Need Macro to Auto reset Printer Settings in Word

P: 1
I do Tech Support but do not know Visual Basic programming. In order to resolve a work process issue for one of our depts I need a macro that can do the following. I tried to create a macro in Word but it didn't work to reset the printer settings.

Click on File then Print
Click on Properties to get to the Printing Preferences and under
Printing Shortcuts select
Letterhead Setting then
OK and OK again.



Then I need a second macro to do:

Click on File then Print
Click on Properties to get to the Printing Preferences and under
Printing Shortcuts select
General Everyday Printing then
OK and Close

Did you ever get a reply to your query?

I don't know what program you are working in, but assuming it is, say Word 2003, you can create a macro by going into:

Tools
Macro
Record new macro - create a name without spaces or special characters
A macro tool will appear in you document (which can be blank)
Then step through the process as if you are doing the steps for real.
Once you hit the last OK button you then click on the close macro button and it is done.

Test the macro to make sure it works, then once you are happy with it, you can set up as many printing macros as you like...the only thing is you can stop the macro mid way through the printing process...you have to go right to the send to printer stage for the macro to work.

Then one you have your macros you can then decide to create buttons to put onto your menu bars to make life that little easier.

Good luck.
