"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can't. You will have to use some report engine, either the one which comes for example with VB6 or buy one like Crystal Reports from Seagate software or VsView from VideoSoft.

      'Call Access
       Set oAccess = New Access.Application
       Call oAccess.OpenCurrentDatabase(GetPath("PathEDI"))
       oAccess.DoCmd.OpenReport "EDIReport", acPreview
       oAccess.Visible = True
       'Report generated in Access
       RptGenerated = 1
Crystal Reports....yeugh!

Here is what you need, in VB go to Project -> References and make sure Microsoft Access Is checked.
this will print the report

    DoCmd.OpenReport "ReportName", acNormal, "", ""

this will preview the report

    DoCmd.OpenReport "ReportName", acPreview, "", ""
