VB and Print Preview

Is there a way to preview a document before printing?  We are using a CommonDialogBox to set the printer.  Then we use Printer.Print to print the report.  Some of these reports may be large.  Help

The first two we tried.  These OCXes that you can purchase look promising but my boss is afraid to buy 3rd party tools for fear of no future support.  Let me check out these tools and see if anybody has some simple code solution.

The solution from bobbit31 is not a commercial component, but it's free code! Another one I know of is this:

"QPrinter2"
http://www.qbdsoftware.co.uk/moth/qprinter/qprinter20.htm

That is not only freeware, but also open source. This means that you can use-as-it-is, or you can also modify the sources for your own... :)

Wow, that QPrinter2 seems good!  I guess there is no easy way to do this except with a lot of code or a tool from someone else?  Is it safe to tell my boss there is no easy solution except using one of these tools other people have put alot of time into?
