I have an Avery 9100 lable printer.  I can print to it by linking to a table with the data that is needed on the label then clicking the print icon on the avery tool bar.  I need to print to it using the on click event of a command button.  I have found some examples using labelpro but the printer came with designpro.
Has anyone done this?

I have not used Avery before but if it is a standard toolbar you could try this code to simulate the button press
 
Sub subPressButton(strToolbarName As String, intToolbarButtonIndex As Integer)
    Application.CommandBars(strToolbarName).Controls(intToolbarButtonIndex).Execute
End Sub

This is the usage:
subPressButton "Database",2

remember to substitue your avery toolbar name and the button index

If you need more info let me know.

David,
Thanks for the suggestion but I want to create and send the label without using the avery toolbar.  The reasons for this is Avery, to my knowledge,  requires you link to the table each time a label is sent.  

I would be OK with an OCX or an API call but have been instructed to not use toolbar.

thanks for the reply,
Don

Have you tried using a mail merge file in word instead of Avery?

That is the example desing pro gives so i know it would work.  The issue with that is Access is the only product installed on the computers that will be running the application.

The client is OK with using a different low end label printer if you know of one that would print direct from VBA.

thanks again

I take it that the printer cannot handle standard documents being sent to it as if it was a normal printer? Most label printers I have seen can do this.

This question is being withdrawn.  the client is using a standard printer with flat label stock.  

Thanks for all who replied.
