Is it possible to specify what printer to use in vb code

P: n/a
Hi

I have an on click event in my acces 2000 database which open word and
prints a mail merge document.

This action is hidden and prints several copies of the document without
the user ever seeing word.

Is it possible to specify which printer is used as the document has to
be printed on a printer that is no longer computer defualt printer.

I don't really want to have to change it so that the users need to see
the word document and select the correct printer everytime.

Thanks for any help.

See if this link will assist. I've used Albert Kallal's Get/SetPrinter
with great results. http://allenbrowne.com/AppPrintMgt.html
