how to create a table to send to a printer

Hi Experts.

I've produced a form that I would like to print the fileds onto a table including borders and let the user select which printer they would like to send it to using the standard windows printer properties.

Your help will be much appreciated. If you need any more information please ask.

Many Thanks
Lee
