The Microsoft KB describes in article Q168749 how to print the
mschart control.

This is a slightly modified version of the Microsoft Example, using metafiles that will better the output quality.

' This function prints MSChart1 to the default printer.
Sub PrintChart()
    Dim mPic As StdPicture
   
    ' Fill the clipboard with data
    MSChart1.EditCopy
   
    ' Get picture from clipboard
    Set mPic = Clipboard.GetData(vbCFMetafile)
   
    ' Print the picture
    Printer.Print " "
    Printer.PaintPicture mPic, 0, 0, MSChart1.Width, MSChart1.Height
    Printer.EndDoc
   
    ' Remove ref to picture
    Set mPic = Nothing
End Sub
