I have a database with 10 fields (fd1, fd2, fd3 etc.) and I want to print the first 3 fields from a record in a DBGrid. I wrote Printer.Print DBGrid1.Columns("fd1").Text, DBGrid1.Columns("fd2").Text, DBGrid1.Columns("fd3").Text
When I run the program, I get the first field printed out 3 times, i.e. fd2 and fd3 do not print. Can someone help me work out why this occurs?

JMaher,
Your problem is that you did not specify the field that you want to print. By default, the col and row properties are set to Zero. This is why you only getting the first filed to be printed three times. What I suggest is that you specify the row number of the fields and then try to print the columns. You can do that by simply:
DBGrid1.row = 0 'To print the first column
DBGrid2.row = 1 'To print the second column
and so on...

I hope that answer your question.
Regards

I tried doing what was suggested (using Col rather than Row, a typo I guess), but then I got no printing at all. I amm actually using a picture box to simulate the printer. I have been told by someone else that the syntax I used in my question is correct, and when I told him of my problem he could suggest no answer. He said that he uses this syntax and it works fine. I am at my wits end.

If you use a dbgrid wich is link to a data control then use the data control recordset.

Each row is link with a record, so if the user select a record the recordset corresponds to this row.

fd1 =  data1.recordset!fd1
use the recordset to print.

I am sorry, I must be missing something important here. I have linked my DBGrid to a table in a database, and the DBGrid shows all of the records within the table. I just want to print the first 3 fields in the first record, but I keep getting only the first field printed 3 times. I am unable to understand the answer proposed. Please clarify.
