What is the default printer for Access 97?
Posted on 2009-04-30
I found out that Access 97 can eventually not use Windows default printer when you click on "Immediately Print" icon.
For other Office applicattions like Word or Excel there are basically 2 ways to print:
1. Immediate: using the icon on top menu bar file is printed immediately on Windows default printer.
2. Not Immediate: using the menu bar item "File", then Print, a dialog box "Printing" is open and you can select a printer different from the Windows default. So you can print a document with a different print than Windows default but keeping the Windows default.
Well this is not valid for Access 97 !!!!
If you print in a"Not Immediate" way, I mean using the "Printing" dialog box and selecting a different printer than Windows default and then you try to print in "Immediate" way, the print job will not be directed to Windows default printer but to the last printer used.
It looks like Access '97 had its "own default printer."
Well, question is, how can I retrieve which is the "Access own default printer" at any time?. Most of the routines I got were to retrieve Windows default printer.
I suppose that "Windows own default printer" must be saved as property of some Access object. Which is it?
