Try this:

Dim ii As Long
For ii = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
  Printer.Print List1.List(ii)

The ListBox is a collection, so you have to loop thru all the items in order to print them
using the "For...Next" loop structure as in the above example.

Just replace List1 with the name of your listbox control.

I’m using VB, I’ve just tried your code and it works fantastic, thank you very much :-))

Ps Is there any way off printing the list without highlighting an item or having the items highlighted by default so all the operator need to do is press the print button??

The above example will print everything in the listbox without the need to highlight/select the items.

If you would like to print just the selected items then you would do something like this:

For ii = 0 To List1.ListCount - 1
  If List1.Selected(ii) = True Then
     Printer.Print List1(ii)
  End If

This example best works on a ListBox with the "MultiSelect" property set to "Extended"
