I am having a hard time getting a report to print to a Brother QL-1060N printer. The printer is using a 1 1/7" wide label roll that can print any length of label and it cuts when finished. Because it is 1 1/7" wide, everything is printed in landscape so that it is laid out properly on the label. However, since the label is longer than it is wide, it is technically Portrait orientation.

 

I have been trying every possible combination of printer settings for PaperSize = 1.14x3.54 or 3.54x1.14, Landscape property of the report = True/False, etc. When I send the report to the printer, it just kills the printer (flashing red light on printer, need to be reset). That error usually indicates an incorrect paper size sent to the printer. I am able to print a test page from Windows in both Portrait and Landscape orientation, but as yet, I have not been able to get anything to successfully print to the Brother printer from a report. Any guidance would be much appreciated!

Unfortunately, my solution was to use a different printer. The way that the Brother QL-1060N didn't seem to want to cooperate with my needs.
