I sometimes want to print a series of the same report in a loop- and I do NOT want the "printer? copies? coallated?" dialog box to pop up.

How can I suppress the printer dialog?

first off

wich version of everything are you using?

there are some properties in the report that allow you to
disable the dialog box.



using the OCX.

myreport.copiestoprinter=3

The PrintOut method prints out the specified pages of the report to the default printer specified in the report.
