I need some VBA code that I can insert into a word template.

The code will detected which printer is my default and dependent on this it will change my page setup | paper source to letterhead using the ID for each printer.

If activeprinter=1809, 1802, 1801, 1704
then
firstpage = 1
otherpages = 1

else
firstpage = 2
otherpages = 2

Thanks

Something like this should get the job done.  Be sure to change the trays as desired.

Dim WithEvents wrdApp As Word.Application

Private Sub Document_Open()
    Set wrdApp = Application
End Sub

Private Sub wrdApp_DocumentBeforePrint(ByVal Doc As Document, Cancel As Boolean)
    With Doc.PageSetup
        Select Case Trim(Left(wrdApp.ActivePrinter, InStr(wrdApp.ActivePrinter, " on ")))
            Case "Printer Name #1"
                .FirstPageTray = wdPrinterAutomaticSheetFeed
                .OtherPagesTray = wdPrinterMiddleBin
                Cancel = False
            Case "Printer Name #2"
                .FirstPageTray = wdPrinterAutomaticSheetFeed
                .OtherPagesTray = wdPrinterMiddleBin
                Cancel = False
            Case Else
                Cancel = True
        End Select
    End With
End Sub
