I have a VB6 application that I would like to have the ability to open and view an Access database report and print it.  Is there a way to do that?

Set a reference to teh MS Access library in references:

sub makeRPT()

Dim acApp As Access.Application
Dim rpt As Access.Report

acApp.OpenCurrentDatabase "DBPath"     'path of db to open
Set rpt = acApp.CreateReport(acApp.CurrentDb, ReportTemplate)    'ReportTemplate is name of rreport tmplate.

rpt.Print

end sub
