    Re: VBA (Dunno - any version I suppose)

    I don't think I understand the problem. If the document you're sending to the printer (assuming we're talking about Word) is a single page, why would the printer print anything else? If the document is too large to print on a single page without scaling it to fit, the answer will depend on which application you're sending from. Are you talking about VB, one of the Office apps (like Word or Excel), an application like Visio, or something else?

    FYI, starting from the upper left of a Lounge screen, the Search link is one of the first 10 words you see. If it's really not there, well, we have a problem. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Re: VBA (Dunno - any version I suppose)

    The problem is as follows: some printers are set to default scale everything, others divide a print from 2 - 16 pages on the same sheet - thus making what's actually written on these pages having a pixelsize that sometimes are unreadable. I don't want that, I want to control what comes out.
    The form I'm currently having problems with is a receipt. After having clicked and written, then saving the document, I want the document to be readable when printed - this is not always the case.
    Anyway to control how the printer behaves, other than directly 'attacking' the printer that is?

    I think you are probably not going to be able to solve this problem.

    Many printer properties are specific to the particular model, and only that printer driver knows how to control them. Even picking the correct paper tray needs to be done on a printer specific basis - see for example the replies to <post#=217270>post 217270</post#>

    You could provide printer specific code for every printer that you know about, but that won't help if the user has a different printer.

    Just to make sure we haven't missed something essential: which application are you printing from. To me, for example, it sounds like you could be printing from Excel, but then I could be completely wrong. HTH

    I'm going to lock this thread and ask that any further responses be posted in the thread that starts with <post#=335475>post 335475</post#>, which is a continuation of this subject under a different username.
