ga,
you use the same code to send your stuff to the printer, such as Printer.Print myText...
Printer.EndDOc is to terminate the printing operation and do a form feed (like a printer.Newpage).  You can use Printer.EndDoc when you do want to have a new page (or your printing job end).

When I don't use the printer.enddoc statement nothing is printed
until I close the application.
the printer data will be send to the printer after the
printer.enddoc statement, or when the application is closed.

ga,
That is the limitation of VB.

However, you can still use theold DOS GWBAsic type of commend to print line by line.


            Open "PRN" For Output As #1

            Print #1, YourStuff
