You have to save your picture box to a bitmap. Using this bitmap, you can load it in another picture box, or even print to the printer.

SavePicture Image, "TEST.BMP"

Set Picture1.Picture = LoadPicture("TEST.BMP")

By the way, you can take a look to my web site, I have written an very good Print Preview OCX entirely in VB.

waty.. I tried what you proposed and just the graphic is transfered.  The text is still left in the original picturebox, but not transfered to the new Picturebox. Appears that the save isn't incorporating the text.
