I am running Peachtree Accounting 2004, and I need to be able to set my
printer paper size to "Custom" so that I am able to correctly print payroll
and accounts payable checks that are 8.5 inches wide and 7 inches long. The
driver for the printer on my old Windows 98 machine has this custom paper
size option available, but it is not an option on Windows XP. I really would
appreciate any help or info that anyone has. Thank you.

You should contact Epson to see if they have a driver that does this on XP.

However, there's no guarantee that the custom page sizes were implemented
for XP drivers by either Epson or MS. You might try a Windows 2000 driver.

Hi,

If the built-in XP drivers did not support this feature, you cannot find any
support from Epson as the printer is quite old.

It is the time to look for a new printer.
