Hi Experts.

I have a flexgrid on vb6 and want to print the contents of it. I currently us the code: -

  Printer.PaintPicture MSFlexGrid1.Picture, 0, 0
  Printer.EndDoc

but this only prints 1 page. Sometimes the flexgrid has so much data it has to be printed on multiple pages. How do I go about doing this please.

Many Thanks
Lee

OK. What I have done in the past is to loop through each row and populate to the reporting tool (use whatever you use). This will allow you to control everything you need to make a nice format and even put column headers on each page.

Before you resort to this amount of work, wait and see if someone has a better code that you can try. I know there is a quick and dirty one out their.

I found one more thing you could try. This is one of those quick and dirty code that should work.
