I  have 2 printers attached to my machine, (LPT1: and LPT2:). How do I print to LPT2? I do not want to use Open# and Print# statements.

Loop thru the Printers collection until you find a printer that meets your requirements:

e.g.

Dim p As Printer
For Each p In Printers
    If (p.Port = "LPT2:") And (p.DeviceName Like "*LaserJet*") Then
        ' Set printer as system default.
        Set Printer = p
        Debug.Print Printer.DeviceName
        ' Stop looking for a printer.
        Exit For
    End If
Next
