    Default printer (A97 SR2)

    For the reports on the system I'm working on there is a report toolbar which is opened when the report is previewed. When you click the print icon on the toolbar, it brings up the Print dialog box, but what I want it to do is print directly to the PC's default printer.

    So my question is, how do I find the default printer for the PC & set the toolbar icon property to print to it directly ?

    Thanks for your help, as always

    There are two Print buttons: one that displays the Print dialog, and one that prints directly to the default printer. Here is how to get the latter one onto your toolbar:

    Right-click the report toolbar and select Customize...
    Drag the print button away from the toolbar until a little cross appears next to the button, then drop it.
    Select the File category (in the Commands tab of the Customize window).
    Scroll down the list of commands until you see the Print button.
    Drag it to the toolbar, to the place where the original Print button used to be.
    Close the Customize window.

    As easy as that...thanks Hans. I thought I might have to get into the depths of PrtDevMode and the like, and I'm glad I didn't. Sometimes it's all there in front of you - you kust have to look.

    Thanks again for that quick hit.
