Sorry for the brief answer:

In a Form module, to print the actual form
PrintForm

In any module to print any form
FormVariable.PrintForm

I tried a version using the paintpicture method....
Capture the form as a picture ..... then use printer.paintpicture.

From WATY...

Johnn: As promised I checked your solution .... It needs alittle more work to do with the window's handle .... If u took the get window handle code from waty ...It'd probably work...

No offense but... waty has some of the best written code around...

Maybe so...I was only doing it off the top of my head.  I never actually tested it(I leave this up to the questioner as I'm not being compensated for it(at least financially) as well as I beleive they need to "do it" themselves to really learn and understand the solution.

Thats one way to look at it .... but API programming is difficult at the best of times..... As I understand... using standard modules is a common time saver for programmers..

In any case .... pgg refer to http://www.experts-exchange.com/Q.10118894 for the capture codes.....
