Printing labels has a glitch

Ron
Hi All,

I've got a report that prints mailing labels. It utilizes a routine that
asks the number of labels to skip, the number of each label to print, and
then prints. It works really well on a print preview. But,when I print to
the printer it disregards the number of labels to skip.

I preview all the reports I've got and then have a little printer icon to
click on if the user wants to actually print (my attempt at saving trees).
Every other report I've got shows the preview, and then prints successfully
to a printer in a format identical to the preview. So, why would my label
program not print that way? If I choose to skip 5 labels, on the preview it
does...but the printer starts at the top left corner of the page, almost
every time. Sometimes, depending on how many I ask it to skip it'll show up
fine on the preview, but then it'll skip 2 on the printer...but it's never
what I asked for.

So, I guess my question would be why would it work on the preview, and not
on the actual printing? Without posting all the code, modules, etc...can
anyone think of a reason for this?

TIA

My guess is that you have to tell it how many to skip when you click the
little printer icon.

It's difficult to reply because you haven't shared with us the code or
method used to input the number of label positions to skip. We're not
mind readers, especially on Mondays... :-)

I would suspect that somewhere between opening the Report in preview,
and printing it, you have code that is closing the form that asks for
the input of how many records to skip.

I'm glad you agree. Your post was totally useless and just another one of
your misguided attempts to post your sigline. If you had passed grade 2
English, you would have noticed it was NOT the same as FredG's post.

There was nothing wrong with FredG's post. He indicated that more
information was required, you just parroted what the OP said.

My program right now generates USPS style shipping label using System.Drawing.Graphics. It works fine except that the printer prints really slowly.

Still, barcode info needs to be sent as an image. When I print fifty copies of the same label it prints really...

I C# code prints very slow as compared to a third party barcode printing software. That software prints approximately 10 labels in 2 seconds while my C# code prints 10 labels in 5 to 6 seconds. And this differences increases with the increase number of labels. The code is as follwods: Here rdr = OleDbDataReader Font is Times New Roman, 12pt
