Getting correct copy count from Print Dialog box

I need to find a way to catch the parameters entered in the Print
Dialog box of any Windows application and pull the number of copies the
user selected. I know most printers allow the driver to control
multiple copy printing, however, there must be some structure that is
passed from the print dialog box to the driver.

I need this to accuratly track printer usage. I found a structure that
may be what is passed, but I don't know how to hook it. Any help would
be GREATLY appreciated.

The PRINTDLG structure contains information that the PrintDlg function
uses to initialize the Print Dialog Box. After the user closes the
dialog box, the system uses this structure to return information about
the user's selections.


typedef struct tagPD {
DWORD lStructSize;
HWND hwndOwner;
HGLOBAL hDevNames;
DWORD Flags;
WORD nFromPage;
WORD nToPage;
WORD nMinPage;
WORD nMaxPage;
WORD nCopies;
HINSTANCE hInstance;
LPARAM lCustData;
LPCTSTR lpPrintTemplate Name;
LPCTSTR lpSetupTemplate Name;
HGLOBAL hPrintTemplate;
HGLOBAL hSetupTemplate;

I designed a small app and I wanted to do a BrowseFolder (see http://www.mvps.org/access/api/api0002.htm), basically do a file open diaglog and select a directory/folder.

However, I put it onto a system that uses AccessXP. And it chokes on...
