Printing a report in Visual Basic from an Array

I have a vb  program that reads a sql database for errors.  When it finds an error it writes to an array. (this works).   I want to write these errors out to a report but the only problem is that the number of errors is larger than one form page so they scroll off the page and I cannot see the other errors.  I need another solution to generate an error report to display to the user.  Can anyone help.

Try this litlle code and a correct it to your application:


Option Explicit
Dim MyArray(100)
Dim ContPrint
Dim N

Private Sub CommandPrint_Click()
   ContPrint = 1000
   For N = 0 To 100
      Printer.CurrentX = 1000
      Printer.CurrentY = ContPrint
      Printer.Print MyArray(N)
      ContPrint = ContPrint + 240
      If ContPrint >= 15000 Then
         ContPrint = 1000
      End If
   Next N
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()
For N = 0 To 100
   MyArray(N) = N
Next N
End Sub

Use a TextBox with the MultiLine property set to True
and the ScrollBars property set to 2.

I agree with DocM. If you are only going to show this to the user why complicate your life :)
