Do you just want a dump to the printer or formatting?

You might want to start with the printer object.

Hope this helps.

Here is the easiest way, assuming that you just want to print the total contents of a table:

Add a reference to Access to your project.  Select Project/References menu, select MS Access from the list.

Add the following code
(change Data.mdb to your Access file name, change Table to your table name)
  Dim accApp As New Access.Application
 
  accApp.OpenCurrentDatabase "Data.mdb"
  accApp.DoCmd.OpenTable "Table"
  accApp.DoCmd.PrintOut acPrintAll

The other way to do this is as follows:
(You'll need to make sure there is a reference to the data objects)

  Dim dbData  As Database
  Dim rsTable As Recordset
  Dim nCnt1   As Integer
 
  Set dbData = OpenDatabase("c:\mds\data\MDSTables.mdb")
  Set rsTable = dbData.OpenRecordset("Paste Errors")
  For nCnt1 = 0 To rsTable.Fields.Count - 1
    Printer.Print rsTable.Fields(nCnt1).Name; vbTab;
  Next nCnt1
  Printer.Print
  Do Until rsTable.EOF
    For nCnt1 = 0 To rsTable.Fields.Count - 1
      Printer.Print rsTable.Fields(nCnt1); vbTab;
    Next nCnt1
    Printer.Print
    rsTable.MoveNext
  Loop
  Printer.EndDoc

The code is working fine, but it is only the text from the tabel I am getting. I would like the linies also.

thanks for your help

I'm not sure what you mean by "linies".  Can you explain?

What I mean is that, I would like to see the printing as a tabel they way I do it in access. I hope you understand.
