printing a report with copies

This is tricky.  I've used DoCmd.PrintOut acPages, 1, 1, acMedium, 3 in the on activate event of a report.
The form that executes the printing of the report has two buttons, preview and print.  I want the report to print 3 copies of the report when the print button is clicked,And only preview when the preview is clicked. Each button executes the docmd  DoCmd.OpenReport "rptOrders", acViewNormal  and preview , respectfully.  I set up a variable that is set from each button_click that initializes to 1 or 0 depending on the button.  this is passed to the report and the activate event has an if statement that checks for 0 and executes the DoCmd.PrintOut acPages, 1, 1, acMedium, 3  but this doesn't work.  

any ideas on how to do this effectivly.

hi,

I assume you have a list box that lists the report names on your form.  If I understand your question you can do this.

Have a form with the name of a report in a text box.
have a preview button called preview.
have a print button called printcmb


the on click event of the preview you can do this:

private sub preview_click

docmd.openreport reportname",acpreview
end sub

private sub Printcmb_click

dim i
for i=1 to 3
docmd.openreport "reportname"
next
end sub

this will work for you

This is fine but how does the docm.printout acpages,1,1,,2 thing work.  This should control the printing of a report, do you know how and where this action should be used.  meanwhile I'll use the for loop.  thank you.
