Make sure you set CancelError to true

Either use On error resume next or On error goto to trap errornumber 32755 (Cancel selected)

Example:

CommonDialog1.CancelError = True
On Error Resume Next

CommonDialog1.ShowPrinter
If Err = 32755 Then 'Cancel pressed
  'Do what you want, but don't print
Elseif Err=0 then
  'Print
Else
  'There was another error
End If

I admit the example is not the recommended way to program, but it is meant to give you an idea of how to determine that Cancel was pressed.
