Printer.EndDocument


' *** Open the SGML file
nSgmlIn = FreeFile
Open sSgmlCurrent For Input Access Read As #nSgmlIn
sSgmlIn = ""
Do While EOF(nSgmlIn) = False
   Line Input #nSgmlIn, sTmp

NB: I forgot to tell you to manage the skip to new pages.

Do as follow :

nMageHeight = Printer.Height - Printer.ScaleHeight

' *** Open the file
nSgmlIn = FreeFile
Open sSgmlCurrent For Input Access Read As #nSgmlIn
Do While EOF(nSgmlIn) = False
   Line Input #nSgmlIn, sTmp

   If Printer.CurrentY > Printer.Height - nMageHeight then
      Printer.NewPage
   End If

   printer.print stmp
Loop
Close #nSgmlIn

Printer.EndDocument
