How to change printer from Access db

I want to change default printer programatically from Access database.  I know how to do it from VB, but it looks like Access VBA does not have Printers collection. I was trying to change rpt.PrtDevName = MyPrinterName, but did not manage to make it work.
Any help will be appreciated.
