I am writing a module that will print out checks on a 3 part form.  Its not printing anything fancy but I would like to be able to print a logo in the upper left corner and print "black shaded box" around the legal amount does anyone have any suggestions?  I am using all VB code at the moment to do this and would like to continue in this route if possible.  As always I seem to be in a bind for time so any examples would be appreciated!!!

Printer.CurrentX = 300
Printer.CurrentY = 300
picLogo.AutoSize = True

Dim X As Integer
Dim Y As Integer

X = Printer.CurrentX
Y = Printer.CurrentY

Printer.Line (X - 100, Y - 100)-(picLogo.Width + X + 100, picLogo.Height + Y + 100), vbBlue, BF

Printer.PaintPicture Form1.picLogo, X, Y

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Crash2100, Thanks for your help. That was exactly what I needed on the logo!  Does anyone have any suggestions on the legal amount how I would shade the line or box around it?  I will increase and split points if someone else provides that answer.

'to change the position of any of the boxes, just use the line statements like this.
'the B at the end means draw a box, and the F means fill that box
'  Printer.Line (intBoxUpperLeftX, intBoxUpperLeftY)-(intBoxLowerRightX, intBoxLowerRightY), intColor, BF


Dim X As Integer
Dim Y As Integer

Printer.CurrentX = 300
Printer.CurrentY = 300

picLogo.BorderStyle = 0
picLogo.AutoSize = True

X = Printer.CurrentX
Y = Printer.CurrentY

Printer.Line (X - 100, Y - 100)-(picLogo.Width + X + 100, picLogo.Height + Y + 100), vbBlue, BF

Printer.PaintPicture picLogo, X, Y

Printer.DrawWidth = 8  'makes the lines thicker

'draws a box around the number amount
X = 5250
Y = 900
Printer.Line (X, Y)-(X + 1100, Y + 280), vbBlue, B


'draws a box around the hand written amount
X = 350
Y = 1200
Printer.Line (X, Y)-(X + 5700, Y + 280), vbBlue, B

Printer.EndDoc
