Is this a design or runtime question?

If it's a design time, can't you just press the crystal reports print button on the menu?

If it's runtime, try this:

Crpe1.ReportName := 'C:\Company.rpt';
Crpe1.Output := toPrinter;

if Crpe1.Printer.ShowPrintDlg then Crpe1.Execute
else ShowMessage('Printing Cancelled');

This is a sample Delphi code, just translate it to VB if you're doing it there ok?
