Pick a specific printer

P: 39
I already know how to make a report pick a specific printer from within DESIGN mode. What I want to know is how can an end user using an application program(mdb) can pick a specific printer for a specific report. Thanks- Ken.

Hi Ken. If you set your reports to open in Print Preview mode users can select the printer they require from the standard print dialogue box when they print the previewed report (using File, Print to do so). Pressing the print button directly instead will print to the default printer.

Hi Stewart. That works GREAT!!! But when I then turned that same .mdb into a .mde that method you suggested stopped working. Is there another method for a .mde? Thanks -Ken.
