The easiest method would be to simply use the Print Method of the Object you want to Print.

Thanks.  I think this may be what I am looking for however I would first need to change the printer default at run-time to the fax.  I can add the commondialog box to my form so I can change printers.  Do I simply define the printer as the fax in the Print dialog box and then add the following to my form to change to my fax at run-time?  

frmForm.PrinterDefault = True

Private Sub cmdCommand1.Click()
   frmForm.PrintForm
   Printer.EndDoc
End Sub

then to convert back to the printer
   fraFrame.PrinterDefault = False ??
