Printing Labels

P: n/a
Hi,

I'm converting an existing VB/Access app into an ASP.Net Intranet app. Most
of the conversion is pretty straight forward - except the printing! The old
app prints mailing labels on Avery stationary - but I can't see how I can
replicate this from the ASP...

Any ideas on how to do this? Conversion into Word/Excel (we have v2003) is
ok, as long as its seamless for the users.

Thanks

Nick

Nick,

The printing from ASP.NET is done by the browser, your application has no
control over it at all.
What you can do is create a document that you know will be handled by an
application with richer printing capabilities, like .pdf or .doc
I do something like this, when I need to print something I use Crystal
report to create a report then I export it to pdf and is this pdf what I
send to the client.

Cheers,
