Printing To Network Printers

P: n/a
I need to print work requests to a network printer not the default printer.
I thought I could tie a macro to a button on the form which would direct the
print output to the newtork printer in question. Just don't seem to see how
I should do it. Any assistance would be most welcome.

You'll need some VBA code.

You can change the default printer using updates to the INI file and some sample
code. See DefaultPRT.ZIP at http://www.mcwtech.com/downloads.htm

Finally you can use DevPrtMode however this requires extensive VBA knowledge and is
not for the faint of heart. Also this won't work in MDEs as you must open reports in
design mode although you can use Automation to open a reports MDB and manipulate it
there.
