I have a big recordset that retrieves many data from a few tables of my database.
When I select the first and last client of the client table from whom I wish to print invoices the program stops responding.
When I select just a few clients it prints allright.
I'm using a matrix printer and VB 6.0 with the print object.
Is the buffer of the printer to short for the amount of data?
Is the recordset to big?
Should I put those records in a temporary table and print each of a time instead of a recordset?

Thanks

Try using.. "Transaction"
BeginTrans,CommitTrans or you can try putting it in Type Record or Collection.

A Lot of reasons why your program stops responding it's because maybe you have a lot of procedures or your code has lots of workaround or you never closes an object "Set myvar=nothing" , try to simplify your code...
