Try chaning it to the following


this is what my code looks like

printDialog1.Document = ThePrintDocument;
string strText = "Company Number: " + this.lblProjectNo.Text
      + "Company Name" + this.txtProjectName.Text
     + " Year " + this.txtYear.Text
     + "\r\nContactName " + this.cmbName.Text;

what I added was the \r\n which is the return character and the newline. I put both there because one or the other should do the trick so you can try it with \r and if that doesn't work try \n.
