loop through the listview.listitems.count concantinating each subitem into a string and then send the string to the printer.

Private Sub mnuFilePrint_Click()
    Dim BeginPage, EndPage, NumCopies, Orientation, i, strOut, X
    Dim List As ListItem
    CommonDialog1.CancelError = True
    On Error GoTo ErrHandler
   
    CommonDialog1.ShowPrinter
   
    BeginPage = CommonDialog1.FromPage
    EndPage = CommonDialog1.ToPage
    NumCopies = CommonDialog1.Copies
    Orientation = CommonDialog1.Orientation
    For i = 1 To (listview.ListItems.Count)
        Set List = listview.ListItems.Item(i)
        For X = 1 To 5
            strOut = strOut & List.SubItems(X)
        Next
    Next
    For i = 1 To NumCopies
        Printer.Print strOut
    Next
ErrHandler:
    Exit Sub
End Sub

This subroutine prints the contents of a ListView control in report view. The parameter Lines specifies the number of rows that will be printed, beginning with the first row. If LV.ListCount is less than the parameter Lines, then all the rows will be printed. The columns in the LV control are tabbed to be uniformly distributed across the page.

Public Sub PrintListView(LV As ListView, Lines%)
    Dim i%, LVWidth%, NewTab%, j%
    Dim itmX As ListItem
    Dim LineCount%
   
    LVWidth = 0
    For i = 1 To LV.ColumnHeaders.Count
        LVWidth = LVWidth + LV.ColumnHeaders(i).Width
    Next
    NewTab = 0
    For i = 1 To LV.ColumnHeaders.Count
        NewTab = NewTab + CInt(LV.ColumnHeaders(i).Width * Printer.ScaleWidth / LVWidth)
        Printer.Print LV.ColumnHeaders(i).Text;
        Printer.CurrentX = NewTab
    Next
    Printer.Print
    If Lines < LV.ListItems.Count And Lines <> 0 Then
        LineCount = Lines
    Else
        LineCount = LV.ListItems.Count
    End If
    For i = 1 To LineCount
        NewTab = 0
        Set itmX = LV.ListItems(i)
        Printer.Print itmX.Text;
        For j = 1 To LV.ColumnHeaders.Count - 1
            NewTab = NewTab + CInt(LV.ColumnHeaders(j).Width * Printer.ScaleWidth / LVWidth)
            Printer.CurrentX = NewTab
            Printer.Print itmX.SubItems(j);
        Next
        Printer.Print
    Next
 
End Sub
