The Report object of the RDC has a SelectPrinter method:

Sub SelectPrinter (pDriverName As String, pPrinterName As String, _
pPortName As String)

I sometimes use it in correlation with the CRViewer's PrintButtonClicked event:

Private Sub Viewer_PrintButtonClicked(UseDefault As Boolean)

    UseDefault = False  'Don't use the default printer
   
    'CRPaperOrientation and CRPaperSize are Enumerated type _
        members of the CRAXDRT library
    Dim cOrientation As CRPaperOrientation
    Dim cSize As CRPaperSize
   
    'Get the report's current orientation and paper size
    cOrientation = crxRpt.PaperOrientation
    cSize = crxRpt.PaperSize
   
    crxRpt.PrinterSetup Me.hWnd     'Call the Printer Setup dialog

    'Loop through the Printers collection to ensure the correct _
        printer gets set for the report
    Dim p As Printer
    For Each p In Printers
        If p.DeviceName = crxRpt.PrinterName Then
            crxRpt.SelectPrinter p.DriverName, p.DeviceName, p.Port
            Exit For
        End If
    Next p

    'Reset the report's PaperOrientation and PaperSize properties _
        to override the "new" printer's defaults
    crxRpt.PaperOrientation = cOrientation
    crxRpt.PaperSize = cSize
   
    'Prompt the user for page numbers, copies, etc.
    crxRpt.PrintOut True, 1
   
    'To print directly to the printer, comment out the above line, _
        and uncomment the next line
    'crxRpt.PrintOut False, 1

End Sub
