I have a common dialogue box show up for the printing and when I print it goes there and I click ok then it says  "Run-time error '482'  Printer error"
Any ideas on why this is happening?

Ok, here's my code.  When I run it the printer box appears. Then I click ok to start the printing.  An error message appears saying "printer error". If I take out the 4 lines below with the asteriks and test the printer communication it works. Help!

Private Sub mnuFilePrintReport_Click()
Dim PageNumber As Integer
Dim LineCounter As Integer
Dim RecordCounter As Long

'print the report.
***cdPrint.Copies = 2
***cdPrint.filename = Trim(App.Path) & "/MyReport.txt"
***cdPrint.ShowPrinter
***Debug.Print cdPrint.Copies
 
'print something
  Printer.Orientation = 1
  PageNumber = 0
  LineCounter = 999
  datData.Refresh
  datData.Recordset.MoveFirst
  RecordCounter = 0
  Do While datData.Recordset.EOF = False
    RecordCounter = RecordCounter + 1
    If LineCounter >= 15 Then
      PageNumber = PageNumber + 1
      LineCounter = 0
      If PageNumber > 1 Then
        Printer.NewPage
      End If
      Printer.Print
      Printer.Print
      Printer.Font.Bold = False
      Printer.Font.Size = 9
      Printer.Font.Name = "Times New Roman"
      Printer.Print Tab(10); "Date"; Format(Now, "mm dd, yyyy")
      Printer.Font.Bold = True
      Printer.Font.Size = 12
      Printer.Font.Italic = True
      Printer.Font.Name = "Arial"
      Printer.Print Tab(40); "List of Divisions";
      Printer.Font.Bold = False
      Printer.Font.Italic = False
      Printer.Print Tab(100); "Page: "; PageNumber
      Printer.Print Tab(10); "Division"; _
        Tab(25); "Date"; _
        Tab(40); "Division"; _
        Tab(60); "Division"
      Printer.Print Tab(10); "ID"; _
        Tab(25); "Approved"; _
        Tab(40); "Manager"; _
        Tab(60); "Name"; _
        Tab(90); "Remarks"
      Printer.Print Tab(40); "Name"
      Printer.Print Tab(10); "--------------------------------------"; _
        "-----------------------------------------------------------"; _
        "-------------------------"
      Printer.Print
    End If
'Go back to the start of the record set
    Printer.Print Tab(10); Trim(datData.Recordset.Fields("Divisionid")); _
        Tab(25); Trim(datData.Recordset.Fields("Date")); _
        Tab(40); Trim(datData.Recordset.Fields("DivisionManagerName")); _
        Tab(60); Trim(datData.Recordset.Fields("DivisionName")); _
        Tab(90); Left(datData.Recordset.Fields("Remarks"), 40)
    LineCounter = LineCounter + 1
    If Len(datData.Recordset.Fields("remarks")) > 40 Then
        Printer.Print Tab(60); _
        Mid(datData.Recordset.Fields("remarks"), 41, 40)
        LineCounter = LineCounter + 1
    End If
    datData.Recordset.MoveNext
  Loop
  Printer.Print
  Printer.Print Tab(10); "Number of records: "; Format(RecordCounter, "#,##0")
  Printer.EndDoc
  datData.Recordset.MoveFirst
  txtDivisionID.SetFocus
  Exit Sub
 
End Sub

Could you send some code?... I think we need a little more information to help, otherwise any of us could say "... I tried it and worked fine..."

Well that might have been one thing but when I push print report on my menu it goes normal. It comes to the Dialogue box for the printer to choose how many copies, default printer... and when I push ok it says Printer Error and highlights the Printer.Orientation = 1 when I push debug.
