Unwanted color printing

I wrote an application which generates printed output, some graphics, some text. Intention is to print in black.  One user reports that different parts of the printout get printed in various colors.  This surprized me, not being something I had considered.  How do I tell the printer object to print in black only?

Execute the following command before you begin printing:

Printer.ColorMode = vbPRCMMonochrome

This tells the printer to print in shades of gray instead of color. If the driver is for a color printer, it may default to printing in color, in which case the above code should fix it.
