Auto printing from a submit button

Using Frontpage 2000,  Have created a form that is connected to an Access 2000 Database. When the submit button is clicked it sends the data to my access database.

I need it to also print a copy of this form automatically to the users default printer... Is this possible ?

Edit the line where the submit button is to read like the following:

<input type="submit" value="Submit Comments" onclick="window.print()">

You just need to add the onclick portion. This will click the form with all of the data in it. If you have any text area boxes, make sure they are big enough to view all data.

Place this code at the top of your results page

<Script Language = "Javascript">
window.print()
</script>

This will open the print dialogue box and allow the user to print the page.

I do not have a results page.  Only my main form page and a confirmation page.

Note - If you are using the fp generated form there is really no way to modify the results. If you have built a confirmation page then use my first comment at the top of the confirmation page.

The onlick worked great... The only problem is that all of my fields have validation rules, therefore if they skip a control and press the submit button they will receive the validation error as well as a print box....

But I'm ok with this unless there is a way to remedy it...

The best way to remedy this is to have your page submit to a confirmation page and place the first code I gave you at the top of the page. You can create your own page and have it display the form results.

What are you doing with the form? If the information is being recorded in a database then have the form submit to an ASP page and then have the page display and print the results.
