I am using Access 2000 and VB 6.3.  I want a button on a screen that will print the screen.  I've got the screen saved on the clipboard, but I cannot figure out how to print it.  I've tried several Printer commands such as Printer.PaintPicture Clipboard.GetData(), 0, 0 but that doesn't work.  I can't even Printer.Print "".  They all result in an Object Required error.  Help!
