Printer Object

Is there an easiest way to align each column not using currentx while extracting files from a database and outputted to a hard copy that uses printer object and by not using spaces or tabs to align columns.

You can use the rset method with a fixed width font, ie

Set the printer object's font to Courier and then use something like :

    sBuffer = space$(32)
   
    Rset sBuffer = myrecordset!mystring

    printer.print sBuffer

Rset effectively right aligns once string into another string.
