Do you mean how to get to it?

1. open up your report in design view
2. if you dont see the properties window, click on View/Properties
3. In the properties window, the top has a dropdown, default is probably Report. Change it to Detail (one part that can handle on print events)
4. Within the list of tabs (Format, Data, Event, Other, All), click on the Events tab
5. You should now see the On Print event. To build an update, click on the button with ... on the right hand side. To add vba, ensure you select code builder
