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

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
