Hi,
 I just took a VB course (beginners) we did not do annything for printing.

Q. I want to be able to print what I have on my VB5 form using a button and menu.
Further...
 I would like to print the 8 text boxes on my form using the windows default CommonDialog (Printer) and have it display the windows default print window.

Thanks,
Ken McPherson

Can you be more specific. What do you want to print?  Did you say Access Database table,report or do you want to print the vb5 form?

You can print the form using PrintForm call. To select which printer to use, use the CommonDialog control (.ShowPrinter)
