Flexibility of Printform, Printing Mulitple forms and Forms with Tabs

I have used the Printform command in VB before.  It works very well for printing the screen currently displayed.  Is there any flexibility in this command?  For example can I set up some code that will print multiple forms without making the user open the form, click the "print' button (which executes the Printfrom), close the form and repeat as many times as their are forms.  I would like them to be able to print a group of forms with 'one click'.  

Also I have a form set up using Tabbed Dialog Controls.  Is there any way to have a 'one click' solution to printing all of the tab panels, each panel on a seperate page.  I know that the user can click on each tab individually and then print it but once again I am looking for convenience for the user.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You dont need to open the forms you want to print using printform.  And, yes, you can print the SSTab tabs as well. See below an example:

Private Sub Command1_Click()
Dim c As Integer
Form1.PrintForm
Form2.PrintForm
For c = 0 To Form3.SSTab1.Tabs - 1
    Form3.SSTab1.Tab = c
    Form3.PrintForm
Next c
End Sub

In this example you cal form2 and form3 from a command button in form1, and loop among the tabs on form3.
