add a custom paper size

I needed a custom paper size in word, I could set the size in word but not
for the printer so; I tried to add a custom paper size to my printer(s) by
going to the printer properties and preferences found the stock sizes but
could not add a new custom size.
Searched the KB found #838298 which said I needed to be an administrator,
I'm logged in as the administrator. 838298 went on to say must have SP 2 well
I do have SP2.
So How do you add a new custom paper size to my printer? I have two laser
and dot matrix printers and cannot add a custom size to any of them.
Thanks
Terry

Re: add a custom paper size

You should probably post to a printer newsgroup where they can help with
configuration of your specific printer. You would need to supply the printer
models, operating system, whether they are networked or not, if you are
using a special paper tray, etc.

Usually on home printers, you can just tell it to use the manual feed, and
that's about all you have to do to let Word know. But you'll need to
provide more details to get specific help.

Paper and page settings are usually handled by Word (or the application),
where printer settings are handled by Windows and the printer driver.
