Printer Wont print till exit

When i goto print my hplj5 just waits until i exit the program ? Prints fine once printed any suggestions? I thought printer.newpage was like a page feed  was i wrong?
Also i noticed that the date structure doesnt always work. Sometimes the date will be within the two dates i chose in other part of program but they dont print out .



Private Sub Command1_Click()
Set Printer = Printers(0)
TODAYSDATE = Date
Debug.Print daysago
Open "u:\compfold\SAVEDATA.TXT" For Input As #1
For x = 1 To 100
If EOF(1) Then GoTo gohere3
Input #1, TECHS(x)
Input #1, CUST(x)
Input #1, TIMEIN(x)
Input #1, TIMEOUT(x)
Input #1, TIMELEAVE(x)
Input #1, DATES(x)
Input #1, phone(x)
Next
gohere3: Close #1: HOWMANYFILESOPENED = x
For x = 1 To HOWMANYFILESOPENED
 If DATES(x) >= Text1.Text Then
  If DATES(x) <= Text2.Text Then
     Printer.Print TECHS$(x), CUST(x), , TIMEIN(x), , TIMEOUT(x), TIMELEAVE(x), DATES(x)
 End If
 End If
Next
Printer.NewPage

You neglected a Printer.EndDoc statement to tell it you were done.

Hi
 to make Date comparison I think U need to use date type vars or convert to

like
    Cdate(text1.text) instead of text1.text

bahnass has the basic correct answer for the date issue.  Consider these text dates:

5/1/2001
5/2/2001
05/03/2001
5/19/2001
5/20/2001

When sorted *As Text*, they will list in this order:
05/03/2001
5/1/2001
5/19/2001
5/2/2001
5/20/2001

Thus, 04/03/2001 is less than (before) 4/1/2001 and 4/2/2001.

Your date comparisons can be quickly rewritten as:
If CDate(DATES(x)) >= CDate(Text1.Text) Then
 If CDate(DATES(x)) <= CDate(Text2.Text) Then

Or, you can place the values into DATE type variables:

Dim DATES(1 to 100) As Date
Dim Dt1 As Date
Dim Dt2 As Date
....
gohere3: Close #1: HOWMANYFILESOPENED = x
Dt1 = CDate(Text1.Text)
Dt2 = CDate(Text2.Text)
For x = 1 To HOWMANYFILESOPENED
If DATES(x) >= Dt1 Then
 If DATES(x) <= Dt2 Then
