Hi,

i have made a project for printing fee receipt. Using Windows-XP, VBasic 6.0 & Ms-Access-97. i have designed a form for prinring receipts. m paper-size is 5x10. Two copies of bills in this size. one for student and other for fee clerk. while printing on dot-matrix, form get printed, but size is A4. My problem is

* after printing on this size, stop the printer and not to eject
* Restarting fee receipt printing for next student on paper.

I think you should try playing with the properties of the Printer object in VB. It has properties like PaperSize, PaperBin and so on, which are probably relevant to your situation.

How u print the data through printer? using print #1 method or printer.print method?. If ur data is in english language, u will not get any problem, try print #1 method, open LPT1 (connect yr printer in LPT port) in write mode and transfer the data through print #1 method, everything will work, u will get speed and control over printer.

You can code like this,
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  
  2. On Error GoTo ErrTrap
  3.        Open LPT1 For Output As #1
  4.         Write #1, PrintString1
  5.         Write #1, PrintString2
  6.     Close #1
  7. 'exit method
  8. ErrTrap:
  9.     MsgBox Err.Description, vbCritical + vbOKOnly
  10.  
Pass PrintStrings between paper size.

Thanks about your response ...
But there is more complicate situation on my form.
I have data in subform and mainform, for example:

On mainform:
---------------------------------------------------------
Date: 08/13/2009 Name: Andrew
---------------------------------------------------------
On subform:
---------------------------------------------------------
Item 1
Item 2
Item 3
...
...
---------------------------------------------------------

What kind of syntax that i can use for that situation? (print #1 method or printer.print method)

Actually I already have the report for that form but the problem is the printer can't be stop eject after print for last line on dot matrix printer then make long distance from last line to end of paper size. Can I just stop the printer eject after the last line with VBA?
