Send a String to a printer
Posted on 2003-03-18
We just receive a new printer "Brady 200 MVP" and I have to create a program in access that will take a serial number from a bar code and print it on a small void sticker "1 1/2' / .5'". the code to print the sticker is working "I tested it by copying the code to lpt1 in DOS". my problem is that when I try to do the same thing with access, it always generate me errors. I could program access to insert the string into a text file and then call a batch file that would print it but I would rather use only one program.
I tried to use Printer.print but could'nt get this option, when I type printer.pr I only get
I am sure there must be an easier way than sending the string and then calling a batch file to do send the text file to the printer but im stuck.
