Here a solution :

dim rs     as RecordSet
dim nI     as integer
dim sData  as string

gsSeparator = " | "

set rs = DB.OpenRecordSet("Select * from Table")

Do while rs.EOF=false
   sData = ""
   For nI = 0 To rs.Fields.Count - 1
      sData = sData & CStr(record.Fields(nI)) & gsSeparator

   if Len(sData) > 0 then
      sData = Left(sData, len(sData) - len(gsSeparator))
   end if

   printer.print sData



Otherwise, you could use my Print Preview. You can find it on my web site. It can generate reports based on a database.
