Printing A form

Hi, i am using VB for applications in Excel. I have a program with which i would like to print the form. I have had no hassle doing so by using the printform command but what i would like to do is have the "Report" that it prints in the center of the screen. Is this possible with VBA as i found it very simple using VB6.

Here is what i would normally use

printer.CurrentX = (printer.Width - Editscreen.Width) / 2
printer.CurrentY = (printer.Width - Editscreen.Width) / 2
Editscreen.PrintForm

When i take out the "printer....." lines it works fine but surprise surprise when i try to use them i get an error.

This is probably a very simple question and the answer is probably No you can't do it, but if i get an answer that says i can i will give out 125 points. If the answer is just no then it'll be a 50.

Thanks

Scott

Not quite following you, here.  You talking about doing a print preview, or what?

Sorry i meant the center of the paper. When i print it out via the printer it puts it to the top left. If possible i would like it to print to either the top center or center of the paper.

Thanks
