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.

You were close but you also need to set the PrtDevMode it appears.

I use a product called Print Batch Manager to do this as well.
