my report to this size and designed the report. When I tried to print it my printer did not print complaining that the size was not correct. I needed to set the report size to A4 for the printer to print.

    Is this a potential problem? If yes, how can it be resolved?

    Also, can you suggest any other way to be able to design in both A4 and Letter (short of designing two separate reports)

    Hi John,

    AFAIK, this is a printer settings issue and depending on the printer brand you may need to take a different resolution approach.
    For example, for an HP printer there is the 'Paper size or type is incorrect' Error Message Displays When Printing Custom Paper Sizes. The general idea is to either continue the interrupted print job, or to set a standard paper size to the report and then try printing once again.
