I once saw a message that stated there is a control that will allow VB to print ACCESS reports. Does anyone know where I can find this control? I would like to try it out.

schworak,

       Here is a  3rd party control that will do it. The cost is $149.00 but there is a demo version you can download and try.
       The web address is http://www.videosoft.com.  If you have access in your computer, you can use OLE automation.

 Best wishes

       Here is their description:

       VSREPORTS moves you into a new era of reporting! VSREPORTS allows you to
                            print Microsoft Access created reports without having Access or its runtime DLLs
                            installed on the user's machine. This ActiveX control permits you to use the industry
                            leading report designer Access to create your reports and the print them using Visual
                            Basic or any ActiveX container.

                            Print Access reports from Visual Basic! Place a vsReport ActiveX control on your
                            form, set a few properties, and presto! Your Access report is ready to be previewed
                            or printed!

                            VSREPORTS re-creates Access reports reproducing the exact positioning of fields
                            and page breaks, fonts, colors, sorting, and filtering into groups and sections, just as
                            in the original report.

                            VSREPORTS supports all Access Report writer features including Visual Basic for
                            Applications (VBA) expressions, aggregated fields, and watermarks. Multi-Column
                            and parameterized reports are supported as well. You can even output them to an
                            HTML file to be published on the Web. The vsReport control dynamically reads data at
                            runtime from an Access database or any ODBC database such as Oracle or Sybase.
