I have a form in my application which is actually a reciept. Is it possible to transfer all that data in to a word file in the exact format so i can save it or print it?
Watch Question

If the form is standard, you could make a word template,
open word through VB.NET app, replace text in bookmarked positions in that template with the data from your form, then possible save the document.

Otherwise, maybe you would want to take a snapshot of the form and save it as an image...

It depends upon what you intend to do with the information.
