I'm used to create "applications" in MS-access. Recently I tried to make a program in VB (in wich i succeeded quiet well), but I didn't managed to create a very simple report (not using Crystal Reports!) just like in access. I created a child-form but the scrollbars didn't appear. When printing (print.form) only the visible part of the form was printed, and so on. Can I zoom in and out on a report (just like all office products)?

The question is rather easy, I suppose, but I realize I'm asking for a whole chapter of the basics of VB. Still I couldn't find the answers in books (they do not handle this subject!).

There's no way to do report other than using third party software like Crystal report.  Unles you want to code everything by yourself.  Printing the form is not realy a report engine.
