How to turn off echo of 'print msg box' when doing docmd.openreport

100+
P: 167
I am using access 2000. I am running some reports using DoCmd.open 'ReportName' and after each, the box 'Printing' pops up. I am trying to turn this off as I do not want to display this message box after each report. I have tried Application.Echo = False and I still get the print message box. Is there any way to turn this off?
Thanks!

I found this in the Insights forum (for HowTos and Articles) so I've moved it for you and bumped it.

I would help but I have never tried this, nor can I think of a helpful set of google words to use. I'll have to see if one of the other experts can help you here.

The command you're actually talking about is "DoCmd.OpenReport" I suspect (as in the title, not the body). DoCmd.Open is not supported. I also had a quick check in the Help for you on this and there is no mention of disabling this display. I suspect this is simply a standard (non-configurable) effect of the method.

I am using "DoCmd.OpenReport rptname" in my code. What I am trying to find is a way to supress the print window that opens and displays when this code is run. I want that 'invisible' to the user.

Actually, other than the one slip-up, your question was pretty clear and understandable (Would that all were so).

This is just one of those situations where I can neither answer from my own experience, nor find anything helpful on the web for you. Sorry.

I too tried to search on the web and did not find an easy method to do this. Thanks for taking the time to look!
